Running smooth now        

Just wanted to give an update. The bike is running smooth as butter now. So after looking into how the carb actually works and a post above saying the slides had nothing to do with starting or idle. In the past I just soaked the carbs and aired them out and BAM! good to go, but not this time. They were clogged good and a vac leak at the boots between the carbs and head. The boots were compressed as the clamps were bottomed out metal to metal and still weren't tight enough. I put one clamp on the boots at a time and after each the bike ran better and better until it was idling and revving right. Took it for a ride and HAPPY DAYS!! Thanks for the responses and tips. I really do appreciate it.
