my '73 850 runs pretty decent but will occasionally die when i pull up to a light. the idle just conks out unless i blip the throttle. strange thing is that when i give her the old kick in the morning, great running. but a little mild use and idling becomes dicey. im running original amal's with the pilot screws set at 1 1/4 turns out. idle is normally around 1000rpm. any advice? things to check?
