Dynojet on 2008

Has anyone used the dynojet kit for a 2008 KLR650? I am thinking of using it because of past performance. Any suggestions or testimonies? Thanks

Have you installed an aftermarket muffler?, Air Cleaner?, Made some mods to the air box? If not you would probably be better served doing the 22 cent smile maker. That is installing 2 #4 stainless washers under your Main Jet Needle. Then of course pop out the plug for the Idle mixture screw and open it up from soft seat to about two turns out. I have heard this make a very nice and noticeable improvement in throttle response and some midrange power.

Previous ride was a 2007 KLR Black/Silver, I miss it..
Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.

I have a K&N air filter and will be installing a spark plug. I am not sure that I want to change the muffler yet. Thanks for the tip, might try this first!

Do yourself a favor and return the K&N and put the stocker back in. The K&N does not fow as much air.

+1 on the K&N, I ended up putting the stocker back in mine even with the new exhaust and opened up air box..

I don't suppose you have photos of this process... There seems to be a shortage of '08 manuals
