Marlin, are you sure you desmogged it properly? Sounds like you might have a vacuum line/air leak somewhere. Its pretty much impossible to fail Daves mods....if you followed the directions I don't see how you're having the symptoms you are, unless you put it back together wrong/minus a part or 2 etc.
And like somebody else mentioned the fuel screw can have a big effect......be sure you tried adjusting it in and out to get rid of your problems before you give up

Reds right, the pumpers have alot more variables to work with than the stock carb.....the stocker is Rainman compared to an aftermarket pumper

Hoping that the vibration at 55 will go away once they are broken in a bit more. I'll be running them at higher pressures on the street (26-28 psi) and then probably airing down to 20 or so when I hit the trails.
Aggressive knobbed dirt tires definately don't ride as nice as more street focused tires on the pavement, but if you do mostly off road like me its prolly worth the trade-off.
Now if the majority of your riding is pavement, or you don't ride aggressively off-road, and like a smoother on-road ride, you may want to reconsider you're tire choice for the next set

BTW I run my knobbies at 22psi dirt and street, been working well so far

I don't know anything about the emmisions on these bikes, but I know the emmission setup on the 80's model Toyota trucks make for a lot of headaches if the removal isn't done properly....
All I know is I got the parts from Sudco today to mount up my FCR, all I need now is the extended fuel screw I ordered, when that gets here in a day or 2 the EPA mandated stocker will be coming off, and Mr. Flatslide will be going on

I had them balanced, but it still has a pulsing vibration at around 55-60 mph.

Your powerband is likely out of adjustment. Send it to Brian... he adjusts them for free.

I hear Brian charges an outrageous fee to adjust the powerband.

Mine does now! Sounds like a beast too. Gotta dial in the carb and watch this thing take off from under me.

I hear Fritz uses the orange ones... they are really expensive to adjust. Good excuse to stick it to him AGAIN!

I think it's atrocious the way Brian keeps sticking it to Fritz. Not really.
