Finally carved out a window to take a 45 minute ride yesterday on what will be our last sunny and dry day for a while. Between the newly installed Shinko 705's and the 35F0x can it made for an interesting ride.

The 35F0x sounds better than stock but it is not exactly what I was expecting. That said, I don't know exactly what I was expecting, but what I got was not it.

Anyway, it's not unpleasant, just different. And thankfully it's not too loud. In fact, it is not as loud as a DG can that a friend had on his DR before he sold it. I didn't like the DG sound so I'm pleased the 35 is more mellow. It does have a bit of a burble and pop to it on deceleration.

Do I need to re-jet after this? I"m running the factory carb and other than a drilled slide and a Jesse mixture screw it is stock.
