Hi guys, so for past months i had couple of more issues with bike, i end up rebuilding carbs, front forks, exchanging spark plugs, some wires, jets, seals, orings and recently carb intake rubbers as well and i did some painting as well. It was a bloody mess, yesterday i manage to run it for first time after rebuild and it start and runs quite alright, carbs was balanced on desk. I'm gonna ride it/test it on weekend.
I was never work on bike before, and i found it really satisfying.

Yup, modified clip-on's for some bmw, top yoke was blasted and repainted, nut polished, nut cover made from one used for furnitures, ignition switch cleaned, letters repainted, all wiring and cables replaced. New brake fluid reservoir. All bolts replaced or reconditioned. Everything on budget.

Bike is running great so far, now it's time to put it back together.
The only thing i notice is idle rpm, after warm up it's stay around 1.5k rpm, till i touch the throttle, then it won't drop down below 2k.
