Top 'o the World has some nice ledges
I got it jettet as we did it in may, and I've been at sooooo many different altitudes and it works just fine all over... I know I could get more power if I jet it for every altitude, but I'm traveling too much.
Did I say traveling too much? No such thing!!

See ya!!!

Had my first taste of Moab this summer ... can't wait to go back next spring.

Yep. 48 pilots. When I got it (from Oceanside CA) it was jetted with 48 pilots and 170/172 mains. It's a beast at sea level, but would hardly run at my altitude at home (7,000 ft) I wanted to change to 42 pilots before this trip but had to order the pilots and they came in only a couple of days before I left.


I'm also hoping the 42's will give me a little better mileage. On the White Rim Trail my fuel light came on at 109 miles I still had 35 miles to get back to town!

I want to put an odometer on the back wheel and compare. I bet the back tire went 160 + miles

I made it back- actually 37 miles with the light flashing. I still had some fuel left, so now I know....

Well I changed the pilot jets this afternoon- ditched the 48's the PO had in there and put in the 42's. MUCH better- starts better, idles better, and better throttle feel just off idle. Still not perfect though- she's hunting alot at steady throttle from around 3000 rpms to around 4000 or a bit more. I think the next step will be dropping the needles a clip. Right now they are in the third (middle?) position.

Anyone know if I can move the clips without taking the bike completely apart again?

I don't see how since there's no room to pull out the "gas-things" because of how they sit in the airbox...

I got 68miles after the light came on, coming back south from Prudhoe Bay. Then it died on me, just 7 miles from the gasstation in Coldfoot.

It'll go quite a ways on reserve..

See ya!

Digging up old threads here...Hayduke, did you ever get around to dropping the needles a clip? Did it rid the hunting at steady throttle?

I finally got it dialed! I didn't drop the needles a clip- they are in the middle position. I went with 42 pilots, and 150 & 152 main jets. It is super smooth now- the hunting seems to be cured, and I rode to Pueblo last Wed., running all highway, with bags and consistantly around 70mph and got 46 mpg. I'm hoping this is it- I'm sick of digging into the carbs. Keep in mind I live at over 7,000 ft and usually ride higher, and the bike has open Akropovics. I will be riding in Missouri soon, and I'm not rejetting unless I get there and it's running for shit. (I'll take different jets and I can now pull this off in under 2 hours, probably quicker if I tried.)

It runs soooo sweet now that I can't stop thinking about riding it.

Me too Duke!

I installed Head2Wind's kit he put together for me, with pre-filter. 145/148 mains and 68 IAJ @ 6000'. I am a bit lower than that but usually ride higher.

I will be taking it out to Iowa in May, so, like you, will be riding a lot closer to sea level and yeah, I will be bringing the stock jets and one size bigger just in case.

If anyone has need of a Factory pro jet kit let me know. I have one gathering dust.

Any updates on jetting & MPG.

I had my bike jetted at FM and they went way rich the first time (160/165), so I took it back and they went a bit leaner (158/162), but still richer than stock. The bike runs great in town but bogs and feels too rich at elevation (10K). And the MPG is abysmal!!!!

Bump!

I've got the bike torn into for an oil change and some maintenance and wanted to see if there were any updates before I put the 155/150 jets in the bike.
