have a 700xc was startin right up first pull every time. then all of a sudden now it doesnt seem to want to start will have to give it half to full throttle to get it to start and then only after about 5 pulls and it is idling around 900 when it was idlin around 1500.... cleaned and adjusted carbs and still dont seem to want to start?

did you check plugs i have 650 efi did that before was because one of the plugs was fouled

both plugs have spark and it seems to be getting fuel cause after a few pulls plugs are wet... compression is 105 in both cylinders. fuel filter is full of gas.

try pulling plugs out and pull over a couple of times clean plugs or replace. may be flooding out.also compression is getting a little low may need some rings

i think it is flooding out. but cant figure out y it is.

Check your choke plungers to make sure they adjusted right . Those things are a bear when they aren't adjusted right . Do you have crank case drain plugs ? If so drain them also . Just my 2 cents .

cleaned carbs and readjusted carbs, drained crankcase, put a pair of new plugs in and she fired right up. hopefully cured will know more after she sits for a day or 2 and see if she still starts right up..........thanks for the suggestions and 2 cents worth.

if you have a fuel shut off you may want to shut it off after every ride may be filling up case while sitting

I do this every time on my XCR440, too lazy to pull the carbs apart, and it works with no issues.
