    2001 XRL too rich?

    yeh it seems to sag a bit when I crank on it in first, it doesnt do it all the time just when I put it completely to the end of the highest throttle position. other than that it works awesome through the powerband....I definetly notice a difference.
  2. Hey so I got my XRL all fitted up with a RT4 slip on, uni filter and I took a big jump from a 152 main jet to a 160, my question is was my jump too large or will my filter and exhaust compensate for my big jump? thanks a lot. Also, I just pulled out the main jet and screw the new one in, should I have done any other mods while I had it apart or is that all you do when changing main jets, from smaller to larger? thanks

    XRL Main jet Question

    so I got the RT 4 on and I had to get a mid pipe made because the one I got didnt fit. (for an xr650r). I havent modded my XRL at all since I have put on the Jardine, my plug looks fine, no white residue, has regular chared look, no backfire but a little popping here and there so I think I am going to leave it as is? or should I change anything? I ordered a 160 main jet but I don't think I am going to put it in because my bike runs awesome through the power band anyway as is. Opinions welcome. Thanks.

    Thanks a lot. If all goes well I should be flying, I'll let you know the outcome. Thanks again.

    XRL Main jet Question

    thanks, but some people say that with a pipe and filter you only need to get a larger main jet. I know a jet kit would be better performace wise, but I do not have the cash right now. The daves mods seem tedious if I can remember correctly and I am not ready to go that far. Can I go with a larger pilot and main? just the two? if so, what sizes would be good for me? thanks in advance again. OK so I think I am going with a 55 pilot jet and a 160 main jet, how many turns should I turn my air fuel mixture screw in order for it all to work together with my jardine pipe? Thanks a lot for anyone's help. And if you think I should't go with those jet sizes let me know. Thanks.
  8. Hey so I got a jardine slip on for my 2001 XRL 650. RT-Four Aluminum Slip-On, Spark Arrest I want to slap a uni filter into it, and therefore probably need to jet it. What size main jet is in my carb now? and what size should I jump to? thanks. There are a set of main jets on ebay I may get depending on your response. They are # 155 #160 #165 #170 These are all main jets. I assume I only need one. I live in southern New brunswick, Canada if that helps. Thanks in advance for your help. If I need anything else do not hesitate to reccomend.
