This is a critical adjustment. There is no actual choke, it is an "enrichener circuit" just a hair off and it will run very badly or not run at all. If you had the carbs completely apart, and removed the rod that connects the plungers on both carbs, make sure you got it all back together right. When I had my carbs apart, by far the hardest part was reconnecting the rod and linkage to the rear carb. There was a spring, and several washers and plastic spacers, and a very small screw holding it all together. Not only was it difficult to put together, it was hard to hold together while assembling the carb halves.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
