i did that to my bike and there is an unbelivible change in noise and no HP is lost.. all that it is is a 90degree albow pipe... it works like u wouldnt believe.. as for other mods.. well... they can be really usefull there are other pipes but if u dont want to spend a whole lot of money then the downturn for 5 bucks is hard to beat.. give it a shot and tell me what u think

It has been suggested that this is due to a "lean" condition. Overall, I am happy with the performance so I chose not to mess with jetting. Note that the bike still has the original spark plug. One thing I noticed on this forum is that the jetting gurus are generally talking about fouling plugs.
Sounds kind of fun to tinker with jetting, but since I need to haul the bike a couple of hours to ride it, I devote all of my time with her to the ride, not "tinkering" on the trail and at camp.
Oh, I am rambling....................

The "Dual Idle" you are experiencing is exactly the way my WR acts. Instead of wainting for the idle to come down, I just drop it in gear and slip the clutch a bit and the idle comes right down.

Your bikes are running lean. The sypmtoms you describe are whats called a "hanging idle". The problem with being lean is the risk of burning the piston. Out of the box these bikes are strong. If you adjust the pilot, main, and clip position on your bike (rejet) You will turn it into a much snappier, much more challenging bike to ride. Once you learn how to ride something thats trying to modify your shoulder joints and wave the front wheel in the air, this bike doubles the fun level!!!
Rejet and get familier with how to do it. Also, every bike is different, what works for one in the same conditions may be slightly different for you.
