IT DOES NOT MATTER IF YOU DIDN'T TAKE THEM APART, ONLY THAT YOU TOOK THEM OFF!!
Carbs MUST be synced EVERY time you pull them from the engine. Things move slightly, and that is all it takes. Ask motoman, Bonz, or any of the guys that have seen all the things that will go wrong with these bikes.

There is a WORLD of difference when things are set properly. You will find the bike seems to want to rev, or idle along, with no problems when the carbs are properly set up.
Read through here for ideas on homemade sync tools, etc. http://www.xs11.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=30
