I am not very knowledgeable about bike mods etc as can be seen from my question that I will now ask (with my head lowered). If you are going to re-jet your bike do you actually have to empty the tank first before you remove it so you can get at the carb.

nope, no need to empty it, but it would definately help if it wasn't all the wa full. You need to pull the tank off of the bike, and it's pretty heavy with a full 4.5 gallons in it.

Difference in US model Dynojet kit and European dynojet kit

Hello there

i have a VL800 here in Ireland and i wanted to Jet the machine for after market pipes and K&N. The Dynojet supplied here is only for US model none for European.

What is the difference?? Is there really a difference??
Can a plan be made ?

Can anyone help
Many thanks

Mechanically, I can't imagine that a European Vol is any different than one here in the States. Maybe your geographical location is what's making it different, the fact that you are much further North? And then in turn, the jets they provide for you may not tune it quite right?

Sorry, I really am just guessing here. Sure hope someone smarter than me comes along who can answer your question.

Welcome to the site... I couldn't imagine riding a Volusia on those roads in Ireland. I would be in heaven (assuming I stayed on teh correct side of the road. My last trip to your fair land was about 2 years ago).

go to Motorcyclecarbs.com and find their email address. They may be able to help you. Also what about a small independent motorcycle shop? They might be able to give you some fair advise.

Yes and No.

No, you don't have to. It does, however, make it much easier to remove the very wide tank without a lot of gas in it.

I can imagine driving a Vol, or any other bike, in Ireland. Only saw a couple of riders when I was there in March.
Drove on the wrong side of the road once, luckily I was out in the country, had just completed a Y-turn (yeah, I missed the turn off again!) :oops:
