Switch to size 15 pilots.

Play with the mixture until the plugs are brown all over if you understand what to do or read from the exhaust pipes asΒ  well as heat coming out of the pipes to . You sound like you know the gist of this.

Also the stock setting for main jets is 87.5 x 2 usually for aquilasΒ  or rarely 90 front 87.5 rear (silly setup but thats OEM sometimes)

Best way is 90 front and 92.5 rear.

The bike will start on the button without twisting throttle or turning choke on in this summer heat. Shooting to 1500 rpm cold then 1800 hot 10mins later (1800 hot is ideal).Β  The mixture and pilot size is good as well good electrics (coils, caps , plugs crucial but common things to wane starting) as well as good clearances really matter for easy starts.

This is assumed intake system is complete (airbox sitting on the carb) (secondary airbox on the right of the frame) these 2 boxes matter or the CV carb will always run strange it was made sure intake system stays OEM.

Assumed also orings under the manifolds arent 10yrs old , cracking etc allowing air under the manifolds but also leaking vacuum pressure to run the carbs right

Hope this info helps
