    I've got a XL125S with a non-CV carb. I just installed a rebuild kit
    which I assumed used all the stock specifications. It runs now but
    when I give it gas it bogs down a little and then takes off.
    Mid-range and high-end throttle response are fine. This does not
    happen with the choke on.

    On a CV carb this behaviour is caused by the floats adjusted to low,
    right? Is this the same on a non-CV carb? Before I start tinkering I
    would like some "expert" advice.

    Thanks for the advice. The carb did not work at all before I had
    rebuilt it. All the brass inside was green and clogged. It is
    possible that something is lodged somewhere because I didn't use
    compressed air to blow out the carb (I don't have a compressor).

    The info about the float height came from one of these sites:,CV,high_rpm_engines.html
