When you stab the throttle, it bogs, but hit the throttle a few times at that time and see if it takes off or gets worse. If it seems to kind of like it better, it may need a bigger shot of fuel. You may benefit from taking off the spacers - if you need/want the scoop height, put spacers above the carbs to raise it. Might be worth a try.
Hey 33, been waiting for your input. Have to order bigger squirters. Thinking that's what it is, more air than gas. No weight removed from the rear butterflys. Hit it, it bogs, let off and hit it again (immediately) and it hauls! I removed the carb spacers from below the carbs (as u advised in another post) and added another 1" spacer above the carb between the carbs and scoop to get the scoop into the wind.
You're right, all this talk and no advise. I feel, if you got nothing to say, then save it.
