In the works of re-jetting carb to match the Jardine exhaust, also going to do the pvc valve on the crank case to the air box .

Heheheheh man I have seen my bike look like that way too much this past week. I am still working on getting the plug looking just right with the jetting and Jardine. Let me know how your results turned out please. I am almost thinking I am going to order a KLX needle. But I will try a 152 jet first with this studebaker kit I got from KLR650 with the exhaust.

Bro follow the instructions. I'll bet your bike is alright. Put it on a dyno for like $60 and see how the sniffer looks A/F. Forget the plug. At idle it will be one color. Running down the high way it will be another. Your carb is in like sections. Jet circirt 1/4 throttle, 1/2 mid range-needle,3/4throttle top end main jet. You will have to be running bike at a certain throttle then kill engine and check plug. To get accurate reading's. With today's fuels the plug reading is kind of goofy now.

I got to reading a bunch last few days and there seems to be some great success using the KLX needle and a 142 main with the same set up I have, so I am expecting all that here in the next couple of days. I will put those in and give it shot and will probably leave it alone if it runs like a raped ape as it does now.

She is all back together with the klr needle and the air/fuel screw out 2 turns from closed. Runs super strong now and the header has not turning red at an idle. I have not checked the plug as of yet , but i dont feel any surge at any rpm. Maybe the stock 145 jet is going to work for me.

Airbox is totaly stock,,, should i do some mods. to it ? Or should i leave it alone since its running really good ?

If it runs good, leave it alone, but I could really tell a power difference between my stock foam air filter and the after market paper filter. The stock one choked it down just a bit.

Mine's an '00 but I'd like to find a paper air filter that will fit with the stock air box. Any guidance appreciated.

Ahhh, I was looking for actual paper rather than the oiled gauze. I haven't seen any paper filters that will fit. Thx.
