Yea, Im thinking MAYBE NOT.  lol   ::)

Things went rich, really rich on the carbs.  I've had to turn the idle mixture screws way out to lean it up.  I'm going to switch to the iridium plugs to see if I can get better burn.

:-\

turning screws "out" will make her richer.

If its only one carb thats rich it could be a torn diaphragm.

If you open them up...please post a pic of the diaphragms.

Well, that confuses me.  The manual say turn out if its too rich.  Opening the screw is letting  air in right?  It's what I have to do to get it to run right and not end up with carbon fouled plugs.

On the 360s is a fuel screw, not an air screw.  Out is rich.

If you are looking at a clymer manual I will personally kick your ass!!!

That needle adjuster is metering atomized fuel through the pilot circuit,  If its rich you need to screw it in.  Restricting the flow of atomized fuel.

Next if you unscrew it all the way and pull it out.  No liquid fuel will spill out.  Because, liquid fuel should never reach that point.

When the throttle butterfly is closed and the bike is at idle.  Fuel from the bowl enters main primary then goes sideways into the pilot jet (hidden under screw) then is atomized and is pulled from the pilot circuit into the idle circuit with vacuum.  When the throttle is cracked and the butterfly opens the atomized fuel then changes directions from the idle circuit back to the pilot circuit.

Also check for a stuck slide, if you find one is sticking clean it up and just add a cap of marvel mystery to the gas tank.

make sure the vents in the slides are even, and towards the filter side.  It is possible for the slides to work around and get out of whack in the diaphragms.

Because I'm a glutton, I've decided to try to copy my seat out of sheet metal.  No equipment- just planishing hammers, a football dolly, a carved log, an anvil, and my trusty MIG.  I made a pattern from the fiberglass jawn, shaped the pieces with the planishing hammers and started sewing the pieces together with the MIG...
