carb cleaning and clutch work go beyond my knowledge... ive heard carbs arent too bad to do i just havent done them myself before... is it possible it would be some sort of tuning?
For flat slide carbs.
For round slide carbs.

refer to post #5. yours are butterfly.
to answer your question, there are three basic styles of carbs. round slide, flat slide, and butterfly. each is determined or described by the shape and/or action of the portion of the carb controlled by the throttle cable.
round slides are just that, round portions controlled by the throttle cable. flat slides are similar in action, but the shape more resembles a rectangle vs round, hence the term "flat". your carbs are considered as butterfly due to the action. basically a flat plate that could resemble a butterfly in motion.
should make sense once you see the moving parts.
