Intermittent idle issue w/ stock carbs.. sometimes goes back to idle, sometimes stays around 3000 rpms.. local shop said the advance may be sticking.. any idea on where to start?

the shop guy thought your bike has a mechanical
advance mechanism, with rotating weights and stuff,
but that isn't true, advance is done for each cylinder
individually, and in an electronically manner, done
by the kokusan ignition boxes.

i doubt that they both stuck at the same time,
not sure if they can stick at all, suppose you
should check either your carbs rubber connections
to their manifolds, or the carbs themselves.

cheers.

high idle

There are two cables running from the throttle grip that go to your carbs. One advances, and one closes. I would say the cable that closes the carburetors may need adjusting.

I'm running pod filters and it does run lean at higher rpms.. I have a stage 2 jet kit coming so maybe a good cleaning and jetting will help..

I've checked the cables and the throttle returns fine.. wierd thing is that when i come to a stop, if i gear down into first gear and brake to lug the motor down below 3000 rpms sometimes makes the idle normal. Other times you can blip the throttle a few times and it will go ahead and idle down.
