finally got to take her out engine is good water pump is good all is well but i have the idle set at 2k but if i ride for like 2 miles wide open just ripping ya know, it bumps up to 3k till i choke it then all is well again is that just carbs not being synced? i know its not a air leak because it would do it all the time right?

ok forsure ill go half a turn out on the screws thanks
may even idle around 1100 rpm. that's fine just as long as it stay's running. a short stoke tipple tight crankcase which these are pulls a lot of air over the needle jet. which causes the high idle if the slides are just a tad to high.

I had the high idle even back in the day on my 440 fuji lc's when modded to run twin pipes and tm flat slide carbs. You learn to deal with it burping the choke.
