I live a few minute from them, I would be more than happy to help you out

Edit: Talked to XR's only and they said around $80.00 - $100.00 shipping U.S. Mail plus the carb ($369.95). The shipping seem very high to me, I will check with UPS and FedEx tomorrow.

I have the carb on my XR and it completely changed the way it ran (good). The carb comes with stock jetting and they send a jetting kit with it particular to your elevation. I will check FedEx and UPS today for you

If you're at sea level it will come with 130/15 jetting and should run fine for you. Just set the pump come-on screw all the way in, bottoming the spring, and set the fuel screw for best idle/throttle response and you'll be good to go.

That sounds like alot for shipping.

Shipping to Bangkok (did not know where you are in Thailand)

UPS $200.00

FedEx $100.00

Makes for an expensive carb. Let me know what you want to do

If I was to add K+N Filter would I need to look at different jets?

K&N Filter & Jetting

http://i235.photobucket.com/albums/e...TAT2007045.jpg
I run a K&N on an XR426 w/Mikuni TM-36 @ 1000-6000' 130/15 jets, stock cam. Works great for me.

I'd go with the UNI filter before the K&N.

I've had both and IMHO UNIs are easier and cheaper to clean than K&Ns.

The UNI also filters better. If all you ride is street with your bike, then the K&N would be ok.

I think the UNI's, if ya grease the seal, give ya a better seal. The K&N seamed to have a pretty sloppy fit & ya gotta be careful to get it seated correctly. Just my 2 cents..........
