    Carb for XT350

    Talked to a tech at Sudco today, as far as he knew, they never made a replacement carb for the xt 350 but they may have had a rebuild type kit at one time, but not anymore. We did explore the options of adding a single carb to the bike, but a new intake would need to be fab'd up. After looking at it and doing some measuring, I think it's highly doable. Then again I may just move towards adapting MegaSquirt/MicroSquirt controller w/ a small injector and make the bike EFI.

    Carb for XT350

    So in searching thru the XT 350 threads, I see references to Sudco carbs as replacements for the XT. My question is, out of all of them that they list, which ones are a replacement, or, do you need to find one close and make it work? Thanks ....

    Best GPS for trail riding

    Yup! thats the one I have also. With some searching on the net you can find free map downloads, usually by state. Its also nice that you edit the maps with this unit and then update/save them in your computer as well. There is also a handlebar mount available for $15-$20 or so....

    XT replacemnt part numbers

    I've been looking at aftermarket stuff as well. I've found that FMF sells a universal muffler/silencer that is forrest service approved and it only costs around $100 give or take. It comes with a new mid pipe and from what I can tell, should "bolt on". Plus its a bunch cheaper than the Supertrapp. Check locally for someone that makes brake lines. We have a guy here that can make any brake line you may need out of stainless braided steel. He made the ones on my truck and he was right in line price wise with aftermarket lines. He claims he can make them for any motorcycle....his claim, not mine. What I have found with the older XTs (mines a '92) is to check the salvage yards to see what is close, and modify it to work.

    I just changed to the 15 wt fork oil and set the air pressure in the forks to 10 psi. On the rear, I added preload to the coil over (2.5 turns) and set the shock setting on #5. It took all the mushiness out of the suspension and made a huge difference thru the dips and over speed bumps. It doesn't sag with my 9 year old on the back now. The true test will be this weekend on the trails. Granted this isn't really "beefing" up the suspension, but it sure made a HUGE difference.

    XT350 - Properly adding Shims??

    The best and only way to correctly read a plug is with a magnifier and light. Look at the base of the porcelin down inside the plug, you want a medium to light tan with no lead fuel. From the looks of the porcelin in the pic, IMO, it's rich, not way over rich, just rich.

    XT350 - Properly adding Shims??

    In my experience with 4 stroke engines (mainly automotive, just learning bikes) an over rich condition or improper ignition timing can also lead to overheating. From the pic, the plug looks rich.....

    So are the EX wheels a bolt on? I love the hooligan look, and was thinking about something like that for my XT.
