Studebaker Muffler

Has anyone used the RX-14 that is sold on KLR650.com? looks like a good deal with the air filter and jet kit.

I know DX has used this, but since he went Strom, he doesn't visit that often.. I'll PM him for you and see if he can pipe in on the subject.

The RX-14 is a copy of the Jardine RT-4. In a word "LOUD!!!" The filter is a copy of the K&N filter. It frequently comes out of the box over-oiled and will choke the air flow and cause the motor to run poorly. The carb kit is a copy of one of the major manufacturers like Dynojet.

Exactly. "Jet kits are manufactured by one of the following: FMF, Moose, DynoJet, or Studebaker"
For that price you will get the Studebaker kit, not one of the name brands listed.

Almost everything sold at 650.com is a copy and manufactured in China. I refuse to shop there.

I will be selling a used Super Trap IDS2 muffler (no mid-pipe) after I get the Suzuki GSXR 750 muffler mounted.

Start with the 22 cent mod. A washer or two to raise the stock needle. If you need more adjustability there is the OEM KLX needle and main jets or Dyno Jet kit.

For what its worth, James Dean Jetting offers a kit for the KLR now. I tihnk that it comes with a selection of jets and two different needles. I have heard that they are good about support and advice, but have never had to use it as their recommendations were spot on. I wouldn't use anything else- nothing but excellent results. Just another option.

Jardine RT4 & Rt5 do not need a jet kit. Just put on a RT4 and WOW what a difference !
