Well, originally I wasn't going to be hitting the road. I was halfway through a bunch of modifications when a sudden and unforeseen life event made it necessary to relocate back to Oregon. Trust me, I probably wouldn't have started ordering tons of accessories and turning wrenches if I had known that I would be leaving. Besides, this is almost exactly how I started my last big trip on an XRL....modifying stuff up until the day I left.

Even when I got the bike fairly warmed up (Oil Temp: 215 degrees in reservoir) the throttle was still really unresponsive. Since I haven't done Dave's mod yet, I only turned the mixture screw out 2 full turns (not sure if that was the right idea). Anyone have any suggestions?

Hopefully I'll be doing Dave's Mod tomorrow (if the jets show up) and putting on the FMF pipe on Friday. Maybe that could solve my problems? I'm all ears at this point...
Your unifilter may be making it a bit lean. Try turn the mixture screw out at least another half turn. New jets and Dave's mods will probably help you out too.

How much oil is on that uni filter? Get the 3 ranges of plugs and run/check them to see what is happening. Check over all the smog stuff again + above post.

Check the smog stuff first of all, if a hose got left off, one of the vacuum caps didn't seat or one of the hoses are routed wrong it will cause problems.

I doubt the snorkle would cause low speed issues as there is little restriction around idle, but high rpm it could.

Did you turn out the idle screw two turns, or out TO two turns? The idle screw shouldn't cause high rpm issues however. Cold start should need choke, if it doesn't the screw is out to far.

If you come through AZ, north or south of Prescott give me a shout.

I did all the same mods and mine already had a uni filter

I did not touch the carb and it runs great!! in fact it ran fine before the mods and better after
I almost don't want to do Daves mods to the carb but probably will just to see if temps drop

I agree make sure your vac caps are fine and if so I would dial the carb back to where it was just to see what happens

If you do end up doing Dave's Mods don't go too big on the jets. When I did mine I jumped right up to 55/158 and it was way rich. Tried a few different combos since then. 50/152 seemed to run well but was a bit lean. Currently running 55/155 and happy so far, but I may go back to 52/155 next time it's apart because it seems a bit fat at idle.

On my last XR I added a Stage 1 cam and it had no problem bringing her up. I was really surprised. I could ease into a wheelie in first and hit second and crank her open.

On the current bike I added an FCR (motor stock) and it's got similar pull. One of the easier wheelie machines. Very forgiving.

Lower gearing on both bikes.

For sure! I'll certainly be coming through AZ. I'll let you know when when I get closer.

Mine with basic mods and a somewhat tired motor (15/48 sprockets) brings it up relatively easy in 1st if you crank it pretty good. Doesn't want to come up in 2nd. Could just be lousy technique on my part. Trying to improve at it slowly.

I'm running 14/45 gearing, Dave's mods, Q4 pipe, 4.7 Clrake and my results are about the same. I can get the 2nd gear wheelie (get up to speed in 1st, pull in clutch shift to 2nd, rev engine, dump clutch) fairly easily assuming the tanks not full Change your gearing to 14/48 and you'll be surprised how much easier the front end comes up
