Can anyone help me out? I have a 2000 zr 600, with vforce reeds. the sled is new to me but it seems real sluggish, not as snappy as i thought it would be. Tha carbs are stock with a 350 main, e clip in the middle position, airscrews 1.5 turns out. I ride around 1000-3000 feet @ about 20-30 degrees. And it is hard to start if i have been riding awhile. any suggestions would help, thanks in advance.

That sounds about right.  I have a ZL500 (1999), and found out that I had a leaky exhaust gasket on the left cylinder.  Changed them both, cleaned the carbon from it, and BLAMMO!!! Brand new sled.... Dunno if thats your problem, but worth a quick check, make sure the nuts are tight at the exhaust, if they are loose, take it off and check for carbon build up on the manifold.  The gaskets are only like 2 bucks a peice and take all of 30 minutes with taking a long time to file off the carbon.... and cleaning the motor up where the oil spit out...
