"One thing I just thought of was the air box has an extra box off it that I removed and plugged off from the air filter box, I hope that didn't do it to me."That piece was for noise reduction and nothing more. Removing it causes no problem and the opening should be left open for better air flow with an after market ex system. (Air is still filtered.)
Pull the carbs, float bowls, pilot jets and get a Factory Pro Kit or go back to stock and shim needles, open idle screws and sync after you have jet sprayed all passages clean.Gas now days will not stay fresh very long unless treated.I wouldn't mind getting my hands on a GPZ and working on it.I'm in Evansville, IN. and would be willing to get your bike up and running if you could haul and leave it with me for a while.Good luck and I hope all works out for you.Don.

> It has been a while since I have posted anything, but I haven't ridden in almost 2 years. My 96 has been languishing in a sad state for too long. I have had carb problems, and that has never been a strong point for me in mechanical devices.
> I replaced the springs in the carbs to make sure I had the stock ones after a stage 1 dynojet install didn't work like I had hoped. I had initially gotten it back together, but after a quick ride, it got to where it would not idle without the choke on again.
> I am tired of looking at it in the garage and not riding it so I am going to make a big effort to get it sorted out.
> A while back someone else had a similar issue with not being able to get an idle without the choke, and I wondered if they had found a solution over since they posted.
> It is finally getting up to 40 F in the evenings and up to the seventies on occasion, so the rubber boots should do pretty good coming on and off.

> Another thing, the guy who had the same problem was asking about the vacuum valve differences. Does anyone know which goes inboard vs outboard?
