Hey Yall.

For those who don't know me, I got 2 650Ls ('05 and '07)

Stock carb.


Since I have only 2 circuits (pilot and main), what throttle pos does the pilot work in and when does the main kick in??

I'm guessing the pilot works to 3/8 throttle...??? The main kicks in at 1/4...???

pilot and idle circuit are first 1/4 throttle, Needle (your 3rd circuit) is 1/4 to 2/3 or 3/4 range and Main is 2/3 or 3/4 to WOT. Where the main takes over completely has to do where you needle is, this is why the washer in the daves mods. Most every other carb will have an adjustable needle with about 4 to 5 clip positions to fine tune AND thats what the DJ kit has also for the L.
