    With the spacer and washer in place, you should be able to put the clip in the 4th.

    Agree!

    For example,there is an 08 R* silverado w-efi on cycle trader in great cond with 813 original miles on it in great cond listed as asking $4,795.

    Another example,I just bought a 2012 Silverado with 1,250 original miles on it from original owner in like new cond for $5,800 that had a $7,000+ book value
    at the time.

    When i sold my 06 silverado in 2015 in like new cond with new tires,tune up & oil & filter change that just turned 25k miles i had trouble getting $4k for with a $5,200 book value at the time.

    The R*'s do not hold value well but you sure get a lot of motorcycle for the money with the R* thats rock solid reliable & will 100k+ miles with proper maint.

    With the clip in the 5th and no shim or spacer(if it’s gone) under the clip, the real elevation is probably closer to a 3 or 3.5.

    Anyhoo, glad that worked out. Good on ya!!

    Road Star clinic for the win again!! My buddy ended up getting the bike for $3000 because of the issue, I moved the clip from the third slot to the fifth, problem fixed !!

    Yeah from what I have seen the best prices here in Canada on kijiji are in Quebec. The ones around the Atlantic region where Iive are still pretty high. I know the insurance on motorcycle in Quebec is quite high so alot of people are trying to sell. My cousin is in Quebec City and has mentionned this to me many times. I dont know if I trust him cause he rides a HD.....lol opps was that brand bashing.

    Where in Canada, I got my 04 for 2500.00 ca. Most of the R*'s in my area have been on KIJIJI for far too long, the only ones selling are in the 3000.00 range. I'm in the GTA

    I should have elaborated more on your question about an air leak. It’s pretty common for a leak to develop at the head to manifold flanges, from repeatedly removing and replacing the carb. I’m not saying it’s a sure thing, but it happens.

    Get the needle right, and the bike should at least work like it’s supposed to. With the clip in the 3rd and no shim(hopefully the fat spacer was there), it is so lean in the transition between the Pilot to Main, the bike will bulk and buck from a lack of fuel. If the fat spacer was missing also, the needle elevation is closer to having the clip in the 2nd groove. The closer to the top(blunt end)of the needle, the leaner the transition.

    I think(guessing) they probably used a DJ kit. The 180 DJ according to the chart in the Tech Articles, is just a wee bit larger then the Mikuni 167.5. If it is a DJ kit, then I wouldn’t worry about the 180 main.

    yes. Check the jetting stuff I added. Lean on the needle will definitely cause a bad stumble. Until the airflow lifts the slide and needed fuel starts coming in around the needle, it’ll run like crap.

    Yeah I saw that later. Hence the DOH!! There were several things I skipped over. Another was the sonic carb cleaner thingie.

    Worse case, with a little carb work and less then a C note in parts if need be, it should run fine.

    The clip in the third without a shim is way lean on the needle. The leanest anyone’s ever managed to make it work in the 3rd, is with the fat spacer and two shims under the clip when it’s in the third.

    I’d also change the needle and seat. I’d wager the fuel in the oil resulted from the oring on the seat being shot.
    I concur on the oring issue on the needle seat. Had that exact same issue with the wife's 05.
