I mentioned having a slight decel. pop with the DJ 165 main and the stock 50 pilot. Martin suggested installing the 55 pilot and I did that today.
Not only did it clear up the popping but the bike is running better throughout the RPMs and slightly cooler. It cooled off 15deg as indicated on the temp gauge.
Here's a few pics.
It took me about 45mins or so from start to finish.
The carb was spotless. It was as clean as it was when I installed the kit 2500mi. ago.
I wasn't sure what to think when I saw that the 55 pilot was longer but I went ahead and installed it anyway.
In this pic you can see the pilot seated. It's position is lower in the bowl but that didn't seem to cause any adverse effects.
If you look real close (kinda blurry) you can see what I was talking about when I asked about the difference in the shape of the DJ main and the Keihin
main. The DJ main has less i.d. in the cavity leading down to the jet hole which must be to accommodate the taper of the DJ needle. DJ jet on left.
I might go ahead and install the Keihin 170 later on just to see how it runs but as it is right now with the 165/55 it's running great.
I sure wish the Keihin carb had the mainjet access plug on the bottom of the bowl like the Mikuni
Pumper on my 440. That makes changing the main a 2min job!!
