Took the carbs back off again. Didn't check the float level or try to bench sync the carbs the first time I had them apart.
I adjusted the carbs a little bit and it runs much more smoothly at slow speed and pulls better higher into the rpm range. Still might benefit from a true carb sync.
At this point I think I'm about done with the basics except for changing the tires. Mine are at least 11 years old. Bought Shinko 230 Tourmasters to put on. Just have to figure out how to get it done.
Progress toward having a bike I can ride on a daily basis is being made!
