First test ride after all the mods
This is on my '09 650.
To date I just broke 1500 miles, (got it last Sept.)
As soon as I got it I did the following........
1 The Doo kit
2 Thermo Bob's kit
3 The .22 mod, 2 #4 washers, 1 richer main jet, 2 1/2 turns on the air screw, tossed the snorkle, drilled 3-1" holes in the top of the air box, 2-1" in the cover. (put some air filter foam over the holes), drilled the slide hole out 7/32 drill.
Ran all right, just like my old KLR ('07)
Switched to Amsoil oil.
Feb came @
I dropped on the Lexx muffler, made a dash.
Odered the KLX 300 needle, spacer, 44 pilot, Happy Trails nerf bars.
Today I fianlly got time to install all the new stuff.
The exhaust had been on for a few weeks, like the sound, but I could tell it was lean on the bottom.
The Happy Trail Nerf bars were a real pain to install!
I dunno what it is about this bike, but when I put the muffler on I had to make a spacer to install the muffler, and with the bars after 4 hours, of trying to figure out how to make it all fit, I had to make spacers for the bars that go across the frame?????
Turn my attention to the carb.
The needle went in no problem.
I installed it 1 clip lower, (richer)
I dropped in the 44 pilot, turn the air screw in to 1 turn.
Fired it up......................
Final setting on the air screw, is like 3/4 to 7/8 turn.
Took it out for a test ride.
The acceleration is boosted by a good 40%!
It pulls HARD now!
The exhaust sound "throatier" now.
Over all it runs WAY better now.
Over all good choices.
Next up grade.................
The rear tire is just about gone, (Key-Rist I only got 1500 miles outta it, I bet it may just make 2000 miles).
I have a 14 tooth front sproket to install when I swap out the tire, (I want to lower the rpm on the highway).
This is it, the KLR is done, no more goodies for it!
So many bikes, so few $$!
