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


Nope,not Shawn. This guy went to the Lincon factory to take the class. (Why can`t I spell that right? Like the 16th Pres.)

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.
Thanks. I should have watched the youtube videos and read up on the carb. before I pulled it off. Owell I have to put a new throttle cable on so I will play with the carb. then. It does have a bunch of stuff to fine tune like you said but it looks like a bunch of stuff to get out of ajustment on a old carb. You dont have a extra throttle cable you want to sell do you?
On a good note the fuel petcock was leaking but I had a Blaster gas tank in the shed that uses the same guts as the WR does so I got the leaking petcock fixed.

I bought Kyle a pair he has wore them a few times and hasn't complained about the buckles. I am not sure about then being waterproof mine are a few years old and my feet get wet. I did score a used pair of Tech 2 on ebay before xmas to replace my other pair that have holes in the soles from my foot pegs.

Heated jackets are great. Buy it to mow in and write it off.

He does the rest.

Although now that I know Alan has several welders and appears to have plenty of time on his hands, I might just save myself the $10.



Did you crash anyone's party New Years eve?

The Alpinestars Scout WP boots are on my list. They have a high user rating, you can actually walk in them, and they'll fit under jeans, if you want to go casual.

PS - I would have provided a link to Iron Pony, but they didn't appear to carry them.

Although I did not arrest her (conflict of interest so the highway patrol got her), the DUI that blew a stop sign and hit me while I was on duty New Years Eve got arrested. 4 times the per se limit for alcohol. Does that count?

Anymore, New Years Eve is really a lot more quiet that most people think. I actually don't think we had any fight or party calls... people pretty much know there is a massive police presence and they will get pulled over for damn near anything. We are lot more busy on a typical night than we are on New Years.

A funny story about New Years, back in 1998 as it was rolling over to 1999, a guy I used to work with got on the radio and yelled: "99!!!!!!".

Upon hearing this, half the other guys working were on the radio: "Woo hoo, 1999! Happy New Year! Yeah, '99!!!!!!!!!"... that bullshit for like a minute straight. As soon as there was a break in the radio traffic, the original guy gets back on and he's screaming: "Everyone shut up, I got a Signal 99 (signal for emergency traffic only) with shots fired!!!!!!!!".

Oooooops. Turned out okay. Not funny then; but funny now.

I have these. I think I have previously responded to a comment you made about them.

Good boots but they will not fit under jeans comfortably. They are tall and bulky, though quite light, comfortable, and waterproof.

The buckles get dirt up in them and have a hard time latching, you need to keep them clean.

Revzilla or New Enough has them for $249 shipped.

I'll 2nd the Scouts. Like 'em a bunch. As Mark said, walkable and waterproof. I purchased the only pair IP had. Not sure why they had them, but they're not something they carry.
