KLX110 replacement carb

I can't, for the life of me, get this bike to idle. After it warms up the idle hangs and sometimes won't ever come down. Other times restarting it will. Sometimes it comes down on its own. I'm tired of messing with it, and just want to replace it. Short of paying the dealer's absurd pricing for a factory carb, what options are available to me?

air leak? clogged pilot? idle adjustment? air/fuel screw adjustment?

I'd say your jetting is probably off or your boot/manifold is leaking.

my suggestion is get you a gallon of that carb cleaner dip. They sell it at the auto parts. take it apart all the way and soak it overnight. Put it back together and it should be just fine. No reason a carb would go bad unless you have an air leak or something is plugged.

Jetting is original, and the bike is stock

I've replaced every single gasket in the intake tract so it shouldn't leak

I've endlessly with the idle adjustment to no avail

Been through the carb twice now.

First:
check the air leak by spraying some carb cleaner or wd40 around the manifold. Hanging idle is generally an indication of a lean condition.

Second: work with the air/fuel screw. When you get that correct, you will know whether or not you have the right sized pilot jet. Then rejet and repeat, or adjust your idle to proper speed.

EDIT:

or...

THIRD - borrow Chad's carb or wrenches.

how's the fuel screw set? I picked up an xr-100 for my girlfriend and it was missing the fuel screw. It would run, but not very good...high, hanging idle that would sometimes come down and I had to constantly adjust the idle screw as it warmed up. Once I got the missing fuel screw and adjusted it, it runs perfect now.

Stock airbox with the rubber baffle that sits in the frame yanked out.

Air you talking about the vacuum cap on the intake? If so, its brand new.

If you're talking about the house that connects the carb to the airbox, I didn't see any cracks when I inspected it.

You're just too far away!

I don't think either of us is going to be at GSS next weekend.

To be perfectly honest, one of the primary problems is that I don't know a thing about carbs. I can disassemble, clean, and reassemble easily enough but I don't have a clue what any of the parts actually do. So I just twist the two little screws I can get a screwdriver on till it idles at an rpm I like. That's about all I'm capable of doing.
