look for a draw just in case. But check the ground wire under the seat. sometimes they come loose or get rust. That effect the battery charging.

I then tried 52/155 jetting and it got a little better. Recently went back to stock 50/152 jetting and it's running right again. This was with a K&N air filter, snorkel removed, and a XR600R muffler with no baffle. I also got rid of the K&N a little while back and went back to a paper air filter with no loss of performance that I could tell.

I would keep the stock jetting in it, then see if you need to re-jet after doing the other mods. You may or may not need different jetting with a Uni and FMF at your elevation.
Thanks,
I'll just order a Uni-filter, 52 pilot, 152 and 155 main
The pipe will be later

I have read the quick shot 3 should work on my carb as well,


also how much did that quick shot 3 set you back? I'm trying to find the best price on one.

Usd forks?

Does anybody have a complete parts list to convert to upside down forks?
What about different makes, IE: Kawasaki or Suzuki?
I think I would like to start collecting the needed parts, probably a late fall to winter project, obviously no hurries.
I would like to keep my stock, Warp front hub and axle if at all possible.

Remove the positive battery term and put a 12v test light between it and the positive terminal on the battery,,any decent draw will light the test light...oh...and get a freekin pen..

Even worse would have my passenger fall off at highway speeds due to a broken sub frame. Seems Honda could be partially responsible. There was a question posted a while back asking about what the weight limit increases to, once the hog legs or struts are installed. I didn't see the answer. please repost if possible, Thanks
Speaking of riding 2 up...on Tuesday I took the MSF BRC-2 course. While I was there another guy was going through the course on his plated XR230... with a passenger ... that was a dude . He didn't do too bad, I wouldn't want to try the "box" with a passenger though.
