im trying to get my 71 up and running
sat for a few years.

the gearbox is very tight and hard to find neutral. is that normal on a motor that sat? (ive never had it and all my other bikes have sat)
my friend has a 350 that sat and it feels the same way[?]

i cleaned out the carbs and she idles great and off idles is fine but at 6k it falls on its face. sometimes it will power through but most times it will not.
in 5th at 50mph it feels like its cutting/hunting
they are stock carbs with stock airboxes.
fresh fuel
good plugs

im going to try and time it and clean the carbs again and see if that helps
was wondering if anyone had run into this or had a trick
thanks

dont know anything about the needles, but my '72 wouldnt rev past 5 or 6k when i got it because it was only firing on one cylinder. set point gap and make sure you are getting fire to the plugs.
