My Doh! moment.

Recommended Posts

So moditis has infected me since getting my 650 last May.

My latest purchase being a FMF Q4 pipe and the ProCycle jet kit along with a UNI air filter and DRC folding mirror.

I ground down the header weld while I was at it and opened the airbox.

Things are going great until my subsequent test ride.

A fire it up for a sound check and warm it up down the mile block. Turn the corner and really get after it and it just poops out at a full throttle attempt. Idles fine and will rev with small throtle inputs. Just no Braaap!

OK, I have to work early the next day so I call it quits.

Today I pull the carburetor to check float level and possibility of crap in the Jets. As I am removing the float bowl, the main jet falls out in the process. It must have been very rich. Apparently I was distracted by a phone call during the crucial moment of actually tightening the jet properly. Damn!

Got it all buttoned up this afternoon and it runs great!

I hate it when that happens!

 

At the same time, when you opened up the air box did you re-jet too?  (didn't catch that in your list)
