Man What A Difference

8 posts in this topic

I just got around to installing my K&N stage 2 jet kit. What a difference it made. I had already installed the K&N air filter back in the summer and could tell a little difference. You put them both together and hang on. It woke the old XR up. Excellent throttle response off of an idle. :thumbsup:

Yeah, I couldn’t agree more. 2 days ago I installed a new K&N Filter, jet kit and XR’s Only pipe (from stock setup)…WOW! It was like installing a new motor. All I think about is hammering the throttle now! Hard to believe how much they choke those L motors down from the factory.

I purchased my K&N stage 2 kit off of Ebay from a guy that never got around to using it before he sold his bike. Thats a good question on the dual carbs, you might check at the K&N web site. Ill do some checking and if I find anything Ill PM you. :thumbsup:

Hey Mountain Road...will it wheelie in second gear without clutching now? I rejetted to 55/158 / K&N filter, removed snorkel, stock pipe - is *just* short of wheelying in second gear. I think when I put the Supertrapp IDS2 on, it will get the front wheel up. How 'bout yours?
