Half Mod'd, is that bad?
Posted March 18, 2005 - 10:37 AM
I just got done doing the Airbox, throttle stop, and taking the whole snorkle out of my pipe on my 05 450F. I decided not to do the grey wire, because after reading up on it, I don't think it will do all that much. I could be wrong though, and may do it in the future....
Anywho, I was wondering if only half modding the bike will be bad for it. With the pipe snorkle out I can really hear the backfiring. I am planning on doing the AIS removal and probably jetting it here in a few weeks, but until then is it going to be extra hard on it without doing that stuff?
Sorry for the newbie question, but that is what I am!

I did like many others here and installed a 165 main, 48 pilot and zipty fuel screw. After that, it's like riding a different bike! The jets are around 3 to 4 bucks from the dealer and the fuel screw is around 25. Pretty cheap upgrades for a 6K investment.

So I just need to buy the actual jets, or do I need to get the whole jetting kit? I have NO IDEA what I am doing (yet).

If you plan on jetting the bike yourself here's a tip. Unbolt the subframe to allow better access to the carb. Makes the carb much easier to remove that way. Just use the manuals diagrams for reference and it a pretty easy job.
