I've been reading all i can about how to jet and adjust the carb on my 93 KX 500, but i need a little advice from all you who have been doing this a while. When i'm riding easy from about 1/4 to 3/4 throttle, it's running kinda crappy (least i think it is)...kinda like a high speed machine gun and feels like it's only firing about half the time. My question is....am i running lean or rich?? I know i need to adjust the needle clip position, but since this is new to me after 20 years on a harley.....i dont know what lean or rich running sounds like. It idles pretty good and seems to have good off idle throttle response....and full throttle blasts are OH MY GOD! and sound good. so...any advice from all u experienced riders???
