I think I'd look at a stuck vacuum piston.

You can remove the shelter and airfilter and look down into the carburetors. I'm willing to bet you have one or both vacuum pistons stuck.

You can either try one of the "Snake oil" treatments in the gas, or spray a little carb cleaner and WD-40 on the piston to free it up. Don't try to rotate them as you'll tear the diaphragm.

Tony.... Are you going to the bike swap meet next weekend at the MN state fairgrounds?
What is the date ???

I'm really thinking about a day trip to "The Davis Rally" in New Hampton, IA this weekend, so far thinking Sunday.

My son is in town this month, on leave from the Air Force, to get married on the 16th, so I have to choose which functions to attend.

But...I am off work for 10 more days, if you want someone to look at the possibilities with you PM me and I'll get you my address, I'm about 2 hours south of you. We could check the vacuum piston thing in about an hour, maybe ride some of the Mississippi river road afterwards.
