Would it be much easier to remove the carb to remove it.
Also for financial reasons am going to try Mike Trains' exhaust trick and hold off on a new pipe and header after purchasing the YZ seat and tank. I am pretty short and think this would help me in tight corners and turn arounds. Am I thinking the right way on this?
Any info would be appreciated, have a great weekend,

The throttle stop is straight down from the back of the throttle wheel and scews in from below opposite (straight back) from where the idle adjuster turns the throttle wheel (right side). It just looks like another bolt holding the carb together and has blue lock-tite on it.
I don't even thing removing the plastic guard is required. As far as I can tell all you need to do is rotate the carb to get at it with a "bigger hammer" if it doesn't come loose with an allen wrench... but I haven't looked at it in a couple weeks.
When you remove it you'll know you have the throttle stop since it seems rediculously long for the small amount of threads it has.

Something else I noticed is that the rod to the accellerator pump is protected better than the old carb and should keep the pump cleaner.

I must admit that I cut of a little too much. The valve opens past the opening about another 1/8"-3/16". I'll find out today I guess if this caused a problem.
Oh yeah, don't forget to pull the gas line.

I looked at the throttle stop last night (ok... so I was working on the bike anyway) just to be sure, and you don't have to remove the plastic cover over the throttle wheel.
It's actually pretty easy to find since you just look at the plastic cover and it sticks out the bottom of it at the very back. The pictures of how to do it on the older models actually made it take longer for me to find because I was looking in the wrong place for it.
