Thanks for the replies. Looks like I will do a tear down this wknd. Hard to imagine any dirt in carb as its been cleaned recently, and I am using an in line filter since the new top end in March.

SS: The polishing worked great for me. I havent had this issue since I did it until now.
Doug: Are you still running the oem PWK? We may be the only ones left.... :hmm:

Yes, still using the stock carb. An RB is probably my next move.

Yeah, that was a cool little tip that another member posted years ago. It saved my butt before!

BTW, my carb is original but been modified by RB.

I did check in with him a few months ago and heard he's not doing the mod any longer. Only way is to buy a new Keihin from him. I dont think Im at that point-yet!

I think I am leaning toward RB AS carb.

- Please let me know if I have this about right:
Both type of RB carbs start from stock Keihin bodies.
AS - a bit better for riding that puts the carb at extreme angles.
OEM - a bit better riding at WOT.

Primarily I am riding trials-ish 1st gear trails at home, and the single track or jeep hill climb trails at Walker Valley, WA (roots, rocks, & concrete blocks). Elevation: 0-2000. My riding inclinations - I am considering switching to trials tires.

Thanks very much for seat polishing and other tips. The floor, in KDX section of the boat shed, looks a bit like an AMF Harley running synthetic oil lives there.
