rainy cool weather & bike runs very well..

Recommended Posts

Wanted to get the bike up to temperture for oil change and regardless of the fact it was lightly rainy outside and only about 70 degrees, i took off for a ride. I could not believe how good the bike was running. Does this mean the jetting is a bit off? (have 650DR w/ jetting kit) would richening up things be move in the right direction? Thanks,

humidty makes the jetting richer.cool temp lean it.

question is which one had the most effect.

As usual the humidity is high here in Michigan, bout 75-80 % today when i rode. Running 155MJ, 4th notch on needle clip, airbox is opened at top per Jesse's rec/ lid still there. 1-15/16th out on pilot screw. Runs great going hard through the gears although feel it could be crisper in on/off throttle situations/commuting. Had some cool weather a couple weeks ago/no rain, and it ran well then too. Tried a 150MJ about a month ago but it didn't run well at all. I'm thinking lower the needle one notch....
