On my stock 63 Atlas, I cleaned, chemically dipped and rebuilt the two monobloc carbs. When leaning the bike to the left the bike will start to cut out/falter (float side) - if i right the bike, the bike will begin to idle again - lately this leaning to the left side and cutting out issue has gotten so bad that i cannot coast through a simple left hand turn through a light without the bike dying - any suggestions?

I'm not really a Norton guy but unless I'm mistaken the Atlas set up uses one carb bowl to feed both carbs, so I would look into raising the fuel level by putting a thin washer under the float valve holder, sometimes you also need to shorten the tickler length to get the float to shut off the fuel. I read this in a BSA book about monoblock tuning. it may work for you.

Cotton...you want to chime in on this.
