such thing as an off-idle RICH bog?

i recently switched to a 40 leak jet, and boyeson quickshot, which did very little for my off-idle bog.

if i wick real quick off of idle, it will bog hard. is this condition ALWAYS a lean condition?? do i need to solder my leak jet shut for a richer squirt??

Can't say for sure, but when I was jetting, I tried a 40, 52 (50 not available at the time, but not much difference anyway) and the stock 70 in various combinations with 42, 45 and 48 pilot jets. I found the best results with the 52 leak jet and the 48 pilot (sea level, 80 - 90, high humidity), even though most guys use and recommended the 40 lj. I too added the quick shot (but only after the jetting was as good as I could get it), which I feel made a slight improvement.

If the bike bogs...stumbles/stutters...and goes without stalling, then I would say that the bike is slightly rich.

But...I'm still trying to get rid of the bog on my bike....

Have you tried adjusting your AP squirt? CW delays it, CCW lengthens it provided it's not hitting the slide too early...SC

I originally set it to the recommened setting with the gapper tool provided with the quickshot.

I think im gonna go back and set it according to the slide.

With the cold weather hitting us, I popped in a #45 leak and turned my AP screw 1/2 turn CW. I haven't ridden it yet, except for a quick turn around the block, but it seemed to like it...SC
