No way! Those huge pilot jets are the secret to my power! :razz:Don't you think you're overdoing the pilot size a little? :-D
OK, how about 40 pilots, up from the stock 38s... I blame cut-&-paste for the error.
Jim, you're absolutely right - as are all the people who keep pointing out the bike has more than enough power already. :wink: It was more just surprise that there was so little difference between a drilled airbox and 120s, and pod filters w/ 130s. It just goes to show I guess that there's only so much extra hp to be coaxed from jetting and airbox mods.
The flat spot got bigger (leaner) - from about 15 to about 16.5... and it moved lower on the powerband - it now peaks at 4600rpm instead of 5500. Remember though that I also added pod filters and a new exhaust to the equation.On 2007-02-10 08:26, TBSstunta wrote:
Did you notice an increase, decrease, or relocation of the flat spot with the bigger mains? Did you put the pods on and run with the smaller mains before rejetting? How did that feel?
The air/fuel ratio is pretty even everywhere else, right at 13.5, though it climbs back to 15 at wide-open throttle. I could maybe use 132s or something, but I'm not sure it's worth the hassle.
I hope to eliminate (or at least reduce) the flat spot by raising the needles one notch - hopefully that won't make me too rich at 6000rpm.
So I've been reading up on the green cam swap, and I'm feeling a bit intimidated. It looks like there may be some valve adjustment involved, and a gasket or two to replace. As far as adjusting the valves, it looks like I might need new shims... where does one find such a thing? Anybody? Are they universal, or bike-specific? Where do people go for gaskets these days?
I'm afraid of getting the engine apart and then having to wait 6 weeks while the dealer tracks down the bits I need...
