Mikuni help needed.

Recommended Posts

I put a mikuni pumper on my xr and it seems harder to start now than with the stock carb, both when cold and hot. I thought this thing would make starting easier after a "get-off". Throttle response is great though, just tired of kicking til I'm exhausted.

Do you hit the throttle a couple times before kicking with that pumper ? Is it properly jetted ?

When TrailRyder see's this he will probably be able to help you more , he has the same setup I believe.

I bought it from xrsonly at the same time I bought their exhaust system, they said it would be jetted for that setup. I'm new to bikes, only been riding a couple years...not even a year on dirt yet, but a more experienced friend of mine said it looks like it is running too rich because of the smoke coming from the exhaust. I don't know if a rich condition would contribute to my problem or not.
