    Get some rubber grease and check the inlets and rubbers for cracks, when you have them off i see no reason for new clamps?
    You can temp repair clacked inlets with Silicon but it will not last

    Just saw this. That is a huge jump in jet size. How has it all ended up?

    FYI - tipping in more fuel will not make more power, unless it is actually running lean before. Even then you need to achieve the correct fuel ratio to make power. Carbs on those 4 cylinder bikes cause motorcycle mechanics to have nightmares which is why they sometimes won't touch them. A newer bike shouldn't be a problem.
    The isse sounded like not enough fuel, or lean due to a leak. Stock is best I would suggest. It's a long slippery slope if you start playing with things.
