So apparently the last moron who worked on these carbs forgot to tighten the carb boots. Idiots all around me And I wonder why it ran like crap.

Got the jet kit installed which included drilling the slides, I put in 140 142 142 140 mains needles on 3rd clip, new springs. I also said goodbye forever to those crap phillips carb bowl screws and replaced them with some stainless socket cap screws.

Other than jetting I also machined up a custom damper post mount that I welded to to the steering stem. Works well.

I need to get the bike back together and go for a ride now that I have the AFR unit hooked up. Maybe later tomorrow, have to pick up my new dirt bike tomorrow morning.
