Reducing it 1mm helps with a tough starting bike also.

Actually having thought about it, using Borynack's mid-agressive shim stacks, I would add one face shim to the conpression stack in the forks and one or two face shims to the rebound in the shock if you want your clickers set close to the middle. Mine are turned in about 3/4 closed, which isn't an issue for me.

I really like using the thinner oils (3w) and have since started using 3w in my truck shocks. It requires more shims, but I think it works better.

Mine's a little soft too but for dual sport use with slow, often very technical trails it can sometimes be nice.

I wish my KTM had 3w. I notice it changes quite a bit while it warms up. I have to stop and release the air multiple times too. Only then does it come into it's own.

Hi Guys,
Just wanted to say thanks for the help with my jetting. The bike was running lean last December, but I over compensated. After double checking the float height (right at 16mm) I downsized to 70 idle jets and 175 mains. Still was spuddering so I pulled the air filter, lo and behold it ran great! So at that point, I knew I was too fat in the mid range. Long story short, I lowered the needle 2 clips and that put me right where I needed to be.
Thanks again.
Jesse

OK, that is a first. A vanity plate on the XRR.

I like it.

What do you think?

I have a new to me 2002 xr650r that has a fmf pipe with the stock headers.
Will a fmf powerbomb header system make a big difference?
The bike runs great at this time !!! Thanks

You probably won't see much from a header until you;
open up the intake, carb and valves, open up exhaust valves, up the compression, and perhaps the bore, more agressive cam,

and then the you will probably only notice the difference in the upper end.

I would spend money on other things. The header was the last big item for my bike after rebuild everything else.

Motor mods are highly over rated, suspension is where its at.

I have the powerbomb header but cant' say for sure what it does by itself since I put the exhaust and header on at the same time. Really opened up the high end with those two additions though. Before it wouldn't labour at highway speeds, but felt more like torque than high HP. Now it feels like HP easily maintaining and enjoying that speed.

Not sure if that makes sense.

The downside to the Powerbomb is it shares the same diameter pipe as their standard header, just much thinner. This causes heat to radiate off the thing. It gets SUPER hot. With proper pants it's fine, but I've had the pleasure of riding it with shorts (yea yea, I know. It was on my trip where gearing up wasn't really an option) and it damn near cooks your leg. It does give you a mild burn even holding your leg out in the wind. In hot weather I do this even with boots/pants to keep my leg cool, although the heat is much less noticeable.

Jesse,
if an engine 'spudders' then it is running really rich, and the solution is to reduce a jet, not merely dropping the needle. It may feel fine now but I bet it still runs rich, your exhaust telling telltales.
I'd put in (with clean filter, set valves etc) the 68S, set the needle to 'mid' and drop the main size-by-size until you feel it is too small - then use the averaged size with your current one which should put you in the ballpark. Only then finetune the needle.
Of course this is a rough way of jetting, the best is to hook up an analyser on a dyno, however it will work.
