:icon_cool:so i got my carb rebild kit and the service manual.wow that manual is very
deatled i have been reading it a lot. so i got started i put the carb in a pot of
boiling water for 20 mints wowo thats what i call clean... then i used my hand heald blaster with bakeing soda in it and blasted all the build up and tarnish off the carb and then set throttle valve synchronization. my carb was way out of speck.. then i set up the mane needle jet seting of lean or rich.
so mine old needle jet was in the midle so i was thinking if i have a better flowing air filter so i better let a bit more fule in so i made it one step richer.
now time to asmble the clean carb with new parts what a great feeling..
today i put the carb in and wowo it runs great it idles like new lol lol.
it still wont start unless u give it some throtle o well i need to make some ajusment ???? so its great it is runing agen and so much better.i need to find a portable tachometer where can i find one??????????????

I would just get one of these. You can order online or your local auto parts store probably has them.

Amazon.com: Actron CP7605 Dwell/Tachometer/Voltmeter Analyzer:…
Just wondering what is used for? is it hard to use?
You can use it for a tachometer or voltmeter. It is also a dwell meter for use with points on older engines. In Ivanator's case, he was looking for a tachometer, probably to measure the idle speed. And yes, they're easy to use.

is there a tach that works like that, that you can mount permanently??
You should be able to hook any tach gauge up to an ATV, just like an automobile.

sweet, im not familiar with how tachs hook up but that clip onto the wire kind seemed easy.
The other kind just hook to the hot wire going to the coil.
