Carb help

Recommended Posts

I need to send my Lectron back so a leak can be inspected. Meanwhile, I want to get familiar with the stock carb and hope I can get some advice on jetting for my bike. It's an 07 300xcw, FMF Gnarly and TC2 silencer, V4 reeds. I'm at 1100ft here in the foothills of NC and just trail ride. I have zero experience jetting but I want to give it a shot....I read a lot about the Suzuki needle and the success guys have with it. I'm about to place an order with RMATV and want to include some jets and needles.

The overflow for the float bowl was dumping fuel before I replaced it with the Lectron. From what I have read, it is the float needle stuck or put of spec. Any help with that would be appreciated too.

Thanks

This is a copy and paste of a discussion found on TT.

"The float height for the stock carb that came on the 07' models is 6.5mm. Due to a somewhat extreme angle that the carb is mounted at, some KTM riders change the float height to 8mm."

You should check the condition of the rubber tip of the needle valve and it's seat too.

Suggestions for jets to order? Maybe a new needle valve too?
