Did this just start happening or did it sit for while? Sounds carb related.

Just started happening. Unfortunatly I hadn't checked my air filter for while, cleaned it and right after it started acting up. Not sure if that would be related?

Could be the carb sucked in some of the dust and clogged the jets. I would remove and clean the carb.

I would clean the carb first because of what @mikeexplorer said.  then try adjusting the idle screw, then the air mixture screw if none else works.  Wouldn't hurt to check the valve clearance too..but I would work on the carb first.  Does your bike bog down at any time when you push it hard or want to die right after letting off the throttle?  If thats the case, I think it would be running too lean- (mixture screw adjustment)

oh, and how does it start in cold weather?

      Hi All,
      Hoping someone will be able to help.
      I have a 2006 Kawasaki Prairie 700 with twin Keihin Carbs CKVR D32. The Rear Carb is leaking out the side during cranking. it is not the float bowl overflow. It is on the opposite side of the carb from the diaphragm. 
      I got this bike not running and someone had already messed with it. I took the carbs apart , cleaned and rebuilt. Everything went pretty easy.  It looks like it could be missing a small tube between the carbs but I have all of them listed in the service manual installed. See the pic for where it is leaking from...
      Any help would be much appreciated.. Thanks.
