I finally got my XR back on the road with the new carb. It took about an hour to jet it and it runs much better than the stock carb ever did. I also got rid of a bunch of vaccuum and emission hoses which is great. I would recommend this switch for the price.

Put the mikuni on and give it a try. I'm running one on my L, and am very happy I did over the stock one.

what jets are you running on yours? did you have any tunning issues with it?

My old xr650l had a cv carb with dave's mods. It ran perfect with no bog or dead spots. I wish I could get my mikuni t38 on my xr600 to do the same.
