Few Mods this AM
Hey everyone, been reading on some of the safety switch bypass mods, so decided to do the clutch and kickstand bypasses this morning. Was very easy. But for the kickstand I did something a lil different. Instead of cutting the wires and or soldering them or using a jumper, I thought why not just disconnect the cable that comes from the kickstand up to the switch? Very easy and very easy to replace if needed. If there is an issue doing it this way, please someone let me know. In my mind, if the switch isn't getting used, it shouldn't go bad. I also did the carb air mixture mod. For this I used a really small drill bit and instead of trying to use a larger bit to get the plug to spin out, I took a 90 degree mechanics pick and simply pulled the plug out. That way there isn't a chance of messing up the mixture screw. I turned the screw all the way in. From the factory it was out 1 1/2 turns. From threads on this board and on some other internet sites, I turned the mixture screw back out 2 1/2 turns. I also removed the large rubber boot on the left side of the air box allowing a lil bit more air to enter. Soon as I get a jigsaw, I am going to do the "L" opening mod ontop of the air box, but wanted to know if I would need to jet the carb after doing that, or if the current setting would work? I took some pics of the Carb plug and then of the cable I removed for the kickstand. Input always welcome.
