      Well you have to figure out if you’re bogging due to drowning, or starving

      Would they cause my symptoms of bogging off idle ?

      I can usually see it ..... the arent smooth anymore— they start to get a ‘velvety’ look, and then a ‘sandpapery’ look, then onto ‘bad’

      Dave,if the carb jets are etched ? you can't see that can you ? how can you tell ? doesn't that just make the mixture more rich ?

      So you have: 1. At least one float sticking open 2. A leaky petcock, unless you left it on PRI

      The float bowls overfilled one time when left on prime after a couple of weeks too.

      If it’s been sitting with gas in the bowls, it could have eaten/etched the jets—

      i'm still having issues with the stumbling or bogging on take off , i'm thinking the ethanol fuel that i was using may have restricted the pilot jets,you did the carburetor rebuild a couple of years ago but only maybe 300 miles on the rebuild. ,i was thinking of not breaking the rack apart and just cleaning the bowls,jets and seats,wet test floats and check height of floats.

      Fer93–bigfitz hasn’t been around for awhile. Besides, it’s illegal to disseminate unauthorized copies. Go on eBay and buy an original.
