They are not cheap and are you sure they are worn and all that?

If you do need to replace them this is about the best price you will find:
Honda, ATV Parts, Scooter Parts, Motorcycle Parts,CRF,CR,MX Parts, Goldwing parts

Even so they are $75 each.....

i am pretty sure they are worn, they have grooves worn in the wings were it slides. i think they are the issue but i just cleaned them and i still have a rattle during acceleration. i did the pair blank off and seams to work pretty good and richened up the main jet one groove. the rattle does not sound catastrophic but it annoys the hell out of me.
i also tried to sync the carbs up but the gauges i have were very jumpy and could not get a solid number. i am at a loss, i just might sell it, i dont know what to do. never fails i always get something that has problems.

I saw a complete set of carbs sell for around $50 on ebay a few weeks ago. That may be your cheapest option.

Give me a call tomorrow. I will come over and help ya. I'll bring over my vacuum gauges and we will get her synced. Also I found the fitting that goes on the front cyl head.

Also when we met up you mentioned swapping slip ons, you still interested?
