Try cleaning and lubing the throttle cable to see if it helps your return issue. Or disconnect them from the bell crank at the back and see how it responds manually. If it's in your cables, an old spark plug boot fits nicely over the cables at the top and makes a reservoir for your favourite cleaner. Place a rag under the cables at the carbs and work them back and forth until they run freely with the lubricant/ cleaner all the way through. Avoid anything with brake cleaner/acetone for the sake of your paint. It could be in the throttle sleeve at the grips too.

What adjustment is in the clutch, the adjustment at the lever itself? That will change where the clutch engages, I will try to get to it tomorrow, because I don't like it so far out

Ok. Having some problems getting the idle low enough since it tends to wander. Adjust it to about 1k and it wanders down to low. But I will, adjust a little, lower the idle, readjust. Patience!

No one commented on leaning out the idle. I will experiment a little tomorrow.

You should only have between about 1/4-1/2" of play at the end of the lever.

There are three adjustments for the clutch. The adjuster screw behind the lifter cover, the lower cable adjuster and the upper cable adjuster by the lever.

The pull cable is brand new, so I shouldn't need to clean it. I will remove it to see if it comes back the way I expect. I could also be the sleeve as you mention. The Randakk video for the carb rebuild warns that if the cables are routed wrong they will bind. I will disconnect it first as you recommend

Leaning it out with the mixture screws probably won't help. I suspect it may be flooding in 1 or more of the carbs or in the intake plenum or possibly it is too lean.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

To me, it didn't look like you had the sync balanced correctly and that can cause erattic idle.

Why ain't we ridin'?

Can you tell me why you say that. The pattern on the manometer not tight enough?

Exactly. And those air bubbles have to be gotten out so the columns can give you a good reading.
