1. Make sure the enricher circuit is in the "off" position (lever up, plunger down, as it is shown in your first pic). On an otherwise properly tuned bike, running with the enricher circuit in the "on" position will cause a rich condition and poor running.
2. You can use the enricher circuit to diagnose a lean condition caused by an intake leak. If the bike runs _better_ with the enricher circuit in the "on" position, you have an intake leak. You can diagnose the side with the leak since each carb has an individual enricher circuit.
Check on those and get back to us. It's very likely that you've developed an intake leak when you've disturbed a crusty old set of compliance fittings.
