I think you'd be better off with a custom American frame. Then adapt a XS11 motor into it with a chain drive conversion. You'd be like the Black Widows gang leader in Every Which Way but Loose. One...

The carbs are thoroughly cleaned. If I set the floats at 19mm it pukes out the back. If I set them at 21mm, it will not idle. I've tried turning the idle mixture screws out 1 1/2 all the way to 5...
