well this weekend I actually had time to work on the CL350 today, and I replaced the battery, and I got it to run. I spent alot of time dealing with other issues, such as carb problems, and clutch problems which still isn't fixed. (see other thread) and I actually got to ride it for a short time. I am still having carb issues, and it seems to be running real rich. I rebuilt the carbs a while ago to fix leaky bowls. the float was set way too low. so the gas overflowed the bowl before it was shut off. I replaced all of the jets and needles with new ones, (same OEM sizes though) now I don't know what to do next. Fuel mixture screw? adjust it? it is real rich and the motor bogs down when I accelerate, also it doesn't want to run if I open the choke. any diagnosis help would be great. thanx alot, and I am glad that I at least got to run it, and ride it.

just ride it.

Hopefully you used honda needles when you replaced them, if you used keyster or any other brand who knows what size they actually are. Have the carbs synched to get the fuel mixture screw setup right and try adjusting the needle height.
