Carbs Jetted ????

Ok so I have my bike in at Motorcycles Unlimited right now, they have fixed the problems I was having (stripped spark plug) and front tire and all that. When they started it up, it was "running rough". So they are now going to do some carb work (cleaning) well I talked to them about jetting the carb, and if it hasn't already been done, they are going to do it for me.

My question is, what will this do for me?? More power? Just run smoother? My guess is it will add some power. Anyone have this done?

I have a d&d so just a slip on.

I'm hoping it will be running harder. I have: new plugs, fuel filter, K&N air filter, D&D slip on, and now jetted carbs. Should be a bit better than before.

Jetting if done properly is a good thing, will give better throttle responce, and yes more power ,i would guess up to 6 or 7 hp with the items you havelisted, filter and slip on ex!

all in all you are getting more air and fuel in, also smoother throttle threw the rpm and all the gears!

not sure what or how Motorcycles Unlimited will test but will be a noticable diff if done right !

and i am sure Motorcycles Unlimited will get it spot on! you will be happy i am sure !

this is a complete different question, but why post another thread Does anyone know if the suspension on this bike is adjustable, I'm a tall guy 6'3" and this bike sits low. I like it because I can get on it with out is coming up, but then again it would be nice to be able to bring the ride height up an inch or two. It looked like at the base of the rear shock/spring it has a slotted sleave that rotates, never wanted to mess with it (not wanting to screw anything up). Anyone know wth I'm talking about???

While I was there I had my suspension set up, but I don't believe they did any changes to the height, of course I may be wrong. But the change in feel was great and the new tire also probably helped.

while your bike is at Motorcycles Unlimited pay the extra $25 for suspension set up. they will adjust the amount of sag, which may or may not adjust the height slightly. I am 6'2" and I had the rear really stiff as far as the preload on the sag, and they actually lowered my bike to better suit my weight, as I had it where it was not sagging at all. they also set teh sag up front, as well as rebound and compression damping. It is the most I have seen my bike improve for so little.

Motorcycles Unlimited did the same stuff to my F4 and it makes a difference. Not necassarily more power but smoother idle and running.

and plus 1 for the suspension set up mention by v4lu3s

Let us know if you go ahead with the Rejet! I'm looking at doing this along with a few mods to the 250 for grins..

BTW, does anyone know of a jet kit comparible to the Dynojet? Hear this one requires drilling in my bike?

Jared,
Your was on the rack being worked on Saturday.
Should have you up and running Wed. / Thurs.
With the K&N air filter and the D&D slip on and the carbs being stock it was definitely running lean.


Valkorin,
Almost all carb kits require at least drilling out the fuel screw anti tamper plugs.
No biggie, just don't press too hard so you don't go through into the fule screw itself.
On the 250 you have to enlarge the slide hole as well, just make sure to drill the correct one.
