Are the pilots easy to get at ? or will some good carb cleaner fix it ?

No to both questions i m afraid. The jets you need to use vice grips CAREFULLY pull and twist at same time then i had to soak for quite a while in cellulose thinners and use high pressure air with thin COPPER wire

Are you sure you have PD carbs? K6 originally had the oldstyle Keihins IIRC. Has plugcap #4 been checked for resistance? There's no point turning to the carbs before every item of the ignition has been checked.

Money is like manure. It's not worth a thing unless it's spread around.

Absolutely certain they are Keihin PD [ I know they are not the original for the K6, I chose them because they look better on a café racer which the bike now is]
This bikes engine & carbs etc have been totally rebuilt except for the floats in the carbs, but after the rebuild, done by a professional SOHC engine specialist, it did run fantastic for several months.

Right now I am still recovering from spinal surgery so not really fit enough yet to be getting up / down & dirty.
I will keep you posted
