Thank you to all that helped!

I was having all kinds of problems with my carbs on my '79 CX500C from running rough to only one cylinder firing. I bought Larry's book (which I have read through at least 10 times) and an ultrasonic cleaner (Chicago Brand at Harbor Freight). I stripped down both carbs as far as I could and cleaned them for three 480 second sessions. I am running pods and headers only, so I re-jetted to 90/120, put in new carb gaskets, rubber plugs and cut off valves. I started her up and she ran absolutely wonderful!!!!!! No hiccups and no stutters. I have alot to do on this bike but it is a very good start.

Thank you for all your support and suggestions.
