Someone's been riding their KTM too much lately.

I guess could bump it up to a 351 and put that mikuni pumper carb on it and I wouldn't have to clean those jets.

Kinda the more expensive solution, but worth it IMHO

KLX is running like a top now. i did have to take it back off after rebuild, cranked and idled fine, it just diee when you gave the gas, so I took it off again, jets clean as a whistle, you can blow into a port on the air side and the slide should rise on these CV carb, wasn;t doing that, all that crap was cockeyed in the slide, fixed that and good to go.
