Also you want to make sure that the slides are propper open so that the motor is getting all the air it needs. Learned this on a previous thread.

Grav.
how do you do that? aren't they vacumme actuated? should i have the trhottle wide open to let more air in?

or do you take the airbox off and stick your fingers in the carbs?
