If you find you can adjust to correct the lean mixture, possibly indicating a partially obstructed carb idle circuit, dosing the fuel with SeaFoam (my favorite) or some other fuel system cleaner may help dissolve the residue over a few tanks of gas. The key to that suggestion is that the cleaner will flow thru a minor restriction, doing it's job, but not a total obstruction. Easy and inexpensive enough to try, since the bike is usable anyway.

Thanks...that was gonna be my next question on fuel system cleaners. I'll try SeaFoam when the test rides start soon.
