Some things to ponder . . .

What liquid did you boil your carbs in ?

I see you've stated your going to replace the mains with genuine mikuni.

Actually all jets and float needles and seats should be genuine mikuni.

Are you sure the enrichener shafts are sealing properly ?

Have you changed the butterfly shaft seals ?

1979 XS1100SF (stock-euro mods planned)
1984 XV700L Virago (to be hot-modded)
1983 XJ750MK Midnight Maxim (semi-restored DD)
1977 XS650D ( patiently awaiting resto)

Sometimes it takes a whole tank of gas before you can think straight.
