Thanks a bunch for the insight Krannie, I'm sure I'll be doing a jet and needle kit in the near future, but I couldn't just let it sit for another night. I went back out and took the carb off the bike and apart ...again. (I'm etting pretty darn good at this particular project!) Looking it all over, I decided to try bringing the float up a bit and that sure seems to have helped. A little frustrating when I was so sure that was not it to begin with!! (So much for "stock measurements")
Again, thanks for the help Krannie.

I just bought this bike this past fall to replace a much more tired old XR600. Funny thing; the kid I bought this one from said the carb had "just been rebuilt". The bike is pretty clean, but I would argue the float bowl and jets had not seen the light of day since the factory! It ran "OK" on a couple rides I got in during the fall, but I'm looking forward to this coming season and some better fuel delivery!
I'm just starting to research the jetting, so I'm certainly open to suggestions. I live in the metro Denver area and do most of my riding up in the hills west of here, usually around 8,000-12,000 ft, with a few rides each rear down at Rampart Range (around 6000 ft I think).
