    Spark plug soaked in fuel, stuck slider?

    I have a 2000 Max with 73,000 miles on it, stock carbs, jets, and exhaust. For the last 4 months, it has been running as if one or two cylinders are not firing. At a red light, the idle will switch from perfect to a stutter (like a Harley), then back to perfect, within the same red light...

    A/F mix screw stuck. Will a 1300 Venture carb fit?

    I've been reading and trying to get the A/F mixture screw out of the right rear carb. Can't get it out. My question is this: can I buy a 34mm carb from a 1300 Venture, dusassemble both carbs, swap the jets and replace just one carb?
