Just for reference that video was filmed in roughly 35 degree weather after the bike had a chance to warm up in my garage and then being driven around for 10-15 minutes. For what it's worth, I'm in Denver at roughly 5200 feet above sea level.
I'm not positive on the mileage - odometer reads 1,092 km but I was told the previous owner swapped in a new speedo after the old one broke. The bike is claimed to have a total of 7K km, but again I can't be sure, which is why I'm just going over everything.
Just based on the overall condition of the bike, I would say it's a lower mileage unit. Doesn't seem like it's been ridden much for the past 10 years.
I will triple check all the throttle cables and then read up on balancing the carbs. I feel like it's now very close to running well, but just need the idle to return a little faster so I can shift through the gears without grinding or waiting so long for the revs to drop that the bike starts to stall.

Just to be clear a full turn = the mixture screw completing a full rotation like if a clock moved 24 hours. Correct?
