It cracked and coughed back through the carb, SO I think I'm leaking air and running quite lean myself. I'm trying to contact CycleWizard (sent him a PM on ADV, and about to send him an email to his AOL acct, as I hope it works) to see about an intake spacer that will allow the fitment of the carb to be much better.

** Does anyone know the BEST way to contact CW, so I can get this spacer ordered?? The XR has been down for 2.5 months now and I wanna ride it......

Quick question... How difficult is it to swap jets without removing the carb from the bike. Asking this because I buffered up the plastic choke nut last time and barely got it back on.

Can I remove the tank and just rotate the carb enough to get the top off?

I have had to pull the oil separator off its mount and remove the exhaust heat shield and the rear brake reservoir (just let it hang but keep it upright), and I think I pulled the bolts out of the throttle bracket to spin the carb enough to do the jets.

I went to hex head bowl screws and can do the jets with the carb un-rotated.

If you crank it up when does idle become not Idle?

Thanks. I have hex head bowl screws on there. So there is clearance around the frame to get a screwdriver in there to get the jets in/out without rotating it?

Short hex key and short screwdriver and a willingness to lie on the ground and look up, yeah.

Possible but not recommended as the carb. should always be cleaned while you are that far into it and the cables will be bent pretty far to rotate the carb, far enough around to get a clear shot at the jets.

The Boot, plastic cap, plunger , and spring parts of the choke are available separately from the cable. These parts also come with a new OEM Honda cable.

Did you even read Dave's post he said remove the cable bracket bolts?

Do you EVEN understand at best it's very difficult even when you do remove the cable bracket bolts?
Anyone that cross threads the choke fitting is sure to have trouble changing jets with the carb in the bike.
Can you understand that you are better off to pull the carb. and give it a careful cleaning when changing jets?
Besides it's a bitch to get the air intake boot back on the carb. without first clamping the boot to the carb. then shoving the carb. into the manifold.
Don't take my word on it, I have only re-jetted the carb. this one bike about 50 times, RE READ DAVE'S SECOND POST ON THE SUBJECT.

"Short hex key and short screwdriver and a willingness to lie on the ground and look up, yeah."

Be sure your cam is on so we can watch.

The mood seems generally pissy... do we need more discussion on CG?

Lying down under the bike would certainly lower the cg

I posted a video of my clacking top end a few pages back. Folks said I had the right exhaust valve adjusted incorrectly. I stepped through the process 3 more times each time with no success.

My process was as follows:
1. Turn the crank to TDC mark "slowly".
2. Just before the T marker I would hear a loud and distinct click.
3. Check valves to make sure they are loose.
4. Adjust RH exhaust to .005" even tried a tad tighter.
5. Button up, restart.... clack clack clack.

So against the advice that it was and probably still is a mis-adjusted RH EX valve I pulled the valve cover. The rockers show minimal wear (10,000) on a 1994.

I don't see anything wrong the surfaces are nice and convex which I believe they should be. Here's a link to a picture of the RH EX rockers which are representative of the other rocker/subrockers on this bike just in case you all can see something I can't



The cam chain seems nice and tight, the cam is clocked correctly with reference to the head and I cannot lift the chain up more than maybe a few thousands on the cam.

Any other ideas or put it back together and try to adjust the RH exhaust yet again? Feeling like a goon, this is simple stuff.

Final question, PO didn't take good care of the cosmetics on this bike, what is a good engine cleaner for this Honda I need all the help I can get.

Thanks again XRL gods, guru's and Dave...
