Shift Star kit worked awesome! Not one missed shift all weekend. Easier to find neutral, too - Which is good because I have to put it in neutral to start it for some reason. Doesn't like to start with the clutch in. With the close ratio tranny, I did a lot of shifting.

patented HDJ MAJ installation for crf / wr / yfz
Keihin FCR carbs
Where's my main air jet and what do I do with that drill bit and tap that came in my Factory Pro HDJ kit for my Keihin FCR carb?
First step is to eliminate the fixed main
air jet restriction.
Remove the stock emulsion tube (that's what the main jet screws into) so that you can clean out the carb well. By only having 45mm to 46mm of the drill bit exposed, it prevents you from drilling too far.
Then, use the supplied tap from our HDJ carb kit, thread the
Main Air Jet (aka "MAJ") hole.
Clean the hole, of course.
After it's clean, complete the MAJ Modification by installing the supplied Main Air Jet and installing the new Factory Pro HDJ Emulsion Tube.
This modification is something similar to what we've done in
many different carb types over the years, though it might be new to
some who haven't used our "1.7-RK" carb kits before.
Why adjust the float height?
Changing the float height changes the level of the fuel in the float bowl. The fuel height adjusts the full throttle, 2k-3k rpm and part throttle cruise, as in cruising around town, trying to be quiet... To give a scale of change, if the bike runs well when cold, but gets a bit sloppy when fully warmed up, lower the fuel level 1mm (i.e. go from 15mm to 16mm float height - remember the float measurement is "backwards").
When do I adjust the float height?
When installing a
Carb Recalibration Kit tm.

The extension of the laboratory
for engines of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology was completed
in about 1935. Its architect was Rudolf Otto Salvisberg (1882-1940).
He had a successful career in Berlin but returned to Switzerland after
the advent of the Nazis. His architectural style was somewhat similar
to that of Erich Mendelsohn. The staircase of the laboratory is in normal
use but well preserved.
