Last August I got a 1992 Bandit 400 US version with the 32mm carbs and it was working fine idling and throughout the revs. About 2 months ago I decided it was running a bit rich as there was always some black soot on my turn signal above the exhaust exit. I took the carbs off and turned the pilot...
