Bike's back

The bike idles fine with the petcock in any position.  it's only when you snap the throttle open that the engine tries to die.  If you ease the throttle open, the engine continues to run.

I'd check the vacuum line from the carbs to the petcock (will the bike run 
with the petcock in "Prime" position?)  I've heard of several cases where 
mechanics at dealerships failed to find a leak in the vacuum line.  Really 
makes you wonder what you're paying for..
