After Installing my FCR I had started with a 42 pilot jet. I turned my fuel screw all the way in and it didnt kill the motor out so I went down to a 40. I turned my fuel screw all the way in with the same results. So I special ordered a 38 Pilot jet and now if I am bottomed out on the fuel screw it slows the idle slightly, but the idle doesnt change after half a turn out. It seems insane to drop to a 36 pilot jet if one is even made. I have the new Pilot Air Jet from the rebuild kit, and I just today ran carb cleaner through and blew compressed air through the Pilot air jet Circuit to make sure it is cleaned. I droped my NCVQ needle down the 5th clip and still the same results. I am running a 158 main jet and the plug looks tan. I ride at about 4,000 feet elevation. I read on TT about people with DRZs taking the PAJ out completely, but havent tried it yet.

I removed the PAJ and put the 40 PJ back in. Sounds good to me at 1 1/2 turns out.

On a side note... it either floods itself out or starves for fuel when turning hard left at slow speeds. Full tank of gas and no its not a cable/wiring issue. Going to lower the float and see if it helps.

I have a similar problem with my pilot set-up. Which one is the PAJ?

The PAJ is the screw on the left if youre looking at the mouth of the carb from the filter side. When TT sells their FCR-MX carb kit for DRZ they recommend not running a PAJ.

On my other problem. I lowered the float to allow less fuel into the bowl and it helped, but it still cuts out if i dive into a left turn hard enough and I cant bicycle on the right tires. Any ideas? Lower the float more? How much is too much? Maybe my carb is angled too far forward?

Also, I see we are both running the NCVQ needle, I wonder if that is too aggressive for our pilot systems and letting in more fuel at an idle than we need?

i am running the same needle, i have an o2 sensor that i am tuning with -
i am about to change out the needle for a little to a larger diameter one . 1/8 throttle is to rich in my setup currently.
once i get it tuned in better i will let you know what i end up with
i am running a 70 pilot air jet i think with a 38 pilot jet.

Hmm it seems we have a common issue here.
