Re: Pilot screw adjustment
Have you had the tops of the carbs? If one of your slides, or needles is being held up, this would cause a rich condition. If someone had it apart and was not careful about getting the needle into the needle jet, this could be the cause of the problem. Many years ago, I loaned a needle to a friend and it came back bent. Stranger things have been known to happen.
Take a paper towel, fold it like a handkerchief, and place it behind each of the exhaust outlets while you rev the bike up. If you see black soot, that is unburned gas. If it is only on one side, that side is the source of you fuel consumption. If it shows up on both, both sides are rich.
