How embarrassing

So, it's been awhile since I covered my hands with the smell of various mechanical fluids. I have attempted to jet my little DRZ-125, and I soon realized I haven't a bloody clue as to what I am doing. Here's hoping it cranks back up when I get it back together again. I replaced the Main jet, and the Pilot jet if that makes sense. It was recommended to change the needle out to one from a TTR-125 because it has a clip, and is adjustable, but Yamaha want's $20 for that blasted thing. I'll go with what I have for now, and see where it gets me.

You're talking sense. Am I going to be calling you for that too?

All the jetting is done, and WOW what an improvement. Throttle response is mucho better, now I just have to sort out the air mixture screw, and get the idle up. It wants to shut off while idling. Along with replacing the main, and pilot jets, I took the Dremel to the top of the airbox and opened a 1.5" square hole to a 2"x5" opening. Now, when the throttle is twisted, if you put your hand over the opening, it pulls it down. It is getting much better airflow. Now I just need to sort out the exhaust, and suspension.

Might as well spring for the needle with the clip as you're going to have to adjust the carb again once you pipe it.

Yeah, you're right. Even the guys at the shop were asking why I didn't go ahead and put it in while I had everything apart.
