Blowing it out with compressed air can force that fluid into places its not supposed to go. It should be removed any time a cleaning is performed. But that's me and I'm anal like that.

I think either your TPS is bunk, your carb maybe didn't get fully cleaned due to an incomplete dip, OR your auto compression release is fuxored.

The bike was fucking up like this looong before I cleaned the carb. It seems as though a lot of people run with the TPS disconnected anyways. I tried it and get the same issues.

I haven't pulled the decompression yet. I spent the last few hours disconnecting every plug on the bike, cleaning it, putting in corrosion inhibitor, and reinstalling it all. I also traced every wire on the bike to check for issues, removed all grounds/cleaned them/corrosion inhibitor, same with the battery terminals, and replaced one suspect looking wire. Took it out for a spin a few minutes ago. Ran strong, couldn't get it to run funky at all. I'm not holding my breath though, because the last time I did some stuff to it, it ran fine for a while and then came back.

Edit: I am going to test the TPS before I go any further into anything else, as well as pull the decompression lever. I'm not trying to ignore any potential problems or dismiss what you say; I'm just tired of screwing with the damn thing for the day

Understood....I have days like that too.

Tested the TPS, stator, pulser coil and they were all fine. Cleaned the decompression lever and it's good. I found riding it that at low rpm's, it runs fine but when I get on the main circuit, as the rpm's go higher, the stutter gets worse, so I'm assuming the carb still isn't clean. I'm done screwing with it and will be dropping it off with Nel's for him to play with it. I'm sure he'll have it going with no sweat.
