Personally I run my lil 110 in everything class I can whether Im gonna be competive or not

What kinna carb issues are you having? I wouldnt think not having a filter would be an issue
Ok Its decided, not worrying about podium, just getting out there!

Good to know, just looking to ride.

This has been fixed by obtaining a stock air filter and cleaning everything involved.

I have been able to clean the carb and replace spark plug, and the bike runs ok, still a little bog in low rpm and wont idle, but high end seems strong. I am attempting to dial it in and possibly replace all jets before Saturday, but plan on being there no matter what. Not sure what your schedule or cost would be on the stock carbm but that could help me out if possible? I have the cap, needle assembly and cable so no worries there.

I have also decided to use my MX gear for the first race (including knee, elbow and chest) since this is allowed, but may pick up some zip in pants to go with my leather jacket if I can find it. I am dead set on making the first riders school to get my feet wet. I do have a few questions on the safety wiring, but should be able to get them resolved on line.

Will my bike not idling cause it to fail tech inspection, not sure why it would?

Just got done doing some starts and riding tonight for practice and am super stoked on the new season!

Besides gas overflow where else do I need a catch bottle?
Do I need to safety wire the arm on my rear brake?

You need a catch bottle on any fluid hose on the bike. On an XR thats Fuel vent and overflow on the carb and its the Motor vent hose which will spew oil now and then and the gas tank vent on the tank either needs the little dohicky in the hose or another way of cutting off fuel if the tank ends up sideways or upside down. Get to the track early Saturday to prepare for the school and some practice. If you need anything that I can help with please pm or email me. I have an XR that has some modifications on it and may or may not ride it this round. I have another bike I may end up using this round due to some parts not coming in for my XR. So if you need something I may have something you can use or have or whatever for this round.

Cool, so I found some good info on the catch bottles and safety wiring last year but cant find it now? Any links. When I safety wire my drain bolt, fill cap etc, as long as its attached to the frame somewhere to prevent backing out I am ok? I have drum brakes front and back, so I dont need to worry about caliper bolts?

I would think just drill a 1/16" hole through the very edge where there is no pressure containing part and then another 1/16" hole in either a radiator fin as mentioned, or just run it straight over to the frame and twist it on.
