Leak Jet Experience
Posted May 21, 2005 - 03:33 PM
Today, I decided to play with the Leak jet some more and installed a #35. The results were amazing as the TSB was virtually eliminated. I wish I could go smaller, but the #35 is it. I guess my next move would be to solder my #50 closed and try that, unless someone out there has a .30mm drill bit...SC

Is this what the "Power Now" is supposed to address? Or is the flywheel just to light for good slow speed running?
Thanks in advance for any responses.

Does this effect the "just off idle" transition area?
Absolutely! I rode today and there's virtually no bog anywhere. I think you may be too rich on your pilot and would suggest going to back to a 48 once you change the leak jet. I run a 48 with a ginormous hole in my airbox and only 1.5 turns on the fuel screw. I'm also running a 165 Main with the JD Red in the 5th position. No farting, puking, snoring, wheezing or sneezing...SC

OK, thanks, I'll try it. But if this is the case, why does it run better with the screw out 3+ turns? If I turn in the screw it also starts popping on decel.

I just used silver solder on the stock leak jet since it is useless anyway and I plugged the hole from the back side. It has not worn out over a full winter of riding and it will not contaminate the fuel in any way.
Will regular solder (Tin Lead SN 62) contaminate the fuel?
Thnaks for your help, Jeff
