I just did mine yesterday! It's a pain but I now see what is necessary...

Remove Seat
Remove Fuel Tank
Remove Side Panels
Drain Radiator Overflow Tank and Lines
Disconnect AIS and Engine Vent Lines From Airbox
Remove Lower Sub-Frame Bolts
Loosen Upper Sub-Frame Bolt
Loosen Carb to Airbox Clamp
Swing (Carefully) Sub-Frame Up Just Past Vertical and Secure With Line
Remove Upper Shock Attach Bolt (12m)
Remove Lower Shock Attach Bolt (14mm)
Remove Shock
Remove Upper Engine Mounts
Remove Carb Cable Cover and Cables
Disconnect Throttle Position Sensor Wire
Disconnect Hot-Start Cable (14mm)
Loosen Carb to Engine Clamp
Remove the Carb

I may have missed a couple of details but thats about it! The re-jet is easy!

WOW I can't believe people are taking apart their entire bikes to swap jets :eek:

Here is what I did:

1. Removed seat, shrouds, tank
2. Removed the two top motor mounts (gives you access to needle)
3. Loosened air boot and intake clamps, rotated carb and removed big bolt from float bowl (gives you access to pilot and main and barely enough room to drill out the gay EPA plug on fuel screw hole.)

I didn't have to replace anything else other than the pilot, needle, and main. If I needed to get to the leak jet or the AP cover, then the subframe would have to come off and the shock would have to be dropped as there is not enough room to take the float bowl off or to get to the AP cover. You can do the o-ring mod the carb on the bike, but that requires a clear mind, flexible hands, alot of patcience.

That folks is the price we pay to have fancy shmancy 4 strokes with aluminum frames :crazy:

You know JSanfilippo, if we would search a bit more or ask before jumping in we would have done it like you suggest! :worthy:

Thanks! I need to change my needle (oops) and I am going to do it your way!
