but He need to know the code of the needle and the jetting sizes
Because the carb is an HSR (originally thinked for an HD application) but is ever a TM42 carb.. or not ?

I have put this carburetor (HSR 42) on my bike for a short time and now have the TM40mm on it. I ran the HSR with 140 main, 25 pilot, 1.2 air jet, I went one step down from the needle jet and needle. Same basic setup that I have now on the TM40 27.5 pilot, 1.2 air jet, 140 main, y-4 needle jet, 9OJY-1 needle. The HSR 42 had a little to much of a pump jet. It ran a little wet (didn't burn all the fuel) If I had a cam and the 680 kit, I would go with this caruretor or the 45mm HSR.

It seems that the HSR 42 is a little big for a stock XR 650R... mhh is not a good news for my friend... :)
thanks for the answers

You can change the pump jet and make it work. But, you have to run holes in the filter cover, no back fire screen and a header and free flowing muffler would help. Then it will be tunable. My bike is about as free flowing as I can get it with out engine work.

No, I didn't change the pump jet because, I went with the TM40. It shure did hit hard with the 42HSR! I get the jets from a Harly shop.
