carb problem?

Somebody mentioned the other day buying some small freeze plugs and pressing them into the holes of the reed valves. Probably the easiest route. On mine, some other owner tapped the holes and screwed in some pipe plugs along with some thread sealer. Looks crappy, works fine. I'd opt for the freeze plugs.

Bye-bye box. wow, what a pain and poor design. and the
reed valves, really are not like a PVC? I know we just talked about this but whats a good wat to plug it?

So, I yank the suckers off, and found the pilots at 3 turns,
instead of 2 to 2.5 turn, no biggy. Idles great now. The slides
made different sounds from one another and could be smoother.
Diaphrams intact and everything basically very clean.
Still, any acceleration and she bogs to a stall.

So, I'm considering taking the known good carbs off of
bike 1, and test bike 2 even though, the test will not have
the air box and using the muzzy as opposed to the stock
one bike 1. 

I'm considering welding a handle to the darn tank at this point!
Think I should empty the tank first. J/K
