Wow what a difference!

Well today was rejet the carb day. Got it all done and back together about two hours ago, nice day temp wise, so gave it a good test ride and a little mix adjustment. I thought it was running good before....was I in for a surprise! Way better.

I put in a 132 main jet, a 32.5 pilot jet, and installed a new idle mix screw spring and O ring with washer. Checked everything and reset the float and replaced the float needle. I wound up with a 2.25 out mix screw setting. Anything more with the 32.5 pilot and it was running too rich.

The difference in the power is very noticeable from start to full open. Purrs like a lion on steady throttle. Sure glad I got it on the first go around.

I took my time and completely cleaned out every last orifice in the carb, took everything off, polished everything brass and cleaned the carb inside and out with oxalic acid, it is great for cleaning up anything non ferrous and stainless. Also replaced all O rings and gaskets.

And now I have a question, I took pictures as I went, took pictures of the tear down of the bike, as well as the tear down of the carb itself, so my question is, can I leave the pictures on my hard drive and link them here, or do they need to go on the internet? If I can get a bit of help with that, I will post a tutorial with pictures on the carburated versions that should cover 2001-04 at least. Unless it has already been done and I didn't find it.

Glad you got it sorted out Marty.

You can attach pictures here by cliking Post Reply and when the box opens you'll see a paperclip in the top line gray area of the reply box. Clik on that and add pictures in the window that opens up. When that is complete come back and clik the paperclip again and they will show up. Clik to add and they will show in thumbnail size which viewers can clik on.

Thanks Beezer!! Exactly what I was looking for. I saw the http link and was wondering if that would be the only way I could add them. Well tomorrow I will download them off the Nikon onto my hard drive and then photoshop them to a smaller size. Got some work to do lol.

Thanks again!
Marty

It's either that or load them into an online site like Photobucket.

Yes I saw a lot of people using Photobucket, but I don't have an account. Just one more thing to do. I'll do the kiss and load them from my hard drive.

Thanks again.

That's good news indeed.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.
