I have a used, but good set of intake boots if you need them. Cheap!

Unless someone has modded the airbox or something unusual, your 
pilot jets are probably dirty. Like I said before, take them out and 
clean them with solvent and blow compressed air through them. There are 
several holes on the sides of the pilot jets as well as the hole that 
goes through the center. They all need to be clean. Also, take the pilot 
screws out (make sure you don't loose the spring or the little rubber 
washer) and clean that orifice with solvent and compressed air as well. 
With a stock airbox and exhaust and 35 pilot jets, you should be between 
2 and 3 turns out from fully seated on the pilot screws.

It's also still possible that you might have a couple cracked intake 
boots (between the carbs and the head) that are allowing extra air into 
the mix. By opening up the pilot screws, you are having to richen up the 
idle circuitry. Means it was running lean before. If the intake boots 
look old and cracked, replace them.

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? Ben
