Weather finally got warm enough here to go for a couple of rides. Was really rich in the midrange mostly. I had the needles all the way up, clips on the bottom, so I moved the clips to the second from top notch. That got it pretty close. I now think the top end is a little rich, I have 260 mains in it so will get some 250 and try those. The forks with emulators seem good, wasn't really concentrating on those, but when suspension does not remind you it's there, it usually means it's working pretty well. Need some longer rides with a little warmer weather. So good to ride it again, been almost 6 months since, had a pretty long winter here.

Dropped the needles one more notch to the top clip, and leaned the idle mixture screws a bit more. Got a nice crack sound to the pipes now. Throttles so much nicer down low than the stock VM30 carbs did. Rides off from a standstill and has better bottom for sure, and I have a 16 tooth front sprocket so it helps there. Midrange torque got stronger as well. Have not had a chance to wind it out hard yet, I think the leaner needle position made the top end about right, will see.
Think I will enlarge the slow speed fork emulator bleed holes a touch, it's not quite as plush on bump as I want, probably also give them some more spring tension to move the high speed damping up a bit.
