To check for minute cracks in the intake boots you can spray carb cleaner on them.  If the idle speed changes at all (up or down) there is crack sucking that carb cleaner through the intake.  I'd try and do this when the engine isn't TOO hot as, well your results may vary but I've always been cautious when trying this.

I've been playing with the carbs, Ended up having to turn the pilot screws out 6 turns and this thing runs like a champ. After I put the correct plugs in it and played with the pilot screws it runs great. Any Ideas on why the pilot screws needed to be turned out so much?
