Hi there, first time post.
Just replaced the carb on my '79 BRAT with a weber, straight out of the box. Noticed that there were a lot of vacumm hoses left over with no place to go (Calif. emmissions). Starts, runs fine, however, when idleing engine races like its going to take off for the moon! No amount of adjusting idle seems to make a bit of differance.
Anyone have any suggestions? Sure would appreciate hearing from you all.
Cheers
CAR:D

Check all the vac. ports on the carb it self. And check around the base to make sure gasket is seated right:D

Vacum problem..., couldn't agree with you more, but which hose? As I mentioned, have a few hoses left over with no where to go...checked for leaks, carb gasket is sitting right

Take starting fluid and spray in areas and when rev goes up spray again to locate leak then you should be able to find it then.
