Jetting an 05...WTF?
Posted April 14, 2005 - 07:49 PM
Am I going to need to disconnect all those cables? I thought you could just turn it out enough to get the top off?
Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated!

take the tank off. push as much throttle cable as possible toward the carb. i always remove the hot start cable. i can't say it's in the way but the fitting is plastic and only screws in about four threads. i'm afraid i'm going to rip it out of the carb. don't over tighten when replacing it.
That's exactly why I bought the Zip-Ty alum. carb nut.

I loosen the front and rear carb clamps and then disconnect the hot start. I am then able to rotate the carb to the right to remove the top of the carb and change the needle. The jets are also accessible from the bottom. If you remove the throttle cables you can rotate it even more if need be.
I just jetted my bike with the JD kit. I removed the tank, unhitched the subframe and slid the air box back. Loosen the intake boot and removed the hot start cable. Slide the carb off the intake, rotate and jet. You don't have to unhitch the sub, but I had it loose anyway to put in the AIS blockoff and it made life real easy. You also don't have to remove the throttle cables-There is enough rotation of the carb to place the main and the needle
without any problems. Time wise was about 4 beers Oh yeah, Bike rips now
