That is a great are to ride and I definitely miss it. I also miss riding up the Clackamas river and around Mount Hood. There are tons of great back roads between Detroit lake and Estacada that I used to ride every weekend when I lived up there. The funny thing is I am moving to Redmond in a few weeks and have a whole new bunch of riding to look forward too. I can't wait to blast some high desert sandy roads! As far as Stuart Island goes I did ride my horse (still have him) everywhere. I rode him to school every day and let him graze on the play field until it was time to go home. The funny part is that my parents wouldnt let me have a motorcycle because it was too dangerous but they bought me a completly un-broke 1 1/2 year old Arab gelding and let me train him myself basicly unsupervised and didnt think twice about it.I rode that horse bare back with no bridal, just a rope around his neck, all over that island at higher speeds than you would hit on a dirt bike. That was dangerous..

No problems on mine. Don't know what brand Bark Busters they are but my tank is an IMS, plenty of room.

If the engine is running fine above 4k then thats the main jet thats ok,sorry i cant be of more help
Good point about the sensor, I guess I'm going to have to take the carb off yet again

I took the carb off again and cleaned a little more thoroughly and it ran better, but not perfect. Took the carb off again and completely disassembled it, cleaned even more thoroughly - removed jets and soaked in Seafoam, removed and cleaned the needle valve, replaced o-rings, reassembled and checked float height. Ran perfect after that. I've put 5k+ miles on it since then with no problems.
Thanks for your help, what is this mysterious 'Seafoam' you talk of ??

Sea Foam Spray can be used to clean gum and varnish from a 2 cycle engine. Run engine and spray Sea Foam Spray directly inside carburetor throat. Repeat as needed for cleaning.

Sea Foam Spray’s unique spray valve even works with the can held upside down so you can use it in difficult-to-reach applications.

So I just installed Pro Taper oversize bars with risers, and now my bark busters won't fit, as where they bolt, the OD of the bars is too big. Does anyone make a clamp that will fit on oversize bars? Or am I just going to have to make something that works?
