Is your idle speed ok ?

Reason I ask is I eleminated carb farts once I upped idle slightly .A lot of bikes Imo sound very low , I expect it's to try and get the "potatoe,potatoe" sound thing more apparent ..

Not sure what my idle is set at but its not high but if I drop it say 100rpm or so it will fart

My idle mix is spot on btw...

When is the last time you changed your manifold seals? That's an often overlooked source of carb cough.
