Mikuni carbs on Honda CL350
I know this subject has been beat to death but I need help with 30mm Mikuni carbs on my cl350. I know basically how the jetting should be done. Short history: got the carbs jetted like this: needle jet 159P5, jet needle 6F5 clip in center slot, slide 2.5, main jet 135, secondary jet 27.5, air jet 2.0. Bike is stock bore, electronic ign, cl pipes with shorty open mufflers, pod filters. When I put the carbs on, the bike would not run on main jet. Jetted up in steps to 180 mains and now is a little rich on top end but running pretty well, however it is missing and running lousy right off idle to about 1/3 throttle. I have raised the needle and changed the secondary jets in steps all the way up to 40's and still runs lousy (cutting out and spitting). I don't know what else to do except changing the needle jet and needle, but I don't have cubic dollars to throw at this project and would appreciate any advice.
