The key to these carbs is to turn the petcock to off and run the gas out EVERY time you ride the bike. I bought mine used 6 years old with 200 miles on the bike. I had to have my mechanic go through the carbs. He reset some of the needles but I don't think he rejetted it. Anyhow, it starts and runs great now. It wouldn't hardly run when I bought it.
