Alright, it's a no go. Got it to idle beautifully for several minutes after a few fuel line configurations, and took it out for a test drive, promptly burned all the fuel from my carbs and killed it. Soo looks like I'm looking for the tw200. I may get out there and try some more line configurations while it's shipping. Damn fluid dynamics.
Update edit: TW200 still running perfectly, even squeezed a fuel filter in there just for insurance. after a day of remembering to cut your fuel just before you kill it to clear some room, you'll never forget to turn it off, it just becomes part of how you turn on/off your bike.
