Good Morning everyone.

Two days ago I adjusted the valves on my 2013 TW with 1200 miles on it and did the carb pilot screw mod. All went very well. After drilling out the plug I turned the pilot screw in to see what it was set at and start from ground zero. It turned in 2 full turns. I turned it out 2 and one quarter turns. The engine idled at 30rpms more than prior to the adjustment. Has anyone done this mod and found the screw turned out 2 turns from the factory?

Also, I have a 20oz. MSR fuel bottle I am considering using to carry a little extra fuel with. I don't wander too far from home. With casual trail riding how many miles might I get out of 20oz. I realize any estimate would be very subjective but would like to get some feed back.

Thanks, Mark

Fine tuning the pilot screw is common on these bikes. Assuming that you are getting 50 miles per gallon, you should be able to get almost 8 miles from the extra fuel. If you run out of fuel, you can lay the bike down on its left side to transfer a little more to the petcock side if you get really desperate.
