I wonder if the clutch cable is routed wrong. I would check to see if the cable is somehow causing a movement of the carb linkage when pulled. There is a certain routing for the cables, and the manual should show it. Keep asking questions, and take pics of what you think the problems might be.Use photobucket for the pics, and put them on the thread. Most of all, don't get discouraged. The answers are there, sometimes it just takes a bit to find them. Remember that these bikes are not youngsters, and things probably have been replaced, and not always right.
