Took the seat in for upholtry today and the guy did it today!!!. I think they did an awsome job. Cost me 100 bucks i thought that was fair. for the detail i requested. GLad i didn't attempt this part myself as i just don't have the tools or skills for that one. Went with a straight black vinyl as i couldn't swing the brown leather and the brown vinyl i thought looked cheap. I am really pleased with outcome.

well got the damn pos running somewhat. It is again doing this crazy crap where it fires up runs 2 min on only the left cylinder right sounds like it's trying and i put the right plug on the wire while the left was running the show. sparking like a motherfucker. so that's not the problem. I've reset the timing twice now. I have had the carbs off prob 10 x i thought maybe it was an issue with the float arm but that seems to be to spec. these fucking carbs are brand new. I changed the jetting a bit. Now have 30 pilots in and 145 mains. choke does absolutely nothing and the thing will die right away if i choke it. Makes me think I am flooding the motor but the plugs aren't wet. WHy else would it work when i let it sit for about 20 min. I think about fuel starvation but I can't see why fuel is flowing free to the bowls I will try to tear down the fucking carbs again and clean out brand new carbs. IDK maybe it's the ignition shorting to the motor somewhere. Crap oh crappy. Compression is 175 on both cylinders. TOmorrow i will adjust the valves. rewire the ignition, buy new plugs, and clean/ dissemble/ressemble the carbs. VM 30s btw. Damn i need help..... any suggestions out there>>

How are you doing the static timing?

I am using my ohmeter and following my manual. I am first gapping the points, then setting the left (yellow) points to open the instant the LF aligns with the stator mark. Then I adjust the right point gap to open at the F mark. Just like the manual says. I will try getting a light and see if that is better but the ohmeter is pretty sensitive. I will try getting a light but  I am starting to highly doubt it;s the ignition. I have a strong feeling the fuel level in the float bowls may be off but i adjusted the float arms too aprox 22mm. IDK the chief character is that the right cylinder refuses to fire regularly when i can get it to start. The other symptom is that when left alone for about half hour the bike wants to fire more readily. FOr a bit i was having issue with weak spark but seemed to self resolve after I tightened the ground on the condensor. <--i had this problem before. Pretty frustrated about now any insight is appreciated.

Float level for most of the 350 carbs is 26mm, but there are a few models that have slightly different specs.

I am using mikuni vm30 carbs. Float level is between 22 and 24 per mikuni manual. I tooled around a bit this morning checked timing again spot on. Adjusted the valves right was slightly too tight. took apart the carbs again set the float height again. Got the bike to start but it was hard coming once warm left cylinder fires easily. tooled around with the coils abit. switched left cylinder to use the right coil and visa versa. engine wouldnt kick but the right would backfire. As soon as i switched em back bam left cylinder fires. I am thinking I have a faulty coil. I had suspected this and have ordered one two days ago from dcc should be here tomorrow.  Hope that solves the problem. I'll keep it updated. thanks for the input though guys.
