If you are going to freshen that thing up, go to The ALJ set up with the pump spring will make that bog go away, you'll be surprised how well it works. There is a reason KTM, Factory Connection, Gibbs, H/H and other are using it.

check your float height/needle and seat, or little elves inside your carb with hammers

well since its an 05 and its paid off id like to keep it as a practice bike and ive got the quickshot accelerator pump cover already so if i get an 07 or 08 within the next year id do the ALJ to that, ive seen it and been debating it though. damn elves...
thanks for the input
