Well, I bought it yesterday. Today I gave it a hell of a bath!

I'm sure I'll have some questions for you all :busted:

Why are you second guessing, ...............
Stock jetting means overheating. Cutting open your air box only, would make it even leaner, and even hotter.


Thanks Krannie. That was what I needed to hear. You just verified what I already knew.

The TT Store, of course!!! :busted:

Your local stealer (erm, dealer) might have one as well. I personally used the GYTR kit because I'm familiar with it. Both do essentially the same thing.

BTW, I started my 450 yesterday and I have crap gas now...
Serves me right for letting it sit for a bit whilst I worked on other stuff. :thumbsup:

You really should consider running either fuel stabilizer or octane booster with fuel stabilizing capabilities.

I put maxima hi-test in my gas and have never had a problem. This year alon I've gone months at a time without even touching it and its always started and ran like normal even with old gas in the float bowl (I know I know :thumbsup:).

Quick headlight change.

The old had me bored with the oldschool square style. I must admit, I have never liked Allien Cap but it sure has grown on me.
