    Mrs. RC51 bought some truffle salt recently at some frufru market. I bake the good old russets in the oven with olive oil on the skins and salted on both sides with the truffle salt..... just add toppings and you'll be in heaven.

    I was skeered the first time I took a carb apart, too.
    I bought a jet kit from Kientech, the DR specialist in SW Oregon, after buying an FMF for a DR200. Basic instructions were easy to follow, and it was nowhere near as bad as expected. I also found a proper service manual on eBay pretty cheap, takes away the surprises of taking the suspension apart.

    doggitter,

    Here is a generic carb tuner help, written about a Mikuni 2 stroke carb but the basic functions are the same. http://www.iwt.com.au/mikunicarb.htm

    Also Pro-Cycle in Springfield is a valuable resource for all things DR.

    $4.00 Bloody Mary's and a borrowed chain saw sounds like a horrible combination.
