Also look at the two screws holding the black plastic lid on the carb and the two holding the float bowl; phillips type screws are stock, allen head screws are a sure tip that someone has been in the carb.



Here you can see the allen head that has replaced the phillips. I use a washer to give maximun surface area when going thru plastic, alum, etc. Right next to it, you can also see the vacuum hose that runs the petcock. (a teaching moment )

Thanks for the information; this is helpful. I'll pull the carb apart sometime and see what the jetting situation looks like. One last request; what is the size of the standard main and pilot jets?

Thanks,
Harry

A picture is worth a thousand words

This was my first weekend ride with the Lynx. I was working the dirt pile. Took a harder route up and blew my line. That vertical drop looked 8' high. Probably 3' maybe 4'. Launched off the bike as the front wheel hit and the bike flopped over. Notice the fresh dirt at the lip and the heated jacket cord stretched out. Those are my entry and exit lines I can be so a goof sometimes but I refuse to quit trying. I scattered the windscreen and broke one HDB mirror. Note to self" fold the mirrors in when off road". My little pinky is still a little sore but no real fowl. I really expected to find cracks in the fairing. None found. Took miles for dirt to quit flying in my face. The lamps were planted in that relatively soft dirt.
The fairing I bought was for a DR400 so I had to modify the dash to attach to my upper tree/clamp. I am a little nervous with the single lower mounting bolt but it has done well.
As far as worried about smacking the fairing on a forward dismount......I hope I never find out. Anything up in front over the bars would not be friendly. I have my GPS mounted up high and it does bother me from a safety aspect. I think the ease of viewing it and keeping my eyes closer to the road is worth the tradeoff.

The only thing im worried about is smacking that thing with my head if I slip forward off a peg, or if I crash and it rips off the bolts.

However, the 16t didn't work very well back at home on the twisties, 2nd was too short and 3rd was too tall (maybe 1st and 2nd). None-the-less, back to stock gearing: 15-42. Tomorrow is test day.
Welcome to the insanity.
A way to improve the wide-ratio gaps is with a carb that lets the DR pull smoother at lower RPMs.

i'm thinking my only option is bleach, which will of course bleach out the liners. and while i firmly believe that form follows function, i'd rather seek a non-damaging alternative before i ruin a $500 pair of boots.

any ideas?

I am lurking here checking out the big DRs --dig 'em with the 19/17 combo...but that grabbed my attention. The other day, I was talking stanky boots with the salesman at REI...and he suggested to dissolve a handful of generic brand denture cleaner tablets in a bucket of water together with the boots...might help and if not you won't have any plaque on your boots, right?

Hmmmm, never felt I had a need. But if that would be one of the bennies, maybe the CV really does suck and I don't know it yet.
I've always been a short shifter too.
