I've never got tired of the stock seat...

But then I don't ride it like a street bike all day, either.

Trail riding I'm off the seat often, picking my butt up for large bumps and jumps, pulling the front end up, etc. It's a lot of exercise and my legs are killing me so much I probably wouldn't notice if my butt bothered me anyway. So maybe the seat does suck but it's fine by me. I do know that the rear half of the seat is hard and uncomfortable for passengers. But I'll use the pad if I can ever convince my wife to hop on the back of that bike again...

Thanks for the info Joe I'm going to pull the seat off today (hopefully) as well as start to install the pipe.....I'll check out the underseat clearance, and take your info into consideration while I'm forming a game plan. I also thought the stock hole looked pretty good sized, but I've read alot of posts on guys getting more hp when they opened up the airbox some more. I have to say tho that being buried under the seat like it is can't be the best way to get good air

The po jetted the carb, and he wrote down the jet sizes he put in.....otherwise I prolly wouldn't believe it myself

It runs great with the 58 in it, has awesome instant low end response, and tons of low end grunt, and starts and idles perfectly. Thats where I do most of my riding, and the plug doesn't even look that bad considering......its a little dark, but nothing really even worth worrying over. All it has now is Daves mods, desmogged, desnorkeled, uni filter, and Big Gun silencer with stock header. I'm going to be sticking the powerbomb on later today hopefully

Its strange how different bikes can use such different jetting with similiar set-ups sometimes......I'd like to know how my bike can get away with it at 5000ft and another one can't at sea level?

Bikes are like women.......full of suprises

George, we can only dream of being as good as you.

Still trying to get my air/fuel/jetting figured out. Dave's Mod, de-smogged, de-snorkeled, K&N (which will hopefully be gone soon), and XR600 muffler.Current jets are 55/158. The exhaust smells TERRIBLY rich, and my plug is dark. I started at 2.5 turns out when I put the jets in and went down as far as 2 turns out and the plug was still dark.

Today I tried what Spud suggested for setting the mixture screw. Engine at operating temp, turned the screw in slowly until the idle dropped, then back out until the idle smoothed out. Doing that the idle didn't drop until about 1/2 a turn out and smoothed back out at 1 turn out.

As much I don't want to take the carb back apart, I'm thinking I need to go back down to a 52 pilot.

I'm at about 300ft, but surrounded by mountains, and I've got a 55 pilot and it seems to be very rich. Dave's Mod, de-smogged, de-snorkeled, K&N (which will hopefully be gone soon), and XR600 muffler.

The pilot mixture screw (PMS) doesn't lie. However, you should wait until after you switch to the different air filter before you finalize your carburetor jets.

Not really. These guys are all very much alike. There's some explanation for it; it's really not black magic nor sloppy tolerances.

One thing to consider is the possibility that what you see written isn't what's in the carb.

Another thing is that there are at least two different manufacturers of jets for these that I know of, Keihn and Mikuni, plus perhaps some aftermarket manufacturers, and the jet # can mean different orifices for each. When I say a "55" from a stock "50", I'm referring to the Honda OEM; I think that's the Keihin on this bike. Check this out for an example of how they can differ.

If the float level is low, it can lean the mixture, if it's high, enrichen.

What if there's an air leak somewhere, like where the carb mounts or the vacuum line? That extra air could offset the extra gas of a rich jet.

Finally, if these bikes were as full of surprises as women, how could they be so popular???
