Got to know my ride a little better today... I bought this bike about three weeks ago so I dont know exactly what has been done to it. Basically disassembled the damn bike to get the carb off ('08 450), found the AIS and throttle screw have been addressed, gray wire cut, and snorkle removed. I am trying to address the mid range bobble so commonly talked about here on TT so I disassembled the carb to see what jetting I'm running.
What I found -
Leak - 45
Main - 168
Pilot - 50
Starter - 65
Pilot air - 70
Needle - GDDTR with clip in the 4th pos.
Do you guys see anything that doesn't make sense? I run in the 0-2000' range with temps from 40*-70* typically.
I also ran up the pre-load on the rear shock (I'm 6'4" and around 270#) and confirmed dampening settings so I can fine tune them on the next outing. I'll probably have to re-spring to the fat man spring at some point, but it seems to be sufficient at this point.
