Below is a e-mail reply that I got from dynojet, when I asked them why they do not provide a pilot jet in the kit.

"With our needle that we have developed for that machine we do not have to
enlarge the pilot jet. "

I'm guessing they were just too cheap to tool-up for a pilot jet, and too proud to send a keihin with the kit!

I agree mine runs fine with the dynojet kit in also. Yesterday I slipped the snorkle back into the aitrbox and there was no performance difference at all. I will have to do a plug read and see if there is any difference with it in or out, I doubt there is. I think the dynojet kit is a simple and effective way to correct the stock lean condition and it is very easy to do too.

the only thing i can think of is the cost of the kit compared to the cost of doing a home rejet. later! :thumbsup:

I have installed a dynojet kit on my XR650L 2006 and am very very satisfied with the outcome. I really didnt think the cost was too much, paid $43.00 on ebay and it came with everything. The trottle response was improved greatly. I have a wileyco exhaust and K&N filter and it is desnorkeled.

didnt drill the slide, did remove the snorkel, I installed the 165 main and we are about 2500 ft. she runs really well, very quick throttle response, and top end is improved a great deal also. :thumbsup:
