Hey Skoot, I was sweating the rejet process bad, Carbs have never been in my comfort level. Turns out it was all for nothing, the hardest part about the jet and needle kit is getting the dumb ass carb out..... and then back in, it's tight in there! The whole process NOT including removing/installing the carb took all of maybe 5 minutes. The difference in the bike with the Muzzy alone is barely noticable other than the sound, but couple that with the rejetting and man oh man this is one super fun bike!! This is the first day I have had with all the mods and it isn't even close to being the same bike. Don't wait another day to get that carb taken care of, you will most pleased with the results!!!

A little fun at the OHV park

I spent the day at our local OHV park Rocky Ridge near Slidell, TX

I didn't have anyone to take pics of me riding but here are some shots of the park. It's got every type of terrain you could ever want from wide open fields to deep woods on steep hills.



Wonder why they call it Rocky Ridge????



This is way steeper than it looks in this picture. Almost straight up at some points but the little KLX just chugs right on up.











There's a dry creek bed at the tree line that's full of fun trails and jumps.



Two years of drought not so good for the lake but good for riding! Lots of deep sand.







The little rock face in this picture is also way steeper than it looks. Almost straight up and a real challenge on the KLX. You have to hit it just right and then gun it when you're standing on the rear wheel at the top because there's another whoop just beyond the top.

This park is 56 miles from my house. I love the fact that the IMS tank lets me ride there, play all day, and then ride home.

Nice Pics BMWHD! I was thinking of getting the black IMS tank, but I like the looks of the white. Where did you get you ADV stickers?

THAT'S RIGHT! 152 miles and NOT ON RESERVE YET!!!!



Here's a picture of the remaining fuel after 152 miles. It's kinda hard to see in the picture so I marked it:



There's at least one half gallon left in the tank.

My bike gets between 52 and 58 mpg depending on conditions. Today I fought a 15 knot headwind for half the trip so it was closer to 52.

I'm now confident to ride with my friends on their big dual sports without holding them back due to limited range.

What petcock did you use?? How bout a picture of it to show how well it fits!? Thanx for the great input on this thread

Nice pics dude!

Next time, try setting your camera timer. Then run to the bike, put it in gear and wheelie off just in time for a pic.

Sucks riding by yourself, huh? When ever you do something cool, yer like, crap nobody even saw me do that and I'll probably never be able to do it again!

Keep 'em coming. Randy.

well that rear fends from UFO didnt work.(endro universal).i would have had to cut the rear sub frame benind all the rack mounting X-brackets.the fender was to narrow at the back.i didt get the muzzys on and im running a 14/50 gear with an x-link chain.with this gearing you will need a new chain and the low sproket guard will need gouging.
i was out all day and what i did with the dyno jet kit is a little different then most.im on the 3rd slot on needle.3 turns out.and i didnt drill the slide.and works better(what i feel)then my friends bike that drilled and 2.5 turns on air.better im saying it throttle response.

Here you go. I used the stock KLX300 petcock. It sets behind the OEM petcock position but it's not too hard to reach. I'm going to cut off the OEM petcock mount as soon as I pick up some silver touch up paint for the frame.



Note, the angle of this picture makes it look like the petcock is near the choke. It's not really. It isn't close to touching anything.

Looks great, Thanx. I thought it was a little expensive if it wasn't going to work but this will make it worth it. Thanx again!!
