well, the first time was when i first got the bike last summer. It had been sitting in a garage for ten years, i figured i better at least inspect and clean. they looked pretty damn good considering. the second time was was because the bowl gasket started leaking i was trying to do it on the cheap so i didn't buy any new gaskets.....at my age i should know better. figured i should get 2 overhaul kits and bought 2 jet kits from carbjetkits.com ,i think that was the name ! it improved the performance when cold .. but i still have the poor performance when warm......boom, like a light switch!
