i took the carbs apart but left left them on the plenum,i took out the all the needles and float valves and cleaned them with a very thin wire,the history for the bike was the po left it uncovered and tank full of fuel for the 3 years,he lost the title and b.o.s
he left it for dead

i had the issue before it started to get colder,but not as bad,i was reading in this forum about shimming up the needle valve with the correct part numberwasher from home depot for the part i can say this did not cure this issue,so i returned it back the way it was
