Well, I went and bought some carb cleaner, wd-40 (didn't use) and seafoam. Used the carb cleaner, used the seafoam, still no help. Decided to spray carb cleaner into the air intake while it was running, I have no idea why, but I did lol. When I did, it idled down, I figured because it was being flooded or such. Got me thinking maybe the A/F was off. So, I adjusted the Pilot screw on both carbs. First, I screwed both out quite a bit, higher idle. Then, screwed them both all the way in, it wouldn't start (without some throttle help). So, I went by half turns on each until I got to 2 turns out, still wouldn't start (without throttle help). Then I remembered that I had adjusted the idle knob all the way down, so, while I had it started and manually giving it a little throttle to keep it running, I adjusted the idle back until it ran on it's own.
It now sounds and rides great! I'm not sure if the Pilot screws on the carb somehow moved because of vibration, if there was something gummed up on them and turning them loosened it, or if it just needed all adjusted but it's running good now. Will see how it's doing in the morning. I took it for a ride also and had no issues what-so-ever. Thanks for the input!
