    How to tune them. I don't know what's what on the carbs. Is there a high and low needle? Idle?

    There is only a low needle. Everything else is done through jet changes. It shouldn't require much tuning though......

    That's good news I guess. lol. Which one on the carb is the low needle? I don't want to start turning stuff and screw something up.

    I think it's running rich. Someone suggested checking the return orifice on the center carb. Again, I'm lost on what that is/where it is.

    Have the carbs already been disassembled, internally cleaned and rebuilt with OEM parts?

    That was completed a year ago by a local mechanic. It's worked fine until the other day when I took it out.

    Well, it's drinking gas. As previously stated, we rode the other day and the virage i used 1/4 tank of fuel and the genesis used 3/4. Both were ridden at the same time and the same amount of time. The virage carried 60 more pounds too.
