hallo guyz, George from here Greece and i have a few questions about my KLR. As soon as We dont have many KLR in Greece ( we have yamaha Xt instead ) i was looking forums for informations in other countries and im glad i found urs.
Anyway im gonna make a small presentation about my KLR
Exhaust : Arrow totally free exhaust. ( probably the previous owner had an Larger Arrow exhaust cutted and fitted on KLR with many mods. Exhaust is WAY TOO LOUD. I even made a home made silencer but still.... )
Carb : CVK 40 , Drilled a hole 7/64 as many of u suggest ( i was even doing this mod in my other bikes with CV carb so i am quite familiar with it . Main jet 150 (from previous owner ) no 22 cent mod, no klx needle.
No holes into airbox
Engine completely stock
Thats all about the engine.
Some questions now:
( i wanna make clear that its allmost impossible to find Stuff like klx needle, DJ kit, Schnitz 685-705 kit, Eagle Mike Doo-Hickey ** c models dont have that problem like A-B models for USA** , FMF-Big gun exhausts, K&N - UNI FOAM filter in Greece and general in Europe. So i need to gather information to make a BIG order from USA about stuff i need to change. )
1. My bike burns oil, from the stuff i have read online allmost all Klrs does that and the only solution is aftermarket piston ( i am right ah? ) . So my 1st question is this
Schnitz racing piston kit 685 ( order from usa ) VS Wossner 101-102 mm ( can be pursuased from Greece).
2. CV vs Flat slide carb. As i said before, i am familiar with CV carbs. thaugh the question is this. **I can get in my hands a Mikuni tm40, a dellorto PHM 40 ( from ktms i guess ), FCR mx 39-41.**
Does it worth to put on a Flat slide carb or modify the CV ( prolly with KLX needle, and from that baseline, cause of free exhast to play with various MJ and L mode on airbox. ) Have heard tha the power difference with a Flat slide pumber carb is way better on 1 cylinder engine even 3-5 HP if tuned correctly
3. Atm my bike probably is way to lean even with 150 MJ. It pops a lot in deceleration.
those are the following reasons i guess
Stock bike allready lean
Free pipe makes it even leaner
Snorkel removed makes it even leaner
atm im using some ducktape instead of snorkel ( as soon as the previous owned had it removed ) and the pops at deceleration seems a bit better now , it aint gone still there but way better.
Is there something i can do for pops till i decide what option to choose ( upgrade CV or go for Flat )??
Thats all guyz, I need to say a big thanks in advance for ur time reading this. Any tips are so welcome. ( and so sorry about my bad english since its not my mother language )
Wish i could attach some photos
