There's nothing wrong with the original carb, once it's set up right. It'll never be a pumper though, so you'll always have a bit of hesitancy off idle.

There's a good reason inmates have been putting fans on these bikes since day one...depends how and where you ride of course.

XRs only has them for $159...you can find them a few bucks cheaper elsewhere, but you could end up with the wrong one if you're not careful.

The one you want is the 732-FN1 model.

You need to test the output of the R/R with the battery connected, measuring across the terminals. You can't measure output directly from the R/R with nothing connected.
