I have stock jetting but I have done the carb mod including drilling the slide, shimming the needle and drilling out the EPA plug, and setting the low idle needle to 1.75 turns out.
It is not back firing at all so I don't think it is too lean.

Last one I had I packed with the stainless steel pack and never replaced it again as long as i owned the bike.
Now that you've had it installed a while, would you care to report back if you're still happy with the Lexx, how it's holding up, etc.

And after all, loud pipes DO save lives!



----------

Please, no explanation/justification/refutation; I jest! Enjoy your sonorous, melifulous exhaust note in good health.

The stock Briggs & Stratton-reminiscent sound's o.k. with me; glad you found what you like.

No problems yet, but, it's been winter, and most trip have been short trips to work and back.

Oldish thread, I know, but you definately can hit the lexx with the brake caliper on a KLR. Punched a real nice hole in mine with the bleeder screw. Dont have any pictures handy, have to get one later.

This is the first I've heard of this exhaust, so I'm interested in hearing more...

I really like it. Sounds good, without being obnoxiously loud. Done a number of long rides without it bothering me in the least. Fairly light, although I dont recall the weight. Looks pretty good too.

Taking it to a buddies house next week. Get the hole in the bottom patched and repack it. Didnt have my rear shock setup right and bottomed it real hard. Punched a hole in it with the bleeder screw on the caliper. Surprisingly enough, the bleeder screw was just fine.

Where i bought mine:

I have 2 coming in the spring. One for my bike and other for a buddies. I finally broke down and decided to try a slip-on to see if there was any difference between my low buck modded can and it. Besides weight. I have heard them and they are very close to the modded low buck can, so not too loud. This is the first I have heard about them getting hit by the brake caliper. What did it take to get it to hit the claiper?

Not taking the time to properly set my preload.

Of course playin in the desert while it was loaded for a trip didnt help matters eaither.

Think Ive got the spring set up now. Once i get it fixed, gonna play around and see if it happens again.

Just a thought? Does the LEXX can use the same type of gasket at the midway joint to seal the two sections as the stocker? OR do they have their own gasket?

Thanks
