Can you tell us what exactly is your oil checking procedure ?

Just curious what others "normal condition" idle speeds are. I've got the Mikuni pumper installed.

We're still trying to dial this thing in.

Stock carb, I idle at 1650-1700 which is where it likes it

If you watch some of the hoffmann australian safari stuff from back in the early 2000's they were idling the bikes at 1700-1800

Thank you for the input Keyz.
The Mikuni is a lot like a woman. She's a real bitch to get going, but once you get her going there's no stopping her.

I have the same problem with the pumper mikuni on a DR350, I've come to the conclusion it's starting procedure, just needs a little foreplay I usually set the idle high on start, and then bring it back down after it's warmed up .

I've never used the choke on my 650R (unless it's frostbite cold) and I have to say the stock carb is actually not that bad

My idle is 1500. It will stall out with anything less. Probably due to the hotcams. But not sure. Starts first kick on cold mornings with choke on and fires up one kick no choke when warm.

I have subscribed tothis thread for 2.5 years and its an education at the least. Now wanting to simplify a bit...can i do betteer than the xrr as a single track/adv bike?
Note.....no interest in the latest bikes and associated cost. I had a crfx 450 which was great but bitten by the xr bug traded it for the 650. Is there anything a 49 year old dude should consider in the place of the two mentioned?
Thanks
