Mine do too. Still managed to knock one off once. Luckily for me it fell down by the alternator and I was able to fish it out!

Or they did the last time you saw the carbs... Were you there for the vacuum sync?

Sure wasn't. They are new also because the old ones where dry rotted and I knew they cause problem... like this.

The caps are all back with the clips. I will recheck for vac leaks either this afternoon or tomorrow. The carbs haven't been apart (other than number 3 because I need to reseat the bowl gasket) since Arsenic cleaned them. I think vacuum leak here makes much more sense. Throttle response is crisp like it should be with the exception of coming down from high rpms.

Got everything finished. FINALLY! Got some O-rings for the engine side of the intake boots to seal up any possible vacuum leaks and that seems to have done the trick (I haven't gotten it up to highway speeds or had it running for longer than 30mins yet). Buttoned it all back up in preparation for a test ride, rolled it down the driveway, put it in gear, let out the clutch lever and....NOTHING. It was like being in neutral. Figured I must've messed with the clutch cable at some point and forgot to mark it so that I would adjust it when I was done.

Adjusted the clutch cable and everything works. I finally have the bike in rideable condition. It has only been 4 months since I started, but hey I really only have a couple weekends of actual work into it. Getting it inspected today so that I can use it as my DD agian. Thanks to everyone who helped me out.

I live in a city with little or no scenic places to take photos. Also, pretty much every road here is straight and flat. It is also not a very pretty bike ATM. I can still get a pic if you really want it, but I am more concerned with function than looks.
