1.) make sure you idle speed is set at 950-1000 RPM...no guessing...get a tach and make sure
2.) Check for vacuum vacuum leaks....like the rubber cap on the front cylinder synch port
3.) If all of that is set, if there is still an issue, it is most likely crap stuck in the pilot jets. Remove the carbs and clean them including the side holes.
4.) If you don't know where or what these things are, get a shop manual and start learning......or do it the easy way and take it to somebody that knows the score and save all the pain and heartache of trying to learn.
5.) If you want to learn, everything you need to know is right here
....... start reading every word and follow every link. It would also be a VERY good idea to start with the "New Owner" section....
