If it idles faster when you turn it in, the header problem isn't the carburation. That is what you want. Turn it in or out until you get the fastest idle, then turn your idle adjustment screw down, but if your head pipe is glowing you have a leak at the manifold. You need a new manifold gasket or use some high heat gasket material to seal it, or you have a crack in your pipe. With that said, you won't ever get the carb adjusted right until you have no air coming in at the manifold.

I owned it before Gmoney. Shoot me a pm and i'll let you know what issues I fixed, but I literally only owned it a week. It ran fine for the few rides I took it on carb wise

What I'm taking about can't really be described as a high idle. More like, you know how some bikes get real revvy and tach up right before the fuel bowl empties? That sort of thing. Air leak makes perfect sense. I'll spray some carb cleaner around the manifold and see what the reaction is. There's a decent amount of gasket material all over it. Maybe I should check out some parts to order.

I greatly appreciate your feedback HTM.

Ok, let's say 9:30 at the very end of Wilmont Road (there is a gate there to State Trust land). I will meet Ebemone at the Shell Station off I-10 at 9am and then we will ride down. Plan on being back to the staging area by 1:30. We will get gas and a snack at the Shell station in Sonoita. Nothing too tough, perhaps a little rocky in places, but I have ridden with someone that rode it on a KLR before. One little single track segment, but we can get everyone through if there is someone lacking in confidence.

See you at 9am. I'm on a blue DRZ with a big headlight.

Probably too soon for a virgin ride of that size, anyways.

Might the single track be the connector between the top of Gardner Canyon and Cave Canyon?
