Wow, took me at least two hours to get those carbs back on. It's like giving birth in reverse!

And... it worked! No leaking carb on my initial test!

What did I f*** up this time? Well, the throttle... when I started it back up, it was revving like crazy.

I think I bent the tab where the throttle cable comes into the carbs, so there is less play. I was trying to adjust on the handlebar, but am not getting slack no matter how I adjust it. Which way to turn the nut to make it looser? It seems like it would be clockwise, but it's hard to tell... and it seemed like it was already all the way clockwise (against the grip side).

One step forward, two steps back!
