    My bike has a Gritty throttle?

    What are you doing to bend a billet aluminum throttle tube. I like this one:

    Yes, you can buy a new tube ( I suggest aluminum) and a set of grips or what LasVegasMx suggests.

    2004 CRF450R carb issue

    I'm always subject to be wrong but my seal came off with the flatter portion towards the plate as shown in this pic. A worn plate may be your problem. They can cause a lean situation and it sounds like that's what you have. It's something that'll help anyway. A worn plate/seal will also cause the bike to idle erratically and backfire/pop. While in there, see if the throttle valve or "slide" wheels have worn a groove in the track. That'll cause issues as well.

    2004 CRF450R carb issue

    My seal came off as shown so I reinstalled the new seal on a new vacuum plate that way. Your plate looks pretty dang worn.

    Gasket orientation on vacuum plate

    The flatter part goes towards the vacuum plate and the stepped part is out in the pic I attached. Imagine it was pushed straight down from there but of course it is carefully stretched on as Shawn mentions. It's pretty small so wear reading glasses or use a magnifying glass to verify you're putting it on right.

    Valve adjustment questions. 2008 R

    You could definitely make one on the cheap. It's not something you need often though it's nice to have when you do. You could cut a dado in one end of a 1x2 cut to 1 1/2" long and use a bolt for the pin. You could always forget the dado and just cut the 1x2 to 1 1/4" long. The bolt would need to be around a 1/4" and stick out around a 1/2" to replicate the MP tool. Regarding the V3, make sure you push it up near the cables end and that when you snug it it doesn't move. It'll still make a mess at the cables joints/adjusters/end so use rags as needed.

    I checked ebay and they have it for the same price ($22.49) as Rocky Mountain but free shipping on ebay.

    That's not nearly as accurate as using the right/2nd mark on the flywheel. Shawn MC is one of our resident experts so if he says to time it based on the flywheel, that's how to do it.

    Correction: I used the Motion Pro cam sprocket holding tool. That lapse in memory deserves two: . Sucks getting old. Can't believe I forgot that. It's much easier to use with the headstays off. You can squeeze it in there with them on but why fight it?

    Yeah, that's what Honda says to do and, again, that fine for valve clearances but not for timing.

    Check your timing using the right or second mark on the flywheel and the cam mark/pointer. The cam should be pointed to the rear on the compression stroke. You can use the right allen to turn the crank and the mark to check your valve clearances. I use blue Loctite and just hold the cam or sprocket as I tighten the sprocket. Cam sprocket torque is only 15/ft lbs.

    Another pic to show it's direction (not that the fiche isn't clear) and the direction of the seal (make sure to check it too).

    CRF450R maintenance

    I'd recommend cleaning the air filter often.

    My vote is to sort the carb out now then run. I wouldn't run it 5-8 hours with it only running with the choke on and "popping like mad". My $0.02.
