New XR650L

Just bought, this Honda really pops a lot on deceleration. I want to leave the bike stock for now to avoid any warranty issues. But I would like to richen up the mix to stop the pop. The Idle screw has a tab on it. What's the best approach to richen her up?

Ritchen her up. Best mods to do are the Daves Mods. Do a search. I would not wory about the warranty on this one . Oh and smog removal.

What I did was, I left the tab on the screw, and filed the tab on the bowl- that left me with the tab on the screw as an indicator/handle.

A small file, and you can file the bowl on the bike.

you should also rejet/shim the needle at the same time.

Filing of the bowl is done and the bike is much happier now. Also put on the Performance design lowering link. Whoo hooo I can feel the ground again.

Thanks for the help

After lowering the rear, did you raise the forks in the triple clamps then to lower the front ?

Yes, lowered the front just over and inch, handles great.

daves mod and removal of the smog/charcoal canister..... it will take that pop right off. i posted a great link for daves mods and the removal about a week ago... search for my post and its very easy.
