2002 WR426F questions
Posted March 26, 2004 - 06:23 PM
1. I have a Big Gun header and exhaust, when the bike is running the header coming out of the cylinder turns real red (I mean this is some heat). It gets so hot that it makes the kick starter very hot. The pipe is pretty red all the way to the kick starter. Is this normal? Should I be concerned? I certainly am worried about getting burned.
2. The bike seem to backfire significantly when I let off the throttle or when I rev the bike. I dont know if this is just a four stroke thing or if it is a problem. The bike has a big gun exhaust, no air box mod, no grey wire, no jetting. What should I do.
I realize for you TT vets these may be some very rudimentary questions, hopefully I dont bore you to badly.
With this new bike I am sure I will have many more questions.
I have a broken collar bone so I cant ride for 5 weeks. I have ordered all new plastics, graphics, a scotts triple clamp and stabilzer. I will be selling my RG3 top clamp if you know of anyone that wants one. Seems to be very plush and takes alot of the vibration out of the bars or so I have been told.
Well thats it for know, your posts are appreciated.

Course, I don't know a thing about how to fix it, but from talking to others, I wouldn't hesitate to buy the JD jetting kit from the TT store, then log on here and get help setting it up.

I just rode the bike down the street yesterday, coming from a KDX200 the power of this 426 is amazing. This thing can scare the cr*p out of you if your not careful. Lots of power compared to the 200, this should be a blast provided I dont get myself killed
