    Another carb problem

    This is a 98 xl1200 non pv
    Mods on the ski are premix and primer kit
    The rear cylinder was honed oversize
    The problem with this ski is at idle the the gas is dripping through the venturi. I tried all the spring sizes even 115 gram and is still dripping. I am thinking the return may be clogged? This ski is getting me crazy, I don,t know what else should I do. Now something happened and the engine got stuck, is not spinning anymore, got to take it apart. But anyway if somebody knows something about the carbs. Please any help is appreciated. Thank you
