But while you are turning motor over, they both suck the same...perfectly normal...
Let me explain....
If the motor stops with a valve open on the cylinder that you have your hand over...all the suction is going to escape out of the valves....whether it is intake or exhaust...doesn't matter, still not a sealed cylinder....
Does that make sense?

Yeah...I knew you had an airleak somewhere...good job buddy....now......how is it running between just off idle to half throttle?
And how is it running between 3/4 throttle and wide open....two answers.....

Hello??
Ok Micah...I got to thinking....
Think about this....your airbox is mounted to your frame and so is your motor....check your motor mounts....make sure your motor is not drooping....because if your motor mount holes are wallered out, and the motor is falling down towards the ground, and your airbox and carbs are mounted on the topside of the frame, it would pull the carbs right out of those rubber boots...just food for thought...
And you can look under your airbOx from the right side of the bike wirh your flashlight and see if the carbs are sealed up tight against the bottom of the airbOx....if it's not you will be able to see those brass tubes of the carbs shining out under there...

Sorry....I have been having trouble signing in....Anyway it idled and starts up great....In between idle and 1/4 throttle it runs great....Anywhere after that it for to hell....Fall. Flat on its face....Unless I take the airbox lid off....Then it is way better.....So i guess I failed on the snorkel job...OK...I will look at the airbox....

Ok buddy....I want you to try one thing for me....
I want you to go for a little ride and get going mid throttle where your bike is running good, then get your hands ready....right one on the throttle and your left thumb on the choke lever....
Then as you pin the throttle wide open, I want you to slide the choke lever on at the same time...
Then give me some feedback...
Because right now, we don't know if your bike is falling on its face because of lack of air, or lack of fuel....
Do this with Airbox lid on, and everything buttoned up....
When you open that choke circuit you are letting more fuel get thru the carbs...

I want to do all tests from this point on with lid on and everything in place...the key to this is to only change one thing at a time until we start changing to the better...
No you didn't do a bad job on the snorkel...this is just part of it....you are doing great....
Starts fine? Don't have to touch the throttle? Idles fine? Any popping? And midrange is good? You can ride for as far as you want at a steady 1/4 to 1/2 throttle and the motor runs smooth, with no popping or misses?
Just when you pin the throttle, it falls on its face?
