A Little help
OK, before I ask my questions, let me say this. This is a great site with people more than willing to help people out, amazing (not just saying it because I need some help either..)
I bought a new 2009 Blue KLR and had it shipped to Germany where I am stationed. I installed a Studebaker (I have seen the comments about KLR650.com, was new to this when I bought) exhaust and K&N air filter, the kit came with the jet kit as well. I a getting a lot of backfire when I ride now (decelerating) and I have seen the post about changing the carb air mixture screw to ¾ to 1 full turn out, but this requires drilling into the carb. (finally a question) Will the jet kit do basically the same thing of making it run richer? I am not so keen on drilling into the carb on a new bike little over 1K miles.
Does anybody have any pictures putting in a jet kit? I am fairly mechanically inclined, but am not familiar with all the terms that are in the instruction that came with the jet kit, and pictures would make the process a whole lot easier for the first time on a new bike. I have searched the web and cannot find pictures or a video surprisingly.
Next, I have a bit of wobble in the head of the bike when I am going around 70. I have seen all kinds of stuff from stiffer spring, heavier shock oil to a steering stabilizer and tighten my head nut. Let me describe a bit more. This is nothing violent just a slight wobble at about 70, first I thought it was road imperfections or the tires (had someone tell me to check the wheel balance as well) but I have no idea. Bars move about ¼ to ½ inch maybe, just enough to cause me some concern. Any help would be appriciated
