The fella that ported your motor should be able to get you in the ball park with jetting unless you are using a carb he's not familiar with, ask him what slide, pilots, needle, needle jet and mains he uses.
I'm offering suggestions based on you saying the bike has no go off the line but then won't rev past 4k?

I like to start tuning with the idle circuit and work up. Who cares about the main, it doesn't effect idle but pilot and needle will bleed into the main. Get the bike sorted to 1/2 throttle then work on the mains.

It's bad when you have to buy 3 carbs instead of two ;) ;) ;)

And now he tells me that.  I have a set of three pristine TM32 flat slides that came with a GT750 project.  All I need to do is to work out what I'm going to do with them.  Maybe sell them to an H1 or 400 triple owner. ;-)

I'm sure you'd get a taker! I opted for PWK's just because I already have all the brass I need.
I was looking at the TM's but I feared they would have an interference with the case because of my reeds.

I'm a really big fan of the Pwk series. I would use them on 4 strokes if I could.

I thought the PJ series were for the four strokes?  I'm looking for a nice 38 PWK for my YZ250 project.

PJ's were standard issue on all the Honda CR's at one point.
Nice carb but no idle slide adjustment like the PWK's
A word of the wise if anyone is planning to use them on a multi cylinder bike though.
I bought 3 used ones and probably wouldn't again.
I had a colder cylinder temp on one and it would follow with the carb if I changed them around...
My theory is with a fixed needle jet, plus spending their previous life in dust, I believe that needle jet was worn slightly causing that condition.
Sorry for the high Jack John...

No problem!  I got nothing going on right now anyway, no time to work on the bike ;)

I got a little time to spend on the bike today ;)  I disconnected the overflow tubes that go from the carb to the catch can as suggested by Mobius, seems a little better.  I only had time to ride up and down my street a couple of times (2nd gear) but it did seem to be improved.

Here is a short vid this time without all the smoke ;)  Still getting a bit of smoke from the right side though.

It seems to be hanging on to the rpm when you let off the throttle... an Air leak or too lean maybe?
