Yesterday I disassembled all the suspension and swingarm linkages and lubed all the bearings and cavities with Maxima waterproof grease.

While the shock was off I verified the spring was a Eibach 550 in lb., which I was glad, as it is plenty of spring, and actually the heaviest spring that Eibach sells for the KLR now because anything more and it exceeds the GVWR.

I buttoned that all up and torqued it all to spec, and then pulled the carburetor to clean and verify all the jetting and replace the phillips screws on the float bowl and diaphragm cover with stainless allen bolts and add a T mod to the vent.

The MAIN jet is the stock 145 , but the needle is a Klx with the clip on the 2nd groove.

The SLIDE HOLE is stock.(It is not drilled.)

The PILOT jet is stock #40, but I opened it a hair with a #78 number drill,which isn't even .001" bigger.

It should put the PILOT between a stock #40 and a #42.

The FLOAT LEVEL was dead perfect at .690".

And the adjustable FUEL SCREW was 2 turns out, I will have to play with that once I get back on the road.

The AIRBOX is stock except for the removed snorkel.I am going to open it up some more.

I also installed a Sunstar 16 tooth sprocket.
