    Ollie, you are incorrect. This is a shadow vlx carburetor. The mixture screw is on the rear end of the carb. So the opposite is true. You will check the mixture screws which are under aluminum caps on the side of the carburetor towards the bottom. (the aluminum caps may already be drilled out and removed) If not, you will have to do this. There is a forum dedicated to shadows. Check their for the procedure. You will turn these screws OUT to give a more rich mixture for your idle circuit. This can reduce popping. Also, make sure you synchronize that twin, as you will get MUCH better performance from the machine and throttle response will increase too.

Hi, Jon #1&2 are jumping up and down waving red flags yelling "Pick Me Pick Me" otherwise the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty wiring to any safety switch.
2. Safety switches loose at the mounting point.
3. Faulty kickstand safety switch.
4. Failed kickstand safety switch circuit diode.
5. Stretched side stand spring.
6. Side stand not coming up far enough to disengage switch.
7. Faulty clutch lever safety switch.
