Thanks for info and quick responses guys! Got a coil ordered as well as NGK plug cap. Checked all of the grounds last night and they were good (kill switch too). I'll post back with results. Thanks again!

Received and installed the new cheap coil yesterday. Funny thing I noticed was that the throttle was kinda stuck and hard to twist the first couple of times I tried it before attempting to start. It started first kick and idled well for about 10 seconds then died. Didn't really want to start and run again. Figured it must be the CDI then. Pushed it back into the garage only to notice that it was starting to puddle gas onto the garage floor out of the float bowl overflow. I'll take carb off tonight and inspect.

Best fully investigate throttle issue. That stuff will hurt you.
Check cable, throttle, and carb. Any scratches on needle get back to us.

On disassembly of the carb, this is what I found:
Main Jet: 175
Pilot Jet: 42
Idle Screw: 4 turns out
Pilot air screw: 2 turns out
Float Height: ~6.3mm reset to ~7.5mm
Needle visually perfect with the exception of a small gummy/rubbery lump just below slide.
Slide has some visual wear on lower section of intake side.

I didn't remove the needle to try and identify. I believe PO said it was a Yamaha needle. I have new JD needles. Should I install the Red one?

Vent hoses were all kinda crusty and stiff, so I am replacing.

I also ordered new Gasgas CDI and Coil. It should be here by tomorrow.

Am I missing anything else? I just want to get this bike running like I know it should! Thanks for your help.

Put the new CDI and coil in and put new N3EJ needle in clip #3. Started first kick and idled and ran ok. Seems to rev out more than it did before replacing CDI and coil. I think I need to work on the needle jetting. 0-1/4 throttle is perfect, but cant seem to get cleanly up to redline. I live at ~700' elevation but will do most of my summer riding around 4-5k feet. Any suggestions are appreciated? I guess I should just take a bunch of new plugs with me in a couple weeks when we are up in the mountains and start sorting it out. Thanks for all of your help!
