Wow! This Kdx 200 jetting stuff is way more sensitive to temperature than I could have imagined. You may recall that that it seemed odd that my bike was starting on the first kick without the choke. Well, that was in 85 deg. at sea level with high humidity. You'd think it would run way rich, but seat of the pants feel and pretty plug said otherwise. This weekend we got our first cold blast---55 deg.---what a change. Took three or four kicks with the choke to come to life and then would never settle down to idle. Had to back the idle screw down and adjust the A/S. Only now have I witnessed throttle response right from idle in each gear---it's scary--- front end comes right up with a snap of the throttle. Question---setup 1990 kdx 200---pwk 35, 38 pilot, 52 main, cel 2nd clip---All thought this jetting was too lean, but perhaps the float level at 17-18mm richens the whole circuit---should I go leaner still on the pilot to get this response at 85 deg. ????
