Dump the Edelbrock for a Mikuni TM40. No spares available for it as it's discontinued (so it is a timebomb ticking...), and the TM's a better carb anyway.

Full big gun exhaust was a huge improvement and the KTM fan mod really helps in the tight trails when things get hot.

sorry im not near the bike right now so im going off what i have but the plates on the left are the reinforcement plates that were mentioned New Michigan 650r owner IMG_0503_zpsbd8dc3c9

and im for sure looking into the other carbs but for the time being thats what i got
This weekend or the following i plan on mounting the new tires (shinko 244) im thinking unless any one has a better suggestion for mainly street but sees dirt as a weekend warrior

and from what i've read the uncorked was fine for exhaust because you start getting into the big gun and your looking at much deeper pockets (im a college student working in detroit for the summer) and from what i've read was not a huge gain in power but much more noise

once again very open to suggestions and pointers/tips let me know what you guys think  nice
