    Pkay,
    If you’re using old jets, make sure they haven’t been drilled out. Sometimes it’s cheaper just to buy some new ones.
    Also, are the carbs CV’s?

    I used the following links to tune mine
    https://www.mikunioz.com/tuning-tips...v=6cc98ba2045f
    http://www.factorypro.com/tech/tech_...m_engines.html

    The Factory Pro guide (from memory) is the one that made more sense to me.
    It boils down to testing the selected rev range cold and then hot, taking note of the changes and adjusting that jet/ needle etc. accordingly.
    Later on I had the chance to put a bung in and check it with an AFR meter. It was within 1 size o; the pilot jet and the rest were spot on.
    If they’re mechanical then I have no advice.

    Cheers

    I haven't seen that Factory Pro one before Ben, good link! Mind you, step 1 on a Kat around here could get interesting

    the mikuni oz link does not relate to CV carbs.
    the factory pro link is on the money.

    Had another thought dawn on me this morning given my history of the wee beastie... make sure your ignition/electrical system is up to scratch too! Things like weak spark due to dodgy spark plug caps or low voltage will affect fueling, as will dodgy spark plugs etc. Just in case it hadn't occurred to you

    Preservation before restoration - they are only original once
