I modified the CS-sprocket-cover so I dont have to remove the gearlever when changing sprockets. So yeah, a 5min job aswell.

G600:

I like it, is not a big difference...Well hard to tell anyway. Did the modifying and the jetting over a long period, where it slightly improved from time to time. So I didnt get a big difference just bolteing it up. But it seems better. Also, I got my stock carb tuned in very nicely with a lamdba probe/meassuring-thingy... I actually needed to lean out the mainjets in it. I guess the difference would have been better if I'
ve left the stock carb, well...stock


My bike has almost 120.000km on the stock motor, so compression might be down a bit, which I guess isnt too great with 2x cv carbs. Im sure theese carbs would respond well to an oversize higher compression piston.

Id do it again, I only regret not doing it before i spent a small fortune jetting and dynoing the stock carb.

Stock to ninja carb

My stock carbs were not tuned at all. I decided not to waste any time with them and went straight to the ninja carb and I have found there is not a heap of diferance when wide open throttle but there is a huge improvement everywhere else so I am very happy with my change over I just have a little backfiring on deceleration so I will go to a #40 pilot and see how we go

After reading what Jens had discovered from his dyno runs ,I made some changes with awsom results. I am running K&N pods and have had a lot of midrange issues. I am running a 135 in the primary and a 130 in the secondary. I raised the needle all the way in the secondary and wala! Mid range issues are gone. Pulls great from idle all the way to redline. Great throttle response. The exhaust note even sounds different. I still may be running a little rich on top but with summer heat that my be a good thing. Thanks Jen!

Footpegs

Bosley,

I love the footpegs, I haven't gotten the bike finished so have not ridden with them, but they feel great sitting and resting on them. Finish is great, look very strong and durable. I am anxious to try them out.

I've got an answer I don't think anyone else has given: the second pic is just 4" plumbing pipe (abs or PVC plastic) with one end cap and an unscrewable clean-out end cap. You can make them yourself at the hardware store from parts they have for sale, and make them any length you want.


I've also got a question. What are some opinions on the use of a K&n filter on an otherwise completely stock bike? That's how it came to me. I like the quiet of the stock exhaust and the ease of cleaning and re-oiling of the K&N filter. I know about the performance issue of it needing to breathe easier on both intake and exhaust sides of the engine. Is this stupid? I know about bidegradable-oiled 'no toil' brand filters from a pal who used those on his lot, they are foam, would I perhaps be better off with one of those?
