I bought a 2000 XRL here in Oregon for my brother and through the advice here I followed Daves jetting instructions. It worked out very well. A friend with a KLR rode the Honda before my brother got it and decided to get one himself. When I delivered the 2000 from Oregon to my brother in California we found a 2003 with 700 miles on it. It had California smog stuff and the Oregon bike had less smog stuff. We have gone through the same steps removing the smog stuff and capping the air injection holes below the pipes and rejetting to the same specs. THis bike will not run right at those jetting specs. We are back to stock idle jet with one up size main jet to get it to run decent. Daves recommendations are 58/155 and the stock Honda from California was 50/152. Any body got any ideas why it doesn't like the same jetting as the 2000 bike? Is there a different cam in the California bike?
