Yo B Dirt,

What kind of Renthals do you have on there? I'm shopping to replace mine.

CR Hi on both my L and R, and love em! The L stock bars had to much pull back for me.

once settled in, valves on XRLs don't move much. Always check with engine dead cold.

I'm thinking I ended up with 58/158 jetting in mine, with aftermarket exhaust, at 900 ft. I would think the exhaust would affect main jet selection more than pilot.

Thanks Motometal. Yeah I've checked the valves a couple times already and they're spot on. I do tend to ride it assertively so I check when I have the tank off. It's so easy. I want the bike as quiet as possible, and can't stand re-packing mufflers. So I'm going to keep the stocker for a while. New jets are coming and hopefully that will help the starting problem. Leak down check scheduled for this weekend.

Thanks B Dirt.

I'll have a look. The stock bars are too short and make it tough to stand.
