    Leak Jet and Starter Jet?

    Thanks William. You're a big help to aspiring do-it-yourselfers. As for the AP, if it bogs when you jump on the throttle, how do you know if it's too lean or too rich? Or do you only know that it's not right and go by trial and error?
  2. Can someone please tell me what parts of the throttle the leak jet and starter jet control? I was under the impression of the following: 1) Pilot: 0 to 1/4 2) Needle: 1/4 to 1/2 3) Main: 1/2 to Full But then everyone talks about the fuel screw, is this for idling? Or 0 to 1/8? Also, if my original assumptions are incorrect please let me know. Thanks all.

    The 1985 XR350R

    I still have the '85 XR350. Such an incredible bike. I used it as as my main bike all the way up to 2005 when I opted for the far less reliable ktm 400exc. Now I use it when my newer bikes break down, it's such a tractor. Of all the rides I've gone on it's the only bike of mine or my friends that never needed towing out for one reason or another.

    ~~Best Sounding Pipe. Period~~

    Okay let me clarify. I'm NOT looking for a loud pipe, just one with some good sound. I'm acutely aware of the issues surrounding noise. Particularly being in Colorado.
  5. Alright guys, I just picked up an '07 WR450 and it is a beast. I freakin love it. So I have one question for you all. What is the best sounding aftermarket pipe out there. And by best sounding, I mean I want it to sound like a Bell Huey on recon in the bush. Example Here (need subwoofers): http://www.sounddogs.com/previews/25/mp3/214954_SOUNDDOGS_He.mp3 Okay, maybe not exactly like a Huey but I'm looking to put the 'Thump' back in Thumpers. I've been told Akrapovic pipes are good but I heard one (albeit over the internet) and it seemed to be more of a growl. Any other ideas? Thanks.
