If everything else is as it should be, then with the bike nice and warm, slowly turn the mixture screws in or out seeking the smoothest and fastest idle. Sometimes they do run best when they pop on decel. Too rich an idle mixture makes the transition muddy and flat, too lean can make it rough or notchy.
True, assuming the jets are the correct sizes... still need to verify that for this R80G/S within 100 slugs.... don't know about the carbs, heads and air filter yet...
