Throttle stop removed
Grey wire cut
AIS has NOT been removed
TPS still connected
Dr. D Exhaust
Elevation 0-4000ft - Southern California.
JD jetting kit
Main 168 - I have gone one up and one down and it stutters. 168 is the best.
Pilot 45 - I went one up to 48 and didn't like it. So I went back down to 45
Red needle with clip in 4th position
Fuel Screw 1.5 turns out
R&D Power Pump with leak jet set to 40
PowerNow & PowerPlus
Acerbis 3.3 Fuel Tank
Now this is my problem. The thing is a gas hog. I know I opened it up, but it eats the gas up bad! I have a 3.3 gallon tank, and I only get about 60 miles on it before I have to hit reserve. That's roughly 20mpg. I also noticed this last ride that it bogged out a little in the 3/4 to full throttle as if it was too rich.
So I figure between losing gas fast and the bog that it's running too rich, but I'm not sure what to do, because if I go down in the main it starts to stutter.
Any Ideas? It seems like everyone with my year of bike is going with a 48 pilot and a 168 main with the JD Kit and similar setup/elevation. I was thinking maybe trying 48 pilot (I have 45 now) and instead of 168 main maybe stepping it back to 165. Additionally, REMOVING THE AIS.
p.s. It seems like I get horrible gas mileage whether I go fast or take it easy.
I have checked the plug and it's black black. It looks like it's running rich. I also checked the Carb Float. The manual says 8mm and I have it right around 7-8mm. I am having a hard time measuring it because my calipers don't seem to reach (aren't long enough) all the way to the bottom of the float (pointed float bowl). That, and I'm not 100% confident that I am doing it right.
