Xr400 pumper carb

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I just installed mikuni pumper carb on my 1999 xr 400. Performance is much better and starts easier if not dropped. 

 However I dropped the bike a couple times today and when starting it afterwards I ran into same problem as my stock carb-many kicks-too many to count, and lot of wasted time and energy to get it to fire up again.  

Anyone have same issue? If so, any thoughts on how to get it started easier after its fallen on its side? Thanks

I hold the decomp lever, wide open throttle and kick thru several times to clear it out.

Unlike the stock carb in which it doesn't like any throttle input during the starting kick, the Mikuni responds well to it. Either wick it open slightly at the bottom of the starting kick or hold it slightly open during the kick.
