Just purchase a 1995 XR 600. New to ThumperTalk. Want some advice.

How should my carb be set up?

Bike contains K&N filter, Husky exhaust?(thumps low, loud reved), 13t front sprocket 48t rear. Otherwise bike is stock. Ride between 5000 and 10000 ft.

I ride trails in 1st thru 3rd.

Your help is appreciated

P.S. The bike hesitates sometimes in 1st when you get on it.

Sounds like you need to jet the carb for your altitude and drill the slide. Heres some info thanks to Big Dave...

I run this jetting at 100m (300 ft) to 400m (1200 ft) and it works great-

155 main jet- 1 size richer than stock
62 pilot jet- stock
airscrew 2.5 turns out- stock 2 turns out
needle 3rd (middle) clip position- stock
float height 14.5mm- stock

*You could use this jetting as a starting point and if needs be, got one size leaner (smaller) with the jets at a time.
