He used Chem Dip in his ultrasonic cleaner. I would have run it continuously for at least 45 minutes.

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

if the idle mix and idle stop are set to the repair manual's recommendation for pre-tuning warm-up,

try with the air filter off and as you turn down the enricher till it starts to stutter , plug the air intake from the filter with something air-tight. if it picks back up you probably have an air leak, if it chokes and dies you probably don't have an air leak.

lol didnt see page 5... i disassembled them last night, im gonna soak them 24 hrs each in the remaining chemdip. also i didnt want to run the cleaner continuously for 45 minutes because it heats up really quickly and i didnt want a hot pot of flammable cleaner lol. will get back with results in two days

Chem Dip in my ultrasonic cleaner will get warm, produce visible vapor, and still not ignite. Mine begins to get hot enough to produce vapor around the 45 minutes to an hour mark. I've run it for an hour and a half with no problems (yet). If the ultrasonic cleaner has a heater function, don't use it with Chem Dip. The sonification process will warm the solution without the heater.

Yea so were still running the same after cleaning the carbs again. im thinking its worn needles or jets at this point, all the rubber diaphragms look ok. i dont know what else could be causing this with my general knowledge of carbs.

so i found the jets for my situation, that would make the bike run better as it would compensate for the exhaust but do you think it will fix the issues with the choke? im thinking thats a separate issue that still needs to be addressed... im not really sure what there is to it as theres only 3 parts (brass plunger, spring, rubber cap). also what should i do so i can screw the jet out of the main jet... theyre both completely stuck in

On removing the jet, apply some penetrating fluid (Liquid Wrench outperforms PB Blaster), let sit overnight, and use a hand impact driver to remove the jet from the tube.

replaced the jets, now were running good. can take out the choke all the way... the slow jet was plugged. idling a little high and a little rich but were close enough to call it a night. thank you all for your suggestions. I will be back in the future with more questions
