You'd be truly amazed what going up a size or 2 will do for your starting and off idle throttle response.....its WELL worth the effort, I'm talking from experience

Speaking of jetting, I can't remember which way the mixture screw affects things.

In=richer? Or do I have that backwards on these carbs?

Too many blows to the skull over the years!!

Speaking of having to kick these bikes, a multitude of times...I would start with the stator!

If it ain't getting the spark it needs, then no amount of jetting is going to make that bugger start properly.

***edit***

Also, these buggers are very easy to kick over when the decompressor cables are adjusted to spec and the proper technique for kicking is used.

Hope you can see it
What is with the different betwen part numbers and and which set do I need for a full carb rebuild
I know I need two sets but not sure which ones
The first and last are the same item, as-is the middle two are the same. 16010-MG2-305 looks like the correct part. 16010-MG2-791 cannot locate what it is.

Does it come with a "Whenever it's broken, send it in for a free replacement" warranty that the Ricky Stator has? I'm wanting them to make an XT600 stator since I have one of those now. Worth every penny, them Ricky Stators are.

Im hopefully picking up my new xl600rmg on thursday, and was wondering what manual everyone recommends, Clymer or Haynes? Any obvious omissions in either?
I had a Haynes for my xl350r as well as a genuine honda manual, and found the haynes ok if a bit vague sometimes.

At $65, you are more than a third of the way to having the Ricky unit. I saw those myself when I went through this process a few weeks ago and am very glad I got the Ricky.

Let's put it this way, seeing as you don't want to be spending a lot of money on this build, does it make sense to spend $215 in the end, when you could have just bought it right the first time for $150, after the turd piece takes a crap? And to further put it into perspective, the OEM unit is around $340, so for the $150, you are going the cheap route, and getting quality. My .02

If you can find the Honda version, go for that.

BTW, I want to see pictures of that bad boy!!!

Yeaah I've used it for head gaskets. Says it right on the can I like it for it's tackiness on the rocker box, and for the head gasket you can reuse it with silver spraypaint too,even. That's the other trick. Doesn't say that on the can but it works!

I hope you post a pic of your new ride, I had a RMG years ago, and regret selling it ever since......

Make sure that you get a manual that covers the Aussie version of the bike...the UK version will have some minor differences.
