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.
We're not out here to rough it. We're here to smooth it. Things are rough enough in town.
