XR650R carb question

Recommended Posts

Just finished rebuilding my XR650R.  Rebuilt forks and shock with Cannon Racing springs, new side panels, Pro Taper Evo bars, graphics, Zeta handguards with turn signals, new wheels and tires Tkc80, 4.3 gallon Clark tank, new shrouds, Baja Designs headlight shroud and lens with 7000 lumens Cyclops bulb, Ricky stator, Trail Tech Vapor etc.  Waiting on XR's only pipe.....

Completely uncorked before I began this round of work.

Now for the frustrating part, rebuilt the carb, cleaned and put in new seals.  Jetting 68s with 175 main. 

Now it runs like poo. Starts great with choke all the way up.  When I go to half choke, it revs really high and does not come down ...... any thoughts?  I am not very good at carb work ...... yet :)

Thanks to you both!  I ended up pulling the carb off and going back over everything.  Put it back together and back on the bike.  She runs like a champ now...... must have been an air lead somewhere as suggested....
