It would be necessary to check if needle jet is the right size in offending carbs, a guy on triplesonline found them being off in new Premiers.

I set the new carbs .06 below the rim. Unfortunately cant use the old carbs as the had a bend in the barrels and the slides stuck hence the new ones.
Hey baddonut,
First I see you're new to the forum so welcome aboard! Secondly, you are welcome to come by anytime you're up this way. Always like seeing another Triumph owner. I'll send you a private message with my ph#.

Good to see you bought a new HD! The Fatbob looks like a nice bike. Your Triumph will feel like a little toy after riding that!

Look forward to hearing from you and maybe we can go for a ride together some day but looks like rain on Thursday. Good luck on gettin' the Triumph running and hope lowering the floats is the ticket!!!

Hi Adam M
thanks for the reply. That was one of the problems. 200 instead 190s that original carbs had for mains but the needle jets were ok 106. This was no fault of Amal to be fair. I ordered originally direct from AMAL but the right was out of stock so changed the order to Lowbrow customs who had both. Did not check the jetting and was too excited fitting them to check again and carry out due diligence after unwrapping the babies!! Another lesson learned!
