The bike is running today! I was able to take it down the street a bit. The carb was very dirty, and still needs to be cleaned a bit more. The idle air screw was pretty dirty, bad enough were it was...

I'm happy it wasn't the valves overheating. The carbs haven't been too bad without the filter, the screen in the tank must be doing a decent job. I removed the vacuum petcock as the first step and...
