Bring it on over. Looks like I am going to be off work until atleast the end of the month.

Kyle rode the War pig up and down the raod today. It is running better. Still has a bog on the low end some times. I Cleaned the carb. yesterday, checked the valves, and put a new spark plug in it. He was riding wheelies in 2nd gear and shifting to 3rd. then the radiator started leaking. The elbow that goes into the top of the tank has a small leak.

Looks like a Keihin FCR-mx39. Thats what the repair manual said it should have. All I know is it is a Keihin. The manual doesn't say anything about timing the pump. You got a link or any more info on how to do it?

ThumperTalk has some really good info on tuning the Yamaha WR carbs. I got a lot of helpful tips for my WR250F over there.

Yep, sounds like thats your problem. 4 stroke bog on a slide carb. Could be the ap spring being inconsistent also,they're known to do that. The collective info on it is to install a merge racing ap spring and retune the ap so it runs consistent. There's other mods to get rid of it,but none are as permanent or reliable as the spring.

http://www.mxrob.com/FCR_Install.htm. it's that's the bottom,about 1/3 of the way up. In short,take the carb off,fill the bowl,remove the cable cover, I removed the top cover and used the arm there to turn the throttle instead of the actual throttle wheel. Just lift the slide quick (pressure valve wont allow fuel to shoot if its too slow) and watch the fuel stream. You want it to barely miss the slide. You can adjust the screw on the arm that the throttle wheel contacts. Cant recall which way was to advance or retard it though. Or you can half ass it by leaving it on and just getting to the screw by the cables. IIRC a quarter turn was a good amount when it got close.

Amazing carbs with tons of features and adjustments, unfortunately thats also their downfall when one goes wrong,needs serviced,or you just want something simple. I swapped my dr650 over to one,modded it to fit and use the vac petcock too...I'll be damned if I ever put the stock carb back on now.

I don't actually need anything done, I just felt out of place with everyone talking about their schweet skills and welding contraptions.

But when I break my frame you'll be my number one dude, then Shawn number 2 (I assume you were talking about Shawn?)

Tech inspection just looks for all the street legal stuff in working order and that it's not obscenely loud. Navigation is done via roll chart so that and a good odometer are required. The sand is heavy sugary sand so tires with deeper knobs work best. The sand is mostly hard packed except for some corners where it gets chewwed up and soft down deep. Barring any big delays they try to finish the bikes before dusk so super bright lights aren't a must.

Those are the infamous "buckles get stuck" boots. If you can tolerate that, they are fine. Just don't try to pry them off with a screwdriver, it ends poorly. I leave mine in the buckle and just unlatch and wiggle my foot out.
