I just rode mine two up this evening, dropping my daughter off at a rehearsal. Of course she's nine, and it wasn't very far. It was a pretty tight squeeze though, my trunk box doesn't leave much room for her to slide back.

Brave fellow! I would not trust the DR suspension to handle the landing, even if I was willing. Looks like you bottomed your out pretty hard.

Good man for keeping the front up....I found with the Acerbis tank mine has a tendency to drop the nose pretty quickly unless you compensate...

Nice picture sequence too!

Congrats!

Nothing to worry about with 2nd gear. Perform all the basic maintenance: change oil, torque heads, set valves, grease chassis, clean carb and air filter, lube cables, etc. Then, just ride it and fix any issues as they come along. Have fun! :>

Definitely not lean. I have the CV carb, jetting is 135 main, 40 pilot, fuel screw 3.5 turns out. These are the settings I inherited. PO was running a hotter plug, DPR7EA which I swapped out for a 9EA. The airbox had the top drilled out with a couple large holes. I squared them off (pic a couple posts back). The needle has been shimmed up I believe, has two thin washers under the clip, I'm not sure what the stock configuration is.

The airbox still has the screen, uni-filter (not over-oiled, already made that mistake!) float level is correct using the clear tube off the check port method. Exhaust is all stock. I am going to pull the header and grind down the weld but that is the only modification to the exhaust I'm going to do. Quieter is more better.

In all likelihood I will upgrade to a pumper carb at some point in the future but for now I want to utilize what I have. This bike is not going to be a race bike. I want a reliable, quiet, efficient bike for exploring the area. If I need to ride in anger I have a YZ250 2T for that.

Depending on year, stock jetting is a 135 or 132.5 main and a 37.5 pilot. From the factory the sealed idle mixture screw is usually about 1.3 turns out. If it were mine, I'd remove both shims under the needle and run the idle screw in until the revs start to drop then back out about 1/8 turn. I guessing that will be less than 2. If still too rich, you might have to replace the pilot jet with 37.5.

The official book lists all of the original specifications:

Personally, I would return to original stock configuration and then work from there.

Thanks for the link, I checked it out and it will be great for future reference, a clymer came with the bike but it is always nice to have the factory manual too. Unfortunately it looks like this is for the dirt model with the pumper carb so I wasn't able to find the CV specs unless I overlooked them somewhere (entirely possible and wouldn't be the first time. or last...)

Thank you for the replies, that is pretty much the same info I got in my web searches - stock being somewhere between 127.5 and 135. Have some other issues going on now...
