    Since it happened after winter storage, I would think it's a fuel problem. Have you checked the fuel filter? Have you pulled the screens in the tank? I remove those and replace them with rubber...

    Back to the beginning. When you had the carbs apart, did you inspect the internal filters? Did you install any new parts? If so, where did you get them?

    Be advised, DO NOT REMOVE THE CHOKES ON AN ULTRA 150!!! It will run lean and burn up the engine. You'll have to re-direct the discharge elsewhere.

    Welcome aboard, rockman!

    Don't be pinching off the oil lines. Extra oil won't hurt anything.

    Did you buy a paper element filter? Can't use those. Use one with a microscreen.

    I think you'll have to change the ECU and immobilizer key. The harness from an STX-15F won't have wiring for trim. I really don't know if the STX ECU will plug into the LX harness or not.

    The parts book shows that '04-'06 complete assemblies to be the same. Don't know what the differences are for earlier years. Specifically, which carb, and what part are you looking for?
