For some reason as of late my GL500 is not idling on the left cylinder just the right, pull the left plug wire and nothing pull the right and it dies. It seems to come back past idle though. I also pulled the airfilter and blasted some carb cleaner down it with it running and the RPM's would actually pick up and it was idling better after that. It sounds to me like the idle jet is plugged but thought I would throw it out here to see if there was anything else that might cause the problem, I did check and clean both spark plugs as well.

well Ohm,i think you have answered your own question.

as we dont have the ability to adjust both carbs idle individually.your problem lies internally within a carb
