    Well then it sounds to me that fuel isn't getting to #4 carb. The carb lets the starter fluid go by, right? Can you hook up a secondary fuel source to carb #4?

    If there is fuel in the bowl, and it is not getting into the airflow in the carb. The problem is between these points.

    Sounds like a blocked passage to me.

    Yup!

    It was a blocked slow jet. I thought I cleaned that passage and put in a new jet. Turns out I did the number one carb twice...

    Just a matter of buttoning everything back up and the bike is ready to go and firing on all cylinders!

    Took a test ride today and everything went pretty well. Seems that the power comes on pretty high in the rev right about 5,000 6,000 anybody ridden one of these before and know if thats fairly normal?

    Yes, that's about normal. They never did make a whole lot of power and you did need to wring the motor out pretty good to get it.

    What did you end up doing regarding airbox/air filter ?

    I used UNI foam pods. Seem to work fairly well. Went up to a #98 main jet.
