Awsome. Looks like that was exactly the issue.

Like I said, I knew that my petcocks (mostly my left ones) leaked a little when turned off, but in the past, it always leaked out of my pod filter...

I did open my petcocks. In fact, both of my petcocks have a tendency to leak slightly even when closed. So let me go check the oil level. That's a good call.

This bike hasn't sat for more than...

I have the vacuum gages. Already balanced them.

The previous owner did the work himself, but could have possibly ordered through a dealer and the dealer got the sizes wrong. But if I was going to...

So far, with the riding I've done today, the spark plugs are firing much better. No more fuel smell like I had with the 137.5's. The bike runs smoother at all RPM's and even cranks much better.
