Holy Crap

Well, I gotta say - I just got done with my mods last night.

2005 950 ADV, 12,000 miles.....just bought the bike - very unmolested
Did canisterectomy and SAS removal.
Rejetted based on Sporting's advice:
I'm planning to ride 500-2000 ft, mostly
Just installed D&D pipes - which I love!!
Used the Factory Pro kit from Sporting.
168/165 mains, 3rd clip, 4mm float height, 45 mains and roughly 1.25
turns on the screws
Installed Sporting's intake system and ITG filter - which is a godsend
compared to the alternatives.

Bike rips!!!!!!! Starts very well, idles beautifully, pulls hard. Wow.....fun factor increased dramatically. Several years back I had FI 990's.....which had mods as well, but this current set up is way more pleasing.

Have yet to log miles and report back MPG and overall riding dynamics.
Oil filter also had the dreaded waves in it......so gonna send my case out to CJ Designs for a waterpump rebuild.

Anyhow, thanks SW - very happy customer here.

700ft Above sea level here.
I started out with the 175 mains and 45 pilots and was very happy with power, still got the same fuel economy as with the stock jetting. Last change was to accomodate going to CO in two weeks - dropped the pilots back to 42.
Big loss in power, but mileage stayed right about 35, or just a tad higher.

Hopefully this setup works ok as we will be going all the way up to 14k feet on some stuff I don't really want to ride on any bike much less a big loaded one

Ok, I'm lying here with a 12inch incision in my right leg, all slugged out on morphine. Had a revision of my hip replacement (rip out old stem in femur, bore out a thou, slam in an oversize spike).

My filter is sitting in the box in my garage, and my best buddy is gonna install it for me.

But I need to get a jet kit and block off plates. Can someone assist me with one-stop shopping for these items?

I am 800ft above sea level and favour clean running and good midrange over balls-out performance.

Thanks
Jason

Btw, I damaged the hip implant when I slipped on the ice WALKING THE DAMN DOG!

Incidentally, not looking for freebies out of this, just part numbers or a kit name so that I can order with little fuss.

Are you guys able to remove the carbs without removing either tanks with this setup?? that would be great.

Its should be possible to access the 6mm clamp screws with some sort of angled 6mm socket driver from the top. My filters are in the mail

You will spend more time with that than its worth if its even possible. Try just taking off the right tank. Its possible to do it w/o removing the left.

Tuning In

Started off with the following setup for SM Sport Riding and have a bad surge at quarter throttle steady cruise in any gear. 500 feet above seal level hot humid 80 - 90's weather. Starts and idles perfect. Rips at top speed and low rpm and mid rpm full throttle roll-on's, no stumble just raw power.

Original setup:
FMF cans
Part Factory Pro kit and Part H2W kit for my jetting
Main Jets 170R / 168F
Pilot Jet #45
Needles Factory Pro Ti needle 4 position from top
IMS screws 2 turns (Flex-Jet installed for easy adjustment)
Air Jet #70 as supplied by H2W to replace stock #50
Float Height 3.5MM


New setup tonight:

Already feels way better, on 20 minute evening test ride surge is 99% gone after raising the needles to 5 from top.

FMF cans
Part Factory Pro kit and Part H2W kit for my jetting
Main Jets 170R / 168F
Pilot Jet #45
Needles Factory Pro Ti needle 5 position from top
IMS screws 2.5 turns (Flex-Jet installed for easy adjustment)
Air Jet #70 as supplied by H2W to replace stock #50
Float Height 3.5MM

Was thinking along that line, but not sure wanting to play with needles little more before changing it. It's all different for each bike and rider, so I am working toward setup. It fun to tinker anyway.

So far so good, well get to tell more Sunday on a ride.
