when you pull the top of airbox and filter take a look straight down through the carbs to the top of the valves. If the float is stuck on one of the carbs fuel will pool ontop of the valves and get horrible mpg. I fixed this issue by spraying lubricant on the float and jiggling it for a while. And obviously while you are in there spray out the jets with carb cleaner. Another possible issue are the rubber diaphragms that just go bad over time, 80 bucks a pop but if the ones in place are 8 years old. Carb cleaner kills these so clean before install
