I don't know what your elevation is there. I'm at 1100' and run 168 main and 45 pilot. It runs great from about 65 to 90 degrees. When it gets down in the 40s or 50s my bike won't run until I go up to a 170 main and 48 pilot. The cold temp leans it out a good bit. Also have to raise the needle one notch. If its getting cold there this may be your problem. Anyone else experience this problem in colder temp?
what do you run for mods. all i have done to mine is the grey wire and a PMB insert. would that jetting work for my setup.?

ok so the other day i couldnt get my bike to stay running unless i had the choke pulled. everyone i talk to told me a clogged piolet jet was more the likely the suspect. took the carb off and cleaned it very well, took each jet out and blew air through it, re-installed it and still nothing really. it still will only run with the choke on and within 20 seconds or so the first 5 inches of the exhaust header are glowing. what could be my deal? thanks~
I'm guessing that the bike has been sitting for a while. Sometimes spraying carb cleaner and blowing compressed air just isn't good enough. What I do is I take a piece of stranded electrical wire and strip it so that 3-4 individual wires can be seperated and can be inserted into the pilot jet. With the wires inside the pilot jet spray carb cleaner inside and spin the jet with your fingers, you'll be surprised at the stuff that comes out.
Also, I just did a carb cleaning on my bike, I found that the accelerator pump diaphram deteriorated and pieces of rubber were broken off. I had to replace.
Also, make sure that when you re-installed the carb slider you didn't install the plate upside down, easy to do.
