I just finish installing the NARK and D&D pipe on my 07 T100...

I was planning to install it myself after reading lots and lots of great tips here. But when they arrived on Thursday, I jacked my bike up and almost chicken out when I saw how tight the screw on the float bowl was...

I searched again for tips on this forum and saw one of you guys utilizing a thumb screwdriver... so I went searching at Sears and actually saw a mini-rachet type screwdriver...(I will post the picture later) and this works so well in removing the screws...

Ever with the helpful screwdriver rachet, I still managed to strip one of the screw... and now I ended up with a crack float bowl on the left side... (Anyone has extra left-side float bowl??)

Anyway, I started the mod yesterday evening (and had to miss Lakers vs Rocket game for this) and finish up late morning today...

I just test rode it an hour ago....

OH MY GOD!!!!

I didnt expect the power improvement with this mod...I know its going to be a significant gain...but man oh man... no words can described the feeling the first time I twist the throttle...:D

The sound was awesome as well... it sounded like a drag bike...
The bike now responded so well now... I am falling in love with my bike again...

To top it off, we had a gorgeous weather here in Portland...

I'm gonna nap now and plan to take my baby out again later this afternoon...

Thank you guys for all the great tips...

Im Lovin' it... :)

Now I know what you guys meant by "the grin"...
Took it out twice today and just love it... and I dont think they are "too loud"...

Jetting the main jet turned out to be as easy as unscrewing 8 screws plus 2 jet and screwing back in...

I didnt change the stock pilot jet though because its recessed in and I couldnt wait to put everything back together so I can test rode it....

The bike ran fine and there no "hesitation" or lag at all. Maybe with the pilot jet change it would run even better??
