I've found that it doesn't matter what you have on your bike, it matters how good you are, I've seen stockers go out there and smoke highly modded bike......To bad I'm not one of those guys

Ok,

I have been "taking inventory" on what i need.

I will post up some pics the week after turkey day. Those will be the before pics. About two - three weeks later there will be the pics of the finished product depending on how much break in time I can get on it as well as how long decal works takes to make up the graphics. We already have snow here in MN so its either take a chance riding on my track or ride in doors.

Anybody ever dealt with a boysen product called "power shot", it goes in teh accelerator pump on the carb.

BTW,

I work for a great employer who did this for me as a surprise/ christmas gift/ sponsorship. I was truly impressed when he did this. I work for a very small company and we do alot of business and this was his way to reward me for my hard work and 8 years of dedication.

Take care
Jeff

First off, your boss/company is awesome! I'm not sure I've even heard of a reward as cool as that one!

Quickshot - They do work. However, going with a smaller leak jet does the same thing. The quickshot costs $80-$100, a leak jet costs $5-$10.

Both require about the same amound of work to install.

If it were me, I'd go with the leak jet and save the money for something else.

Thanks Woody.

So otherwise, should I just leave this thing jetted stock? I am going to run the stock exhaust for a few rides and then go with the DR D or CHM complete system.

I am concentrating on handling/ suspension first by getting the suspension done as well as possible adding rg-3 clamps and OS bars.

Thanks

Stock jetting works rather well on the stock bike (go figure). Ride the bike getting it to operating temps and set the fuel screw to get the best throttle response (put "Adjustable Fuel Screw" on your list of things to get). If you're more than 2.5 turns out get the next larger pilot and redo the process. If you're not, set the idle and ride. If you remove the backfire screen go up one size on the main. Stock clip position should be #4, if the middle feels weak try #5.

That's your call. If you decide to switch fuels plan on making minor changes to the jetting for best performance.

Thanks Faded.

I have decided to leave the motor stock for 10-15 hrs for break in period etc. I am putting my cash into suspension, etc right now.

It has warmed up here,,,,going to till my track this weekend and break up teh frost and hopefully get a couple hrs on it so i can send the suspension in.
