More power in the UK (Taffy?)
Posted November 30, 2002 - 06:07 AM
For a first attempt, should I jet or should I go for a power exhaust (bearing in mind that trail riding and Enduro sound restictions in the UK).
Can anyone give me a shopping list of jets and needles to try? and does anyone in the UK have any second hand parts (exhaust included?).

A better place to start would be suspension work. If your smoother...... your faster and you'll have more endurance. Just a thought

Riding fast is about rider skill and confidence, you can be faster than the others with good suspension, so make sure you have the right springs, settings etc, and you will pickup seconds here and there... you are using your suspension all the time, but your motor may just accelerate you for a short while... say 30 seconds, then you only have your suspension to keep the speed up...
If you have problems with the terrain, consider a steering dampener... will make you smoother and faster, with more confidence to hold your speed...

I will check out the threads.

do you live almost in the farm at whaddon!
the jetting is established although some will for obvious reasons have found other settings i know that mine (shown at the bottom of this message) will be spot on for you.
the heavier you are; the more torque you need and yes indexing the cams is the way i went. but remember that my jetting is EXACTLY for the euro pipe and you shouldn't have any hesitation therefore in following it to the letter.
as for more torque, more cc's is the obvious one and in my case i re-timed the cams. more cc's ain't always easy.
nothing else has that effect. i think you ought to do the jetting and then come back to us.

Yep, Whaddon is about 10 minutes from me. I haven't done their track yet (just the main area), but am joining the TBEC to start racing in the Enduros, so no doubt will soon.
I will give the jetting a go. Where is the best place to buy the bits, Yam dealer, or specialised shop?

Taffy, what is the difference between your timing and YZ timing. I checked mine at the weekend, only to find that I already have YZ timing.

the inlet wa only changed 1/6 of a tooth. it added a little more torque for no loss.
when old man alan was around he would have sorted you out. i can't believe that there is any difference in the thread. what there IS a difference in is whether you have the mk1 or mk2 carb on it!
now that difference i can understand.
