I don't know why you would need one. We jetted ours and it has absolutely no hesitation at all. It feels like it is fuel injected. I don't think the quick shot would do much for it and if it did I don't know if I would want to ride it.

Save the 80 bucks and modify the cover yourself. Simple mod involoves drilling another hole in stck cover.

I love the difference. It makes it snappy off the bottom and allowed me to go a gear lower on the rear sprocket. :thumbsup:

Not completely talkin out my a$%. I traded my new stock for one that had been modified by a local race guru. Take a look at a Boyeson at a local shop and modify the stocker in a similar way. The hole will need to be drilled towards the top of the chamber to allow fuel to completely fill the chamber, instead of halfway which is how the stock one works. I only looked at the one I installed for a minute or two in December before I installed it. Could probably provide more info if you need it.

Sorry dude,

I wasn't trying to give you a hard time, but your "modification" comment was kinda Hit-and-Run.

I guess worst case scenario is I screw-up the drilling process and end up buying a boyeson anyway. :thumbsup:

Thanks,
Dave

there is a TON of info on the BK Mod in these forums, try to do a search and check the link to BK's site, there is a ton of info to use there. I have not done the MOD to mine yet as I still loop it out on occasion not being use to the power. Just sold my 426 and bought a 450 so Im not sure if this one will need it either.

Before you spend the 80 try wiring the accellerator pump there is a picture in my garage.

I have done it to the 04, 05, & 06 and never touched the actual adjustment just wired it as it came.

what exactly did you gain, the problem i can't seem to get rid of is in the upper rpms getting on/off the gas abruptly there is a slight hesatation ( not bad but annoying) i know it has something to do with the accel pump because i can almost adjust it out with the screw but its always there a little. jetting is as good as its gonna get,and i've tried each side of the spectrum of each circuit. i think maybe the quickshot might be giving the squirt more pressure because i have to slow the start time significantly more than the book reccomends :thumbsup: i'll definately try this wire trick as its easy enough to do and reverse if it doesn't do it :thumbsup:

Hey guys,
This is the first I have heard of the Boyesen Quickshot. From what I gather it is a larger cover for the carb to allow more fuel in so there is no hesitation. I haven't noticed a hesitation with mine, but I have notice a couple of times my bike will stall for no reason. I am wondering if this would help with my problem. Any positive feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.

yea I'm having the same problem with random stalling for no reason, it's almost enough to make me regret getting this 06 and wanna go back to my 250 2 stroke. If this product would help with this problem then I'd be all over it, anyone know?

aford541, what is the objective of wiring the accelerator pump like that? I assume to keep the actuater in contact with the cam at all times. But why?

This is the first time I have seen that trick.
