Hey everyone!
So after 300+ km of testing, Iím glad to say that the XT is running properly and staying that way smile.
The new carb I ordered was for a TTR 225 and not the XT and there are actually some differences between them. When trying to simply put the new carb in there, the bike barely ran, seemed to be much too rich, as if always running with the choke on. It would idle but couldnít really handle any throttle input whatsoever. Although this new carb had some differences, Iíd say 95% of the parts were identical so I went back to the old carb and used the new one to swap parts. I ended up changing the choke cable o-ring and the diaphragm.
So although the new carb didnít work on its own, the sum of its parts still ended up being a very good deal.

Tractor like 1st gear yet capable of local highway speeds (cruise @indicated 100kph no problem), little thing is great!


Keep it simple
