I am having a problem that's not so strange. When I whack open the throttle just below the powerband, the bike coughs slightly, and then comes on to the power. Normally, I would think that my needles are one notch too rich. But I heard mentioned that with these kind of carbs, you can't whack the throttle open like that. Any ideas?

Its all relative to what size motor and what size carbs. I have a 1127 with 36mm RS's There is pretty much no bog. But if you have 38 or even 40's then you will notice them hesitate at WOT. Learn to roll.

Being the carbs are CV carbs, whacking the throttle on any type of CV at any rpm shoudnt cause bogging. Id go with your first thought

You're right, Slowkat! I just dug into them, and sure enough, diaghrams. I guess I was mistaken in thinking that, on flat-slide carbs, the cable moves the slides directly. Thanks for cluing me in. Anyway, I dropped the needles one notch, and that hiccup cleared right up.
