    Pretty soon you need to start doing things that make you feel good about yourself, sometimes it's just the small stuff, a beer with a friend, morning coffee, break your old routine.  Try and get rid of all the negative crap your dealing with now, concentrate on nothing but positive stuff, you'll catch on, your no dumby, once you start you will be smiling again.

    It completely depends on the head... If it's a stock head, you don't need to do anything beyond re-jetting.

    You know, as I think about it, it's quite ironic..... 
    I was running the web store, repair shop, answer this site, emails, youtube and running computer business on the side and literally went into over load..... It was too much.... But now, all I can seem to do is work work work, only thing keeping my head straight.

    Im gunna roll with what this guy said. not  a whole lot to add.
    Your 24 can be jetted to work just fine, but to compliment your build, you know what to do.

    Ya I'm in bed about midnight and up around 7,  been doing yard work, clean up after winter, went out on the scoot a few times, short rides still pretty cold, and too much sand on the roads, but still feels pretty good.

    The 28mm CVK should be fine with good jetting. I have always wanted to get into the whole ecotrons and fuel injection on a small scale engine, but time has not been my friend for the past few years so I only get time to barely put things together. Let us know how the new CVK works with the setup, post some pics.

    I have a spare kleihim 28mm cvk. I'm trying not to get too much deeper in the hole. I just took off an Ecotrons EFI kit that I dropped almost $700 into, just to see it sit on my bench. I may step into a newer carb eventually but I haven't been able to get that crap sold or traded to save my life.

    To get the most out of the build, I'd say the best move would be to get a larger carb. I saw great improvements moving to a larger carb on my 155cc build, I used a PWK 26 Nibbi slide carb and have not regretted it. I would like to try moving to a 28mm carb and see how the motor likes it. Dan has a new line of Mikuni carbs that should really bring these motors to life.

    180cc bbk carb size?
    My 180cc bbk swap is done. Should I stick with the rejetted 24mm carb or get something a bit larger?

    I have a similar "undocumented" port on my NIBBI CVK26. I never got an answer as to specifically what it was for. Left open, the engine would starve. So I hooked it up to the vacuum lines and all is well. I'd start with that.

    Remember one thing, most of us have been thru this stuff before, the wife, well that takes about a year to get over, in the head, your mom is very important,  we usually only have one of those, keep yourself busy, the less time to think about crap the less it will eat you up, don't ask me how I know, cheers bud.
