PhatRJ, I'll second what Crazyron said.
Time to do some house work. The pilot
circuit on these carbs, is just to small to ignore. That's the only reason I can see, as to why they clog up so easily. That, and the fuel formulations these days.
Pull the bowl on the carb
(if this is the first time, pull the carb first, and replace the phillips head bowl screws with allen head), and blast out the jets and passageways between them, and the carb throat(all in the bottom half of the carb), and start running Seafoam or Startron in your fuel on a regular or every other tank basis. Don't just stop with the Seafoam when the problem goes away....it's regular maintenance.
Some have sprayed the Seafoam(Deep Creep??)(or carb cleaner) into the carb throat and let it set overnight, in addition to adding four ounces of Seafoam to a tank of fresh gas and had it clear up after a hard ride.
That bit of down time with the bike sitting while painting your bi....excuse me, while your sweetie painted your bike
, probably did you in.
