Long time lurker, first time poster.

Riding to Florida this coming Thursday through Monday. I've done almost all of the major and minor scheduled maintenance on my R100/7 these last few weeks, but I can't quite seem to get my carbs dialed in. Idle is rough, and when I come off the throttle at speed, I can feel a bit of roughness.

I'm hoping there may be someone in the DMV area I can meet up with before Thursday who can walk me through getting this dialed in correctly. In exchange, I can provide a sixer of something good and an epic ride report of my journey down the Atlantic coast (and subsequent return north up the BRP and Skyline).

I could help with that. Did you check the diaphrams in the carbs to ensure they aren't torn? I'm currently not working so any day or evening works for me.
