Pop after exhaust install

Hey guys,

Got a friend who just installed new exhaust on his 2001 sv650. He needs to run it down here, and atm doesn't have time to rejet it.

He's getting a popping noise mostly on deceleration, but some on acceleration and idle. Would it hurt the bike much to drive it 300 miles before rejetting, or should he just trailer it?

Thanks,

Tim

Yea, definately needs a jet kit. I was just curious if it would hurt a bike at all to run her fromt Dallas to Beaumont without the jets.

My answer would be "no it wouldn't", but most of you guys have a greater knowledge of bikes then I do. =)

new, higher flowing exhaust = lean condition 99.9% of the time
lean= backfire on deceleration

I would not run it that far! The new exhaust is allowing more air flow which means it now needs more gas. (Running lean) This can cause the motor to run hot, very hot with long high RPM's. It might not over heat but you want know until it over heats and then you're shot.

My .02 don't try it.

from my experience buy the factory pro jet kit and put the biggest jets in the bike that the kit comes with and set the clip on the needles about half way

It won't hurt it to CRUISE a few hundred miles. Just don't run it hard and he'll be o.k.
