Has my bike been jetted?

Recommended Posts

Hello people,

 

Just a quickie, and please excuse me as I am a noob.

 

I brought a nice 2004 DR-Z E 10 days ago and I love it.

 

The bike has been treated to lots of shiny parts over it life and its got me wondering whether there is an easy way to tell if my bike has been rejetted.

 

Regarding performance the bike has a full CRD Absolute performance exhaust and has had the 3x3 mod to the air box.

 

The bike absolutely flies and has no problem starting or idling. It doesnt pop or bang much on overrun which would suggest she runs lean?

 

 

Anyways I'm just curious as I assumed a full exhaust and modded airbox would not run nicely on standard jets? 

 

 

Cheers guys,

i think its safe to assume that someone that spent 1000 on an exaust and a bunch of goodies, which turned out to look like a squared away machine (nice bike btw) that runs great, didnt miss jetting it .. all you need to worry about imo is getting some street lights on it, oh yeah ...

 There is only one absolute way to know if and what the jetting is. You will have to pull out the carb and take it apart and physically read and record whats in it jet wise. Since it is running fine and not problematic just ride it! When curiousity gets the best of you and you have time do see what you have got going on!

 So let me get this straight:

 

You found a hot chick who wants to shag.

 

She shows you a 1 hour old doctors report she has a clean bill of health and her tubes are tied.

 

You still want to do a "sniff test" before hand?

 

Dude, shag her till she limps and dont ask questions! :lol:

LOOL I haven't taken her off the road while I investigate! 

 

I'm just curious as to how much of a bargain I got! 

 

And as per pics, shes certainly being used ;)

Though,....Removing the CE is just taking the other boyfriend out of the equation.... :lol:
