If I suspect a burnt valve, I would just perform a leakdown test with an actual leakdown tester, which I own. Still haven't adjusted the valve, my antique truck blew a coolant line and then my sewer broke. I refuse to pay anyone to do anything, so I had to fix myself. Will be adjusting valves next week and retesting.

History of the bike is that it hates idle. PO was an idiot, carbs were literally put together with teflon tape around the main jets. My theory is that the bike sat up for a looooong time before I got ahold of it.
