when you get the bike started you need to adjust the pilot air screw. here's how= turn in clock wise until engine falters(mark that spot with a pin)then out counterclock wise until the engine falters(mark that spot also) then put the screw in half amount adjustment of the two marks.that will take care of if it is to lean or to rich.make sure the engine is good and warm before doing so.

SOURCE: Cleaning Carb Jets
not to a trained ear also go by rpm and spark plug color
NOTE: use copper wire to clean jets, sync is just thottles are same position as all carb's just leave them adjustments alone will be fine if are out use a 1/8 drill an place in between piston/butterfly to carb bore to sync/calibrate
better use a manometer for adjusting screws
depends on condition of org parts
worn = richer running
new = lean an clean
also if changed the exhaust system need to
re-calibrate carbs for max performance

hi,fairly common problem with modified exhaust,start with the pilot screws,turn right in untill the screws are firm then back out 1 and 3/4 turns,this is a fairly standard rule of thumb that will get most things going,as far as the jets go,the original size would be a good starting point,but you should only need to go up 10-15 sizes to compensate for the exhaust mods(ie stock might be 127 may need to go to138 or 140 etc),the other thing that i would recommend is getting hold of a set of damped carb balancers these will enable you to get the mixtures and carb balance dead right,they are relitively cheap and easy to use and will have paid for themselves the first time you use them.(i regularly get 4-8 sometimes 10-11 extra hp over stock by tuning the carbs up properly).hope this helps

buddy change the plug also on the carb there will be a idle screw turn this in 1/4 of a turn with the machine running and get back to me

tap the bowl with a block of wood. Eventually you will need to take off the carb, diassemble it, and soak all the parts in solvent for an hour
