Hey everyone, I know carb questions are beaten to death in these forums. Just got myself a 2001 volusia 800 yesterday. Thought it was a great deal and actually bought to clean up and resell. Only has 5,800 miles and in very nice shape. Mostly stock but does have some cobra slack cut pipes. Dont believe the carbs were jetted according to previous owner. Starts right up no problem and idles on it's own pretty quick after shutting the choke down. I know these run lean stock so adding pipes just makes a little leaner. It doesnt have any backfiring or any popping really on decel which is surprising, but still feel some small indications it may be a little lean and want to try to adjust the pilot screw a hair and see it it smooths out any. No plans to pull the carb, if I was keeping the bike I'd do a jet kit and intake and whatnot. It's not a comfortable bike for me so will be up for sale shortly. Figured I'd make a small tweak if I can but it certainly doesnt need it. Rode it an hour home yesterday no problems aside from feeling like it needs a 6th gear lol. Sold an intruder 1500 this week and damn what a difference dropping to the 800. Fun bike though. Previous ownder forgot he had the stock pipes and stock seats so I'll be going back to pick those up as well.
