Looks like fun!

Reminds me of riding in Moab with the 650. Worked surprisingly well!

Just added the Tour of Idaho T1 Challenge for this summers ride. I know it's not advised to ride anything but a lightly luggaged dual sported MX bikes, but both my buddy and I are stubborn. We'll be riding our XR650R's and camping. Should be a fun challenge. We may not do well but I'll be happy to complete within the standings. Apparently only (4) bikes have completed the T1 challenge from N to S; the direction we plan on traveling.

How's that suspension working out for you?

I love XRR's with black wheels. I know that's pretty petty, but they make the bike look so gnarly. The grey forks with black wheel and gators set it off.

I have strange tastes...

Confirm your jets aren't clogged. Doesnt take much of a particle to block a pilot which will stop the idling and play havoc with the rest of the jetting.

Remember the pilot does 0-1/8, but is also WFO the whole time above that.

Take your carb out, open the float bowl, remove hoses and buy a good carb cleaner aerosol and spray the heck out of every hole and opening, letting the cleaner run out carrying any dirt with it.

Hi guys,
I need some jetting help. I've been using the XR jetting guide, but I can't seem to get rid of a low throttle opening studder. The thing pulls like crazy through most throttle/rpm range and it doesn't seem to occur at higher RPM, but when I am in lower RPM and I give it sudden small throttle opening it studders before eventually gaining speed.

I'm at 500 feet, and it's been 30-40 degrees outside. I'm running the stock airbox with a oil-foam air filter. FMF header, FMF exhaust and FMF jet kit. Because of the open exhaust and cold dense air, I think I should be on the fat end of the jetting curve.

Important note, bike ran well with stock header and the FMF. Currently, I'm running a 180 main, 72 idle jet and 2 turns out on the air/idle screw and the needle in the 4th clip from the top, but I still get studdering on occasion. (Since its 1/4 throttle opening, I'm focusing on the idle jet. I was running 68s and 70 idle jet but no different)

Couple more things I'm going to check:
-Look for an airleak...
-Wait for temps to warm up and see if my situation improves
-New spark plug
-Float height? It ran find before the new header so I hate adjusting it...

My question: I hear a lot of folks swapping carbs. Is this a symptom of a stock carb with an uncorked bike? Is this what others observe with the stock carb?

Any input is appreciated. Thanks!

Do the easy things first.
Set Idle mixture to peak rpm then go richer till you notice a decrease in rpm.
(CCW)
test ride and evaluate you might try more mixture again if it helps?
from there you need to plan to remove the carburetor
Check float height (16mm) if higher than >16mm adjust float and re test if a fairly big adjustment was necessary.
if lower than or close to <16mm raise the needle (lower the clip)

Then again you ask if its a typical symptom of the stock carburetor?
you cant expect the stock carb to take on large and fast throttle changes from low RPMs
it should be able to respond well to appropriate throttle control though.

Hope that helps

My 2000 has its rearend pushed to the left when viewing from behind. I know this is a common thing on these bikes. I'm not sure if mine was that way when it was new, at least not to the degree it is now. Has anyone had any luck fixing this? I've read alot of posts on the subject and I've tried tweaking the subframe with a large pipe with no luck. It actually does not appear to be bent, but seems like it was built that way. Is the tweak in the subframe or in the plastic? I don't really want to apply any more force than I've already tried to the subframe, don't want to break a weld. Are later model subframes straighter? New plastic? Thanks

I think you're getting into that gigantic main jet too soon, I'd start dropping the needle if you want to run it that rich.

Thanks guys for the input, I appreciate it.

First things first, I'm going to remeasure my float level. Maybe it was tweaked when I rebuilt my carb this winter. If the fuel wasn't high enough in the bowl that could explain my symptoms because at higher rpm you have more venturi pressure to suck the fuel up. I've been playing with the idle mixture and various jet/needle positions

My bike is built way beyond what you're describing and I run a 70s pilot. I've had it on the dyno at 600ft and the A/F was perfect. I think you'd have a hard time coming up with a situation where you'd ever need a 72 pilot if my bike doesn't need it. For comparison I run a 192 main jet most of the year, 190 when it's REALLY hot and humid, 195 when it's really cold.
