A bigger pilot will help if you can find one. With it opened up that much, you might be able to get away with drilling it but I haven't been able to find a drill the right size. The next size up was too big for me. YMMV.
Another option(what I did) would be to take a set of torch tip files and gradually open up the pilot with those. You can only open it up a little that way, but I only needed a little so it worked for me.

A 130 main and a shimmed needle might be in order also.
Ok so I replaced the main with 130 today, shimmed the needle with one washer, and have it dialed out 3.5 turns and still has a consistently inconsistent miss at idle. Tried putting tape over the airbox and it tho it raises the rpm if I block it more, it doesnt get rid of the miss...I havent been able to get it to run smoothly playing with the mix screw either.
EDIT: So I tried putting a cap on the exhaust, about a 1" hole in the middle, and with tape over 3/4 of the airbox opening it barely misses. Looks like its time to ream out the extra pilot I have...

Also rebuilt the forks today, tried a heavier alternative going with 8oz. 10w-30 motor oil an 2oz. of Lucas stabilizer per side, (all of which was on hand) seems to be nice and firm and suitable so far! And no more spoolging seal!

Are you, or have you ever been, a KLR owner?

Totally different kind of cheap.
You can actually buy stuff for a KLR. KLR owners are just too cheap to buy it.

XT350 owners are FORCED to find creative solutions.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Nope, why?? lol

EDIT: Drilled the pilot out with a #77 drill bit, and it idles like a dream, and idles smoothly at 1500 rpm as well. No more end cap, pulls well through out. Problem solved!

Picture of new Bike

This is my 92 but color scheme is not correct. PO must not have liked teal? For what year is this the correct scheme?

'88 -'90
Might be something I'm missing that makes it one year or another.

So, is there any difference between 89 and 90? What did the 91 look like? I think we need a picture of an original example of each year. I have seen an image of a very cool black and gold but I am guessing that it is not original. I added the motocross swingarm decal but not sure when it was discontinued. I also added yamaha decals on seat. I will post updated pictures soon.

It looks like 89-91 are the same. Maybe mine is a very early 92 that was produced before they changed the colors? Keep the pictures coming of original colors.

1992

I think this is what a 1992 should look like. Does any anyone else have a red and white one? Send in your photos, it would be great to have all of the years documented in a row.

Go to the Yamaha OEM parts lookup and look at the parts colors. I did that a few months ago before I scored my '90. I think '89 to '92 is red frame and white plastics.

That's the exact color of my '93. I changed it to the early red/white color scheme in about '99. The red/white is the best looking of the bunch.
