whilst i'm debating whether or not to go 16v, in the meantime my carbs need sorted. i'm running 36's atm but i can't seem to get my idle sorted...
it sits at about 2000rpm (the idle screws are actually wound off of the levers) and if you leave it for a few minutes idling, it will slowly decrease and continue decreasing until it cuts out. if you blip the throttle whilst the idle is falling, it will rise again to 2000 and stay there for a bit before it starts to decrease again. also, one of the carbs has a rather loud hiss coming off it, like an air leak, that follows with engine speed going "putt putt putt" all the time. all the gaskets and mating faces are fine though.
