Exhaust vs. jets

Howdy folks. I have a 2008 KLR six fiddy that came with a Vance and Hines slip-on muffler I haven't tried yet (stock one is on now).

Question is will I need to do anything jet/fuel/air wise if I install this puppy....or just slip it on and go?

Hi Alfa-Stu,
The KLR 650 is very lean from the factory to meet emissions so you will likely need to rejet when installing the exhaust. I feel this jet kit is the best way to go.

Hello,Alfa-stu, on my 2008 I did the klx kit from eagle mike. I told him my elevation and he set me up. Wow what a difference ! Later I installed a lexx slip on with no issues to the carb tuneing. Hope that helps
