No chance I am afraid, new OEM rubbers and new really tight clips

Maybe too tight and distorting the rubbers?

I'd bet the farm on carburation, could it be a carb flooding?

On my CL450 rebuild it was both, it only stopped surging after new rubbers, float and seats, plus setting the float levels properly. It's perfect now.

I'm a bit late on this but are all the pipes warming up evenly on starting?
