Thank God, Carb issues solved!!

I have been fighting with my bike off and on for several years. I had my carbs professionally cleaned, and thought my problems were gone. The front cylinder began fireing like it should, and then a week later it all went to hell again. After the carb cleaning I noticed that the vent hose for the carbs was not in the right ear so I pulled it and stuck it back in. I thought the problem was bad fuel, weak electrical...... Pulled the seat and tank on Sunday and found out that the vent hose was pinched at a 45 deg. angle under the tank. Pulled the hose off and reassembled. It runs like new. I'll guess I'll keep it and start adding chrome.

I'd like to thank everybody that has given me advice over the years.
