I wouldn't change float height unless it checked low. If the float is too high it will flood.
Check to make sure they are in spec. I would not change them if they are.Yes checked diaphrahms under a very bright light. Both make the woosh sound when lifting them up and also when coming down. Both drop evenly and slowley. My last and final option and i mean final option is to reposition the floats to allow more fuel in the bowl. Looking at the plugs yesterday, rear seems to be lean and front a tad rich. Although it was only idleing so not sure how viable the results are on the plugs. But its my last thing to try. I can conform it has compression, withing 15 psi of each other, it has spark both idleing and when throttle is twisted. It is getting fuel, weather its enough or not im not sure, there are no leaks of any kind and timing is spot on. I will try the floats again even though they were set right on the marks but i will try it anyway.
Thanks for the input. I had it ear shaved and totaly stock also. Both with the same results. I originaly had the earshave with stock exhaust but same situation. So i changed things up to see would it make a difference, which it did not. Goats belly on or off, ears on or off, nothing seems to be working. As for the floats. I set them according to the manual. New gaskets and float needles also. I really think i am out of options at this point. I went trough the wires again last nite and found where the previous owner joined the kickstand switch wires together. This cracked where it was joined so i put it back together properly again with good connections. I have not started it yet since then. Im not sure if that would cause the engine from reving or not but needed fixing anyhow so worth a try.How "leaky" is leaky? And is it stock? I

If plenty of gas then is it getting enough air ?Yes the bike idles perfect. Fuel flow seems to be good. Both pipes get hot pretty evenly.
He posted that it idled slightly better when he lifted a slide.If plenty of gas then is it getting enough air ?
When you twist the throttle, do the slides move at all besides the vibrating ?
What happens if you slightly lift a slide with the throttle rolled open ? (gotta be careful of backfire here)
I had the throttle open full and i lifted the 2 slides. Had help from the missus to hold the throttle. As for do they lift on there own with the throttle open, yes but only to the point that it bogs down.I'm with you, Spockster, but I don't think he had the throttle rolled open when he did it. It's baffling, so I wonder about the butterflies and the ignitor.
