what a con-jetting Qs
Posted December 01, 2003 - 12:28 AM
but most of all people have come here to learn about how top prepare their bikes better, as we all knowe they DON'T come from the factory perfect. most people want a bargain or summit fer nowt. this site used to supply it.
but if ever a thread epitomised that growth it was 'Jetting Qs'. the research is about 90% by me with input about 80%. at the time 200 posts was considered one of the longest threads going on a technical subject. it took us nearly a year to get it archived after a helluva lot of pestering. even then we couldn't stop people adding what amounted to a load of jibberish on the end. no disrespect lads but you did get the feeling that the thread warranted better.
someone should have had the guts to cut everything off from post 200+. but it doesn't fit "nicely" with the way gruppenfuhrer claus and his cronies wants things done does it!
it doesn't tie in with selling goodies, it means you could sort things for yourselves! whatever next? it doesn't tie in with JD's needles because i clearly state that there is nothing that can't be done with a standard needle and a bunch of jets. (no offence to you JD)
better to let people post all over it and then when nobody is looking-drop it quietly. in the meantime making sure everytime you try to open the thread; make sure it's unavailable.
what were the pistols last words? you've all **** ******!
shame on TT. this is the thanks you show to me for what i did. if i'd been from kentucky or calafornia would it have made a difference? i think so.

It has been quite awhile my old friend!
Do you still have your WR...I thought you sold it for a Husaberg(?)
There are still some of us "Original" Thumpertalkers here, (albeit far & few) back when we had 150 members. What are we up to now in members... > 20,000??
These last 19,500 guys probably don't know that Thumpertalk, started under Bryan H., was all about the jetting on the 1998/1999 WR400! The dealers didn't know anything about this bike! It was like the bastard (brother) of the YZF400. No one knew...and no one cared!
TT has come further than any of us "Originals" could have imagined...at least in my opinion.

you should have been around "directing " people then!you dont post for months and then come in swinging?

Get over it. You did some good research, got some good results and that is it. Frankly, the babying you are doing makes you really seem like an ass. I would suggest going over to the Jetting forum, printing out your beloved post, eliminating the last few pages and wallpapering your bedroom with the rest.
Good day sir.

90%??? That's a stretch.... well, okay I'll give you 90% (or even 95%) iffin' yer countin' pure windage.
Anyway, I bought JD's custom needles for my bike and I would have to say that they represent the culmination of all of the research and testing and are absolutely a plug and play application. All the newer TTers will never know the toils that got us there. Thank you very much for your part.
... and nice of you to drop back by.

I think things have changed a bit... The off-topic sections of TT have really become a big thing, it turns out that many members want to talk about politics than the flat side Keihin carbs..
Taffy, great to hear from you!! It's not the same without you!!!!

Man, you are WAY too serious... Nobody pee'd in your Cherios intentionally Taffy. The jetting forum seemed like the most fitting place for the thread, as to benefit the greatest number of members possible. But, all is well with the world now, as the thread is home where YOU feel it belongs....

and in your first post i thought you were being so unamerican and then you go and spoil it!
kev-good to hear your about still but you really must try to get another life.
when something no longer works for you you should move on-right?
you can always trust the americans to put an argument on a higher plain can't you. how does it go? very good lads.
see you soon.

Actually most times when I read posts from ego ahole, taffy and his way came to mind. Glad to see you and I suppose time has waited for none of us. And like many I had an earlier signup date but lost it all during some computer mix up. For me I think it's been 3 plus years.

I guess we need to erect a Taffy Shrine or something to make you feel better.
Welcome to the Church of the Painful Truth....
Several of us were here in the begining with you and know that you were an important contributer.....OK, Thats been said atleast 1000 times....but, that was then and this is now..... What have you done for TT lately?
Posted December 02, 2003 - 12:07 PM
It's great to see you here! I hope you're doing well.
Times have changed and none of the manufacturers use the version of FCR carb you once tuned with except for the DRZ. No main air jets to replace now and the accelerator pumps are tuned by diaphram rivet lengths and Leak jets in the float bowl instead.
Yes, Jetting Q's is still here, and will be for years to come.

Good to hear from ya Taff. Been way too long... From my perspective, TT's been a bit "boring" as of late...mostly because it's all discussion related to the WR450 (which I admittedly know nothing about), but somewhat because of the lack of good ol' Taffy posts!
Once again, from a "not so old" TT member, props to you for all of the help with my bike. Of course it's all a mute point right now due to the 12 degree F temps outside right now!
BTW...know anything about tuning dual carbed Ski-Doo Renegade sleds? Think I'm in the market for one. They come with "DPM" (quasi-EFI), but I'm sure there's always room for improvement!

been getting some decent results with top 10/150 being a bit of a regular at two clubs but at the centre meetings where the national riders and the youngsters turn up-my fitness is shot.
the huseys on dell orto's are pigs to start but when you're weened on a WR400, what's new
the group though has a very low post turnover. the bikes need little modification but do need more maintenance. in a straight line a WR400 is quicker so lord knows what the 450 is like but at least husey have a 450 as well now.
very few WR's in the Uk racing compared to even last season. they're either a poor man's starter or a dealer entered machine. for most though they were too heavy. i have raced a few this year and all their hard riding/work is kaputt when they stall.
a man can only take so much.
anyway, let's hope that TT sets up a proper short, sweet archive that contains 'generally agreed' info that newcomers can dial straight in to.
if they've got time to start all these different groups then surely this area is overdue.
i'm off now for a flying lesson-tiger moth!-my speed and my style. anon.

I'm still running your/Taffy's jetting in my WR and I've YZ timed it now as well. The thing hauls A$$ and I have no complaints.
