needed: headlight lens and a question on jetting

8 posts in this topic

I took a rock in headlight lens on a ride this week. :applause:

Does anyone have a lens for a '04 laying around that they would be willing to sell?

Please PM me if you do..................

question on jetting:

I've installed the JD kit, great low, mid and top end response.

I almost looped the bike when I hit the throttle testing the bike in my alley.

When I hit the gas while rolling, the acceleration wants to throw me off the back. all good......

my problem is at idle and just cracked throttle, a bit-o-hestitation that is annoying and in sharp uphill turns caused some stalls. Any suggestions?

I followed JD's instructions. I just need the tweeks to make it run at idle+.

Thanks ahead of time........

Sounds like you might need a little leak jet therapy. Put a #40 in there and double check your AP timing...SC

Thanks for the reply.......

Where's the best place to pick up jetts? I was thinking of putting a little jetting set together.

Also, is the a good guide thread in the forum that shows all the jetts locations? Main and pilot i got, where are the starter, and idle jetts ?

Most good bike shops carry jets for Mikuni & Kiehin...if they don't, they aren't a good bike shop! It doesn't have to be a dealership, either...

The pilot jet IS the idle jet. The starter jet is near the main and pilot. The leak jet is in the float bowl, not the carb body.

You'll have a hard time finding starter and leak jets in a shop. Your best bet is to order them yourself through Bike Bandit or Zanotti Motors. There's a jetting p/n list floating around the forum somewhere, but I've got a more complete list on my computer at home. P/M me and I can send it to you tomorrow...SC

If you can't come up with a lens, go to a local auto glass shop and buy a piece of flat lexan sheet, cut it to fit and epoxy it on. I've done this on several headlights, works great.

The headlight is not a cheap assembly, but once you get it replaced (if you buy a new one) check my garage link under my avatar to see how I protect mine.
