Check to see where the carb vent hose is located. It needs to be in dead air space, wind will prevent gas from filling the carbs.

Make sure the fuel hoses don't run upward anywhere.

Pod filters are only a problem when the design blocks ports at the carb intake. Do you know what brand the filters are?

So two things, I never did the ear shave, are there still carb boots involved when you switch to pods?
Also if it’s bogging at 70 wouldn’t that clear the pilot jet since that’s only in play below 3000rpms or so??

I’d lean towards the leaky boot/filter because it sounds like the mixture is getting thrown off.
Yes, the boot between the carb and cylinder head is always there, a leak on the other side doesn't usually cause the high idle.

True, pilot jet wouldn't be in play at 70 mph.

Have to rule out the easy stuff first, then move on if the problem persists. A leaking diaphragm, maybe, but the others seem more likely.
