Sorry, the TTR has the exact same eng as the xt with maybe some minor timing/cam/gear differences. It is definitely not fuel injected let alone if it was, putting that eng into an xt frame would not work as you would have to modify the wiring harness drasticaly between the 2, more hassle than it's worth. The TTR also has the same carb though I'm sure the jetting is much different. I don't believe there is anything inherently wrong with the jetting as most people seem to have no issues. I just got screwed because I bought a bike with 600 miles on it that someone who had no idea what they were doing decided to mess with it. I'm going to buy a new float and float needle and that should solve my problem. I hope.
