First Ride With New Jetting.

Postby jafo » 09:17 pm Dec 28 2004

Well the new jetting worked beyond my expectations. Big improvement. I don't know if the new fuel to oil ratio I'm running now helped with this or not but alot of the pinging was not there anymore. So today was an A+ ride! I did tear my seat cover today though, so I'll have to get a new one.

Did the improved jetting throw you backwards on the seat so fast that it tore the seat? :-)

I am glad to hear you like the jetting change. A little change can make a big difference when changing jets. It is definitely worth fooling with.
Thank you, Julien D for all your hard work!

PLEASE! Do not "dip" PWK Keihin carbs in Berryman's to clean them! It will damage the internal o-ring (jet block gasket).

Just a note....Changing the fuel/oil ratio will most definitely alter jetting....

I think I'm going to have to drop in the jetting again. The second day of riding the plug fouled. It was black as coal. I thin I'll drop one jet size and see what happens. I remember what everyone siad about reading the rings on the plug but when it's totally black, I'd think it's safe to say it's a bit to rich. It seems to smoke alot more than before also.

suggestions?
