Question about Honda CB 500 Motorcycles
First of all you should make absolutely sure that the intake valve seals shut and the float height / fuel level is correctly adjusted in the problem carb.
All components (especially the jets and the needle) must be identical in both carbs check them to be sure. If some parts look worn out replace them with new ones
Use the carb that runs just fine as a base and start adjusting - first lower the needle a notch, then raise the air screw but lower the valve.
BTW you can use a flow meter to balance the carbs, all you need to do is to take the airbox out of the frame.
