Installed the airbox cover and seal, they were missing. This didn't help the way it was running (but it doesn't hurt either).
The exhaust heat shield arrived this morning. Purely a comfort item.
This afternoon got the new petcock and carb kit.
Installed the new petcock. The old one leaked and the screen was nonexistent, mostly. The base of it was corroded to the tank outlet. It appears someone poked out (in?) the mesh.
It now runs much more consistently once well warmed up. Previously it would not rev to higher rpm, or it would bog at low rpm but run good n fast. Now it does both.
I may still install the carb kit, mostly for the new float needle/seat. The carb was varnish-free despite the fuel inlet initially bring clogged.
Getting closer to trusting it enough to ride it somewhere other than our flat average. Live in rural AZ next to a few rugged mountain ranges, like just a few miles away on each side of our valley.
Once running right, it will need front wheel bearings and the left rear tire has a slow leak (2-3 day leak).
New rear axle spins by hand and has no play. Lock nuts still tight (I marked them).
