Looks like it would be a blast on gravel roads. Makes me want to build a bike.

tuning needed but still REALLY fun to ride.

I posted this on Dotheton so I thought I would share.

"I have done quite a bit of searching but have not found the info I need. If you have a minute to help me out I would appreciate it. My bike is an 81 xs400 with vm30's I am running K&N pods and 2 into 2 exhaust. I am running 150 main jets and 25 pilots. The air screw seems to work best at 1 turn out from stop. The clip is on the middle slot on the needle. I enclosed some pictures of my setup. I also have a link to a video of the problem In the video you can see if I blip the throttle from an idle id stumble and or dies, but If I blip it from a high idle or slightly higher rpm it gives me much better throttle response. at all other RPMs throttle response is decent. Any help would be appreciated. I just didnt want to spend any unnecessary money on jets in the wrong direction. Thanks again. Let me know if you need more info."

to me it sounds as if you are running to lean of the bottom , try a 30 pilot then play with needle and
air screw settings... there is another adjustment... the emuntion tube , the brass tube with small holes
the main jet screws into.. ths tube is for primary vacume to assist the carb to lift the fuel at
low vacume/low rpms , the vacume around this tube is adjusted by the air screw (mixture screw as some call it)
There are diffrent tubes with bigger or smaller & number of holes if all ealse fails you may need to try
a tube that gives a diffrent amount of vacume.. Raising the fuel level in the bowl can help so the fuel hasn't got
as far to lift.. ( the same carb on 2 diffrent motors can have diffrent fuel levels , its a setting)
two other adjustments are...
Needle tapper ...
Diffrent slides that have a diffrent cut away angle...

The pilot jet / needle / air screw these usealy sort the prob....
just try lifting the needle..get the needle jet working at slightly
lower vacume/rpms.. see what happens..

PS...
Those air filters are not good either , they slow the air flow down..

Really nice build, If you dont mind sharing resources, where do you source pre-bent pipes?

I could use these on my projects.

Thanks for posting the link to your build thread here. Really like the styling of the bike - what a neat machine.

Sorry if I missed the answer but what gauges are those off of? How hard were they to wire up? Any details would be appreciated.

Thanks. The gauges are from trailtech.com. This model is the vapor. They are super simple to hook up. I added the indicator lights so that made for a little more wiring. If you just o with the basic dash it's just one wire for the tach, one for the speed and one for engine temp. Plus 12v. The unit is self powered if you don't feel like hooking the power up. All wiring instructions can be found at www.trailtech.com good luck.

looks to me that those are 2 stroke carbs.no accelerator pumps?if no accel pumps you will never get rid of the off idle stumble.

I made a few adjustments and changed the pilot jets now it is running nearly perfect.

Just a side theory,,, but,,, if you make a couple shields for the air filters it may help overall run-ability,
with the exhaust placement and the hot air of the motor (Both variable) the potential air temps going into the motor will be all over the place, and heat definitely changes effective mixture. If the guage cluster unit you bought has a extra input or two I'd add a intake temp sensor and a exhaust thermocouple. Instant tuning assistance.. Temp sensors are < 20 bucks if you shop...

Great lookingn bike BTW>.. Like the mix of flat track, moto and Old school Steve mcqueen in there... :)

Great looking bike, i have updated my XT250 to a XT350 engine plus loads of other updates updating it to a WRXT 350X Supermoto, Have you kept the original Carbs & did you need to upjet them for the filters & pipes as i am doing the same & need to know what jets to fit ?
Hope you can help
