Thank you guys for chiming in, I've read the post you posted. I do have the battery out and I'm going to bring it to advance auto after work to see if it's weak. The carb I bought is not OEM but I figured I'd try it first and if it works well enough until I have the factory carb rebuilt I'll be happy with it as a temp solution. I just want the freaking thing running/shifting normal so I have the peace of mind I didn't just throw away $1000. We bought it for our daughters to ride with my wife and I and the guy who sold it to me said it was all good and it did start and ride fine at his house but the hour ride home thing is dead and now my problem to deal with. Thanks again for any input, I appreciate it.
