Down is there another screw that should come out?

Those look like Delorto's I have Bings.

I am referring to the screw adjustment on the bottom of the carb that lifts the idler pulley up or down.

The carbs do need a good cleaning and rebuild. I have the kits now it's time to venture into them.

A couple quick checks.

First is to confirm the throttle cables have some slack at idle, so they aren't effecting the idle settings.

Second is to verify it's not the advance timing unit, which can respond poorly due to dried up grease, etc.
An easy check is to shut the engine down and then turn the key to 'on' again before the engine fully dies, which encourages the atu to close at the very low rpm.
If the idle becomes more normal after the cycle then cleaning the atu may resolve the issue.

They are in fact Bings, just the wrong ones. I wasn't paying attention.

Edit. I nuked the post as it was irrelevant.

Carb cleaner is nasty stuff, don't forget your eye protection.!!
The nooks and crannies in the carb will divert the jet right back at you.
That is if you're going to use the spray can method.

Plenty of slack at idle. They are fully down while resting on the idle screw stop.

I will have to check on the timing unit venturing into something I've know so little about. However I cna say I've learned a lot and have met some great people in this 4 month journey.

So it's been a long while since I've posted in my thread (7 months). Guess I've been having too good of time riding rather than posting.

The bike runs pretty good although it is not charging. The bike has a completely new charging system.

Odyssey Battery
The rest came from Motorrad Elektrik
Voltage Regulator
Generator Light Auxillary Circuit
Rotor and Brushes
Omega Diode Board
Stator

and it's still not charging...kind of frustrating. Gonna take it to my buddies house who is good with bike electrics to see wth is going on.

I love my toaster tan front brace along with the clipons. I also, aquired some Ohlin's BM141 shocks and Raask rearsets. The rearsets took a little getting used to, but now I am really starting to like them.

Being in an aggressive riding position with the new suspension components I've realized how crappy the front end is. So some new racetech front springs will be on order shortly. I also, am looking to do a dual disc setup on the front. I have an extra disc and a caliper. Problem is the extra caliper I have I know came from the left hand side. Is the left caliper the same as the right, are they interchangeable? If they are, the hardest part will be sourcing the lower right side fork stanchion with the brake mount. Anyone know of a good source for that lower fork leg. I scour ebay all the time and haven't had any luck.

So for now a picture my buddy took right before I put on the rearsets and Ohlins.

The caliper is interchangeable left to right, but the hard brake line is not, and BMW isn't offering them anymore.
I made my own with some bundyflex from NAPA.
I have a set of black sliders I would part with.
PM me.

I'll post a pick of the hard brake lines later, I had to do both of them in the same length of bundy-flex so they would look the same.
The size you need is 10x1.00.

Here's the pics of the home made brake lines.
A little short, but I will make my own custom brackets at some point before the bike is completed.
These are about 4 or 5 bucks each at the auto parts store.
