Sweet. I hit a set of whoops the other day while day dreaming at around 60mph. Then only thing that slowed me down was fear, the bike sucked it up perfectly.

When you crash, you need to go down on the right side and it will correct this.

Jwalters & Flyguy,

I seem to remember the floatlevel is 18mm in the books but 19mm cures a dribling carb when parked over on the stand.
Hence that mentioned 16mm sounds awfully wrong?

Does anyone live near Southern California , Long Beach more specifically. I want to compare my piggy to someone else's and I don't know anyone who has one. It would be awesome to go on a little ride and compare if you have it plated, gas would be on me, send a PM.

The Clymer service manual also calls for 16mm. That seems to be the general consensus. I'll play around with it, and report back. So much easier working on the one carb, than my Honda CB750. All 4 got tedious! :-)

Anybody have a tanker brace they are willing to part with?

My buddy scored a tank without the brace.

Ditto. I'm hoping Hodakaguy will make another batch sometime soon - buy if someone is sitting on a spare, drop me a line ( after contacting Shibby first of course).

Ah, my bad. Then add 1mm ie 17mm and rid yourself of leaking fuel when lent over on the sidestand.

Reducing it 1mm helps with a tough starting bike also.

Actually having thought about it, using Borynack's mid-agressive shim stacks, I would add one face shim to the conpression stack in the forks and one or two face shims to the rebound in the shock if you want your clickers set close to the middle. Mine are turned in about 3/4 closed, which isn't an issue for me.

I really like using the thinner oils (3w) and have since started using 3w in my truck shocks. It requires more shims, but I think it works better.

Mine's a little soft too but for dual sport use with slow, often very technical trails it can sometimes be nice.

I wish my KTM had 3w. I notice it changes quite a bit while it warms up. I have to stop and release the air multiple times too. Only then does it come into it's own.

Hi Guys,
Just wanted to say thanks for the help with my jetting. The bike was running lean last December, but I over compensated. After double checking the float height (right at 16mm) I downsized to 70 idle jets and 175 mains. Still was spuddering so I pulled the air filter, lo and behold it ran great! So at that point, I knew I was too fat in the mid range. Long story short, I lowered the needle 2 clips and that put me right where I needed to be.
Thanks again.
Jesse

OK, that is a first. A vanity plate on the XRR.

I like it.
