No work, nice weather and only a couple of hundred miles left on a set of tires.
What should I do?

Question

...anyone know if there's a loop out of Blue Ridge? Or is it just a dead end?

Also, how many turns out on the mixture screw?

And when does it bog, ie what throttle position?
going to jet it for 7K and didn't really paid attention to the throttle position.

don't remember the setting either, someone did it for me.

jeff thinks moving the clip by 1 notch will be ok.

7K should work better, throttle position will tell you which variable to work with; needle, main, pilot, mixture screw, etc.

I always do everything myself and document everything in my log book; my XRL was a PITA to rejet, but I got it all done including new hex head screws for both carb ends. I just received my smog block off kit, so that's next!

Yep, give the clip a try, but do one variable at a time and do lots of test rides to dial it in.

I hear ya. I got the Africa Twin loaded for the road ride there; taking off within the hour. My XR will be waiting for me there, thanks to my bro. If I end up not doing the Dual Sport, I'll be equally happy not paying the fees and riding around Keyesville on my own. Ride safe! Mario

At the last minute, I decided a ride was in order. No work, and I needed a little something to keep my head straight I guess.

Placerita Canyon



Soledad Canyon



Indian Canyon



Off Angeles Forest Hwy





Mt. Emma Rd.



Valyermo



Heading back down from the hills





Black Butte and El Mirage in the distance



Biggie's old rental houses





Looking back from where I've been



Great day for a little desert ride



Hinkley



Lunch in Barstow



Have to finish later.

My bother tells me there is something special about this Del Taco and I tired it coming home from Grand Canyon but couldn't tell what was different. Does anyone know?
