I have a 1982 honda xl185s that has ben in storage for the last ten years. I pulled the carb off and cleaned it the bike will idel just fine but when you get to about 1/8 throttle it starts to bog until you get to 6/8 throttle what do I need to do to fix this.
If it ran fine before, I would clean the carburetor again.
1/8th to 3/4 throttle is controlled by the needle and needle jet. The needle jet can have tiny holes along it's length. As well as all associated passages through the carburetor body.
Is the choke stuck on? Simlilar symptoms can arise.
