Pull the hose off the inlet tube and you should see the white top of it just sticking out. You will need a little screw driver or knife to pry it out. Just remove it to check if that is the problem, but don't run to long without it. It is pretty small.

I'm tired of this 40 mpg business and think I'll tear the carb completely down ('08 DR650) and clean and rebuild it.

Can anyone tell me what parts to get, or if there is a kit, what kit to get?

the drain screw on the carb when loosened fuel will flow with the petcock in the prime position and the plugs are wet.I can't replace the plugs until tommorow.

So you have fuel. Did you try cleaning the plugs? Crank the engine over with the plugs out to clear the cylinder. You said you checked for spark?
Have you checked your valve clearance? When did the bike run last and how was it running? We need more info in order to help you out.

Thanks. I actually want to keep it stock -- i.e.. not cut the airbox. Does their kit allow that option?

They do sell a repair kit that includes a new float needle and o-rings. I have heard that bad o-rings can hurt your mileage. An 08 seems a liitle new for carb problems, unless you have really racked up the miles. How is your fuel screw setting, air filter?

This bike has never yielded great fuel economy. It runs great and idles smooth but it just does not get above 40 mpg.

I notice they also sell a replacement float for the stock carb. How valuable is that to the fine-tuning picture?

I would think float level could cause issues. Seems odd that a stock untouched carb would have one out of wack, but anything is possible. I would doubt you need a new one, if anything just adjust the existing ones height. There is a good resource for this carb --- just google the BST bible (wrote by a KTM guy) if you don't have a manual.

edit: BST40 bible

switch

also check the kill switch right by the start button.......I've had that bugger get dirty/rusty and even in the run position the beast wouldn't start/run. If it has spark It has to be fuel.

There are two o-rings on the float assembly; 15 and 16 here:

Yes gas will flow until the float bowl is empty. So, put the petcock in run or reserve; fuel flow should STOP after the float bowl is empty. Let us know. Also, see my response above; about the two o-rings.

No, it really doesn't. I live at 5800 ft and ride up from there. Stock jets, all I've done is remove the snorkel and cut a small hole in the top of the airbox (1.75 x 1.75 or there abouts). I always got above 160 miles before reserve, close to 60mpg: ride solo, 15t sprocket, don't abuse my DR, short shift, yada yada. This has lessened over the last year, I'm guessing my carb parts are wearing at 21,000 miles. Original chain is just about done, new one and sprockets on order.

So, what's your altitude??

The replacement stock float is $74.
