hi james....i have a 2004 model ktm exc 525 and want to order and ship over to the uk the JD jet kit for my bike..is this kit suitable for my uk bike? or is it tailor made for us spec bikes only, i understand US bikes have different carb settings for emissions etc so i wondered if the kit was based on those strict settings..my stock setup is as follows...UK 2004 EXC 525, FCR MX 39 carb,main jet 178,needle OBDVT, idle 42,main air 200,idle air 100,needle 3rd clip from top,starting jet 85, mixture screw 1 1/4 turns out, slide 15.......i am right on sea level..the bike pops and bangs terrible on deceleration..hope this info helps you..kind regards....bill

The kit applies to both US and European spec bikes. The same symptoms are present on both.

Made sure the pipe is well sealed off of the cylinder head. The popping and banging can be from a leaking pipe too.

Thanks,

James
