I had a spare RR from the 600 that probably would have fit, but it sadly went with the 600. What's happening in Pomeranian?

Hey Fried! Congrats on the new bike - not a good idea to loctite jets.
Sounds like you are close to getting all the bugs worked out on the new chopper (klr 250)! hope to ride with ya again soon...
I still want to ride the santa ritas - found the wilmont gate once and didnt know what to think of the state trust land signs... Mabey a sunday ride sometime - my wife and I want to check it out. (she rides an xt225!)
Cheers!

... does the red Garter still happen?

Hey! I think that this will be a better device for exploring. It's definitely lighter and gets better mileage. I am a lighter guy so I don't need all that extra power l_o_l.

I was half kidding about the Loctite in the jet, and in any case I opened it today and everything looks fine in the bowl, and the Jets were seated properly. It's running rich right when the transition goes from the pilot jet to the main jet approaching 1/4 throttle. It will bog down and smoke a lot right around a quarter throttle, but if I open it up she takes off again and feels great on the top.
Thinking about raising the needle clip a notch, or maybe it just needs the air jet leaner still. Out is leaner on Keihen carbs, right?
As for red garter, dunno. Thursdays are not my days.
Maybe I can get my lady to come out and play on the DR350. Heck of a double date! (note: this will never happen, she won't do anything but passenge)

Replace the needle and needle jet.

That's not a bad idea.. If it's wearing down the surfaces, that would make sense. Needle didn't look out of the ordinary when I had it out, but I like the idea. Anyone know a good local place for carb parts, or should I order online and wait another week or two?

Surely you jest, there isn't a shop within 100 miles that carries needles...your lucky to find one that carries main jets and a couple pilots. Sudco is by far the most comprehensive online carburetor source. If I were you, I would go on Thumper Talk and look up what setup people are running for your bike or a bike very similar.

It was an honest question - I honestly wouldn't know. Thanks HTM, I'll give those a try.

In my experience your best bet to finding jets in town is at start cycle, he has a few boxes of random jets. If he doesn't have them, head over to honda and order them OEM. they can get OEM parts for any manufacturer, and don't charge for shipping, which is often the killer for small parts like jets.
