    Install some sort of pressure regualtor or adjustable restrictor. The tee is simple I set it once with the gauge to achieve 1-2 psi at idle and 5-7 at WOT and I'm done gauge goes back in the box.

    You can see the plastic encapsulated in the rubber on the center pic looks like you would have to go a little deeper to completely expose the wire. This mod definitely has merit.

    I dug all the wire out I just cut it to get a better look. I found that if you loosen all the epoxy around the wire, you can can grasp the plug wire with a small needle nose and it wil pull right out. Then I did the rest of the cleaning with some dental tools. I am going to cut the whole coil in half tomorrow......Just stated to spell real bad(prob not good) so I will finish it tomorrow. With the help of you(bill) me, and the natrix(name?) we should make this a sticky? Of course once we can prefect and clean this up a bit. Thoughts?

    Did you ever solve the dribbling issue? I have the same issue. I believe the original flame arrester and bracing spacer that bolts to the head held the vibration down enough to stop the dribbling. When its removed the vibration increases and the needle leaks. I replaced everything and still dribbles , I have just purchased a reed spacer plate that pulls back the reeds from the crank. It may dampen the vibration along with putting the the stock airbox back on . Fingers crossed.

    Update, as others have found you can replace every part in the carbs but it will still dribble alot. Fuel economy is terrible even from new. So i have looked and puzzled long and hard over this. These are my thoughts, fuel flows through the metal jet cover to the low speed jet and the high speed jet. The only thing that prevents fuel going straight to the high speed is the small plastic petal (reed) that is 2 thou thick . Now I believe that it is the cause of the dribbling under heavy vibration. I don't know why it's so thin.
    I note that others have doubled up on these reeds , but considering how thin they are I think four times the thickness might stop the the dribbling. Any over pressurizing of the regulator circuit makes it worse. I have done the fuel return line mod so all the fuel pumps work together.
