    They definitely look better than what just came out of the Honda Pacific Coast.

    I think both are close. If this were my BS34s then closing the mixture screw 1/8 turn on the Right and 1/4 to 3/8 turn on the Left would probably bring them right. But my concern is that leak on the Right as it is an unknown. A pitty that there is not simple fix for the leaking bush.

    If you are stuck with the leak due to carburetor design then assume it is linear over the rev range and leave the Right set as it is now. Concentrate on the left and see if decreasing the mixture screw or pilot jet solves the issue.

    I hope you get there soon.

    New Year, New Fun...
    Finally got my head out of my @$$ and double-checked the fundamentals. (although I think float height is off - high for the right side, but there's been some issues with crud in that needle and I don't wanna talk about it right now)
    Upped the Main jet to a #150 (from 145), still haven't found the 'too rich' spot, but I think it's close, might step back to a #148 once the needles are good)
    Dropped the pilot down to #40, cleaned up an 1/8th throttle *blump a little bit, need to get #38 and #36 for checking.
    Needles: JJG ran the happiest, although now I need to order a JLG because I can't set it low enough. Might also grab a JLF. J-taper has always seemed like the happiest at the bottom of a J-length, or middle of an L-length.

    It's getting closer, and my combination heads/cams/et.c is WAY off the map compared to what y'all is doing.
