Do not forget, you are also buying a triple taper needle, that is a large part of the package.


I'm no expert, but I have ridden my WR with an NFPP needle and a WR with a JD needle, didn't notice any "benefit" of having the triple-taper needle at all. I'm sure that if having a triple-taper on the needle was a significant benefit, the engineers that design the needles for these FCR carbs would have already noticed and put it to use.

I do not think the kit is necessary for those living in relatively flat areas(elevation speaking) and will never need to rejet. I think I have $45 in my jetting.


There's a lot of variation in elevation and temperatures where I ride, there's never been a reason to change the jetting at all. I think all it takes is to find a nice "middle of the road" setting and leaving it there. These bikes tolerate quite a bit of variation without complaining too much.

It's alive!...... i got it back together enough to start it.. and it seems very responsive!.. now just need to put it the rest of the way together and give it a test ride! :ride:

The unabiker radiator guards were a PITA to install... i had to run up to sears and get an extension and some allen head bits.

They can definately tolerate a wide range. Wider than any bike I've owned in the past.

OMG... i just rode it....
I can't believe how much power it has now....
its amazing... all it wants to do is ride wheelies.... makes my XR400 feel like its 100cc


the only problem i have is that when i started it up.. my headlight came on and then immediately went out... ... hard to believe the bulb burned out already...

I would make sure all your wiring is fully plugged in and the battery terminals are fully tightened since I assume you removed them when you took off the sub frame.

Check the big ground wire at the front of the engine just above the exhaust header.
