Make sure that the choke is completely off. Many of those bikes had mixture enrichening curcuits and if the choke lever on the carb bank is not completely closed the bike will run very strangely. In the past I have had to rig a spring on the actuating lever to make sure it stays closed. I'm taking about the choke lever on the carbs, not the choke control on the handlebar.

Thanks longride. You may well be right, although i cleaned them in the ultrasound bath, the drilling for the pilot jet is very small and could easily be blocked. Hopefully the bath can dislodge the fuel varnish, if it can't, im not sure what else to do to clear it - im loathed to stick wire in the hole. Kwackernut.
You can use soft copper wire carefully. Works pretty good.
