Bill,

Maybe you could better explain "Asia Riding"?

Jetting is sensitive to altitude, some describing where and how you ride would be a good start....

It appears that the tank bag is sitting on the fuel cap, and vent hose, is there something I cannot see? I would like to get a tank bag, but not sure how this will effect filling tank or vent line being crushed. Thanks for any input.

I have that tank bag as well. It has a zipper at the base for "quick release" when you want to take it with you or need to fuel. I have a shorty vent hose that does not get smushed by the bag although the bag will ride right up to your hose.

Not much mods on my bike..
Just the KTM cans..
for the time been... still running on standard jetting...Too lean!!

had been reading much talk about posting about the KTM jetting and air box cover lately.. But just don't know what jetting is best to suit Asia riding???
Any suggestion???
Asia got special "Asia air" we don't know about?

Elavation, and to a lesser degree temperature, are more the issues rather than what chunk of the planet you live on. And with a BST, were not talking a major spread of jets... even if you do live at 6K feet.
We got guys with BSTs living at high elevations that can hook you up with what works.
Of course, I'm assuming you have a BST equipped bike. FCRs are a little snotty about elevation changes... but not real snotty.

Thanks for your reply guys....

Sorry for the sloppy message....

I'm living in Singapore and most of my riding trip are to countries like Malaysia, Thailand, cambodia in South East Asia region and the tempreture here average between 25'C to 34'C degrees....
Just wanna know for hot weather riding, should I get a richer jetting for the cup or remain at the orginial jetting.
My bike is the 04" model with 1.2 and 152 jet set up.
I just ordered the KTM air box kit with a jetting size of 1.1 and 175....
I'm afriad this sudden raise in the jetting might be too rich and kill the mileage of the bike..
What do you guys suggest??

The 1.1 air jet, and especially the 175 main jet are both too rich for your bike unless you plan on running an Akrapovic full system and turning high RPM... in other words, racing.
What is a "cup"? A "can" or muffler?
You've put me (us) in a position where I'm making several assumptions but...If you will be running the stock muffler, and a hi flow airbox side cover you will want to:

1. Install a 155 to a 157.5 main jet.
2. Move the jet needle position clip down one groove (4th from the top)
3. Enlarge the vacuum ports on the bottom of the slide to 3mm. (these "holes' are on either side of the hole the needle goes thru)
4. Readjust your idle mixture screw and idle speed screw for best idle/throttle response. (mixture screw is at the bottom front of carb body. nominal adjustment is 1.75 to 2.25 turns out from seated)

These are fairly "standardized" BST40 modifications. Jetting is a variable based on exhaust and airbox mods as well as elevation and average temperature.

I've kept this as simple as possible as I do not know what your mechanical skill levels are.

Ops... The word 'Cup' should be 'Carb'.. My mistake again...

I'm currently using a KTM ALU SCHALLDÄMPFER mit ABE muffler.
So which air jet should I use?? 1.1 or 1.2?? to go with the 155 to 157.5 main jet...
I'm no racer... I'm just an average Joe learning the tricks of LC4...
Thanks Creeper..

I used to ride a Honda NX650 and I toy around with it's carb too... it is much easier to take out the carb of the NX compair to KTM....

I have read here that the 1.2 (stock) air jet works well with the 160 or smaller main jets. Try starting out with the stock air jet, that way you don't have to uninstall the carb! You can get to the needle by removing the tank and going in from the top.

We're all just a bunch of "average joes" here too.
As I can only assume a "KTM ALU SCHALLDÄMPFER mit ABE muffler" is some sort of high flow exhaust (I hope)... I'll say to try a 160 main jet and stock pilot air jet, for starters. You gota' start someplace... yes?
You may end up going to the richer pilot air jet, and may end up going down one or up two sizes on the main jet.

I can't tell you exactly what to use because there are to many variables, plus a slight language issue... plus I don't know your skill or knowledge level with carburetors.

To do the slide and needle, you need to remove the fuel tank, the black plastic top cover of the carburetor (hold the cover down when you remove the two screws so little parts don't go flying out) and remove the slide.
Remove the needle and and move the clip on the needle down one groove to the 4th groove.
Obtain a 3mm drill bit and enlarge the two air holes on either side of the hole the needle goes thru to 3mm. Use an X-acto knife to remove burrs, is any.
Put everything back together the same way it came appart, being careful to locate the rubber diaphram correctly and not pinch it... and make sure the needle drops down into the needle jet without binding as well.

Unless you need to change the pilot air jet, you do not need to remove, or disconnect the carburetor from it's manifold or air box. The slide, needle, main jet and low speed mixture screw are all accessable without removing the carb. You can access the pilot fuel jet with the carb in place if you have the right tools.

Hope this helps,
Creep

Hey Board_Bill!! Singapore!! Man super cool I lived in Kuala Lumpur for 3 years. Man, having a KTM to romp around in those rain forest would be wild . Hundreds of Km’s of Palm forest roads. Wow!! And Thailand more than wow

But my hat’s of to you, your a brave man riding a bike in Malaysia.
The "by the will of Allah" ride/driving that they do there has to be seen to be believed. Do ride with your jacket on backwards like all the locals?


Enjoy
Rob

Thanks for the info guys.... will change the jetting when I got hold of a smaller main jet...

I'm only hoping that this KTM LC4 engine is easier to get a correct jetting then the low compression NX650.... I had a tough time jetting the NX...
I can never get the correct jet for that NX camel..
The only good point is that the Honda got a very basic carb to toy with..

Will post the result when i'm done...


Thanks AusieRob... accidents is very common over there.. I few of my friends got a fare share of it...
