Well,......if you guys didn't figure it out yet,...it's time for me to come clean. I am OCD,.....but I think in a good way.
My wife (jokingly) says that whoever "created" me, was making me gay, and at the very last moment, changed his mind. Because,.....I am very clean, organized, I love classical music, arts, I am extremely conscious about my looks (I work out daily, and have sixpack at my age), wardrobe......you get the picture. And yet,.....I can't live without women! Sometimes she says it was a "crime" for me to be introduced to military, because THAT just exacerbated my natural disposition (sickness).
Like I said before,......I live above 4000', I will ride this thing from there up (sometimes over 8000'), AND I am planning a sailboat trip to the Med, AND the KLR will go with me. I WILL need to adjust that screw periodically (4-5 times with one of them possibly on the boat, or in the Monaco marina, with parts hard to find). My thinking is,......screw the damn thing in, and adjust the mix whenever/wherever the bike might need it. But,.......
Knowing me as well as I do,....I doubt this bike will ever be dirty (except for a short time on the mountain), but I would not like this to get packed with dirt/grime. That's why I was asking this question from the gurus. AFA HD screw,...don't get me wrong, 35 bucks is nothing for me, but I see the same crap for 16 bucks, and I might be "sick", "OCD", "anal", etc. but I refuse to be taken for a sucker. I did not get here where I am in my life, by being a sucker. Anotherwords,....it's not about the money, it's the principle.
I also LIKE to wrench (it relaxes me), but I don't like to wrench more than necessary. So while this thing is in pieces, I might as well do whatever I think of doing to this carb. Once I put it back in, I'll never take it off again (I am pretty sure rubber boots will outlive me). It'll be either .22, or KLX,.... AND "enricher" plunger, plus the idle mix screw. I'll also drill 1" holes in the side of the airbox (dirty side of course), and go to UNI.
Now,.....I could spend some time to do more reading, but,.....since you are ALL so generous with your knowledge, I'll ask here:
What would you recommend in terms of jetting (all jets!) for the intentional use of this bike? And remember,...no racing, no "wild" stuff, no sprocket changes, and no changes once set up. It needs to work like a Rolex (NOW that's a stretch I know!) at the sea level, and up to, let's say 8500' without taking the carb out, and without screwdriver.
