Idle jets are the same regardless of the presence or lack of the idle solenoid. You only need the idle jet holder, not the idle jet, to eliminate the solenoid. I would try this. Maybe the solenoid isn't opening all the way, which is causing a lean progression circuit. I know, the idle circuit is fed from the progression circuit, but maybe you have the idle mixture screw out so far that you get a decent idle with lean progression.
As I posted yesterday to the '02 list, I'm betting the you have air leakage through the throttle shafts, although a plugged progression passage on the primary is worth looking into as well.
I would recheck the float level and make sure the float isn't leaking ( ie letting any gasoline into what should only be air).
