It usally pays to count the turns in before you remove them, but you probably know that by now.
Try them at around 2 turns out, and see how smooth the idle is. and try them a quarter of a turn in and out and listen to the difference. if you get a couple of vacumn gauges, they can help and then set the syncronization between the two carbs.
If you do try this and it may take a while, get an industrial fan to cool the engine as you do it, cause as the engine warms the mixture changes.
The pilot screws and carb sync have their biggest effect at idle.
You can also adjust the pilot mixture one cylnder at a time, by removing a plug lead, put another plug in the cap and short it to the frame, so it wont damage the coil,
and adjust the mixture as if its a 550 single then do the other cylnder

Bike starts and idles but if you take the choke off it cuts off


sounds like the pilot jets are clogged,need to clean/rebuild carb,(carb kit).

Won't idle without choke


The pilot jet controls the air/gas fuel mix at idle . If the jet gets plugged up not enough gas gets to the emgine at idle. You will need to remove the carbs and float bowls and clean them, paying special attention to the pilot valve. Count the number of turns to remove the pilot screw and replace the same number of turns then turn counter clockwise 1/2 turn.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!
