G123, Glad to hear you've got it working better! It's always nice when someone summarizes up all that they did, and lets us know that it worked. From the sounds of it, you've got some crazy tough terrain over there!!! Ride on!! Maniac
We have awesome terrain - if you like to wear out first gear

So with all of that vegitation I can only wonder what the heat, humidity and bugs are like.

speaking of fuel tanks.....
I just filled up the tank (ride tomorrow -woohoo) after last weeks ride. bit of a dive in range since installing the new jetting (168 main and jd blue needle 1 from top and thin o-ring on the acc pump linkage). our ride was 40km and I used 6 litres of gas so I would have run out after 50km (32-35 odd miles) - thats less than ideal. Admittedly it took about 6 hrs to do the ride and 90% was first/second gear but thats probably going to effect our riding plans a little
maybe I lost a bit of gas while the bike was stuck upside down in a stream.....
I'll run another check tommorrow - but I'll put a spare tank of gas in the back of the wagon just in case.
