Two 11 cent #4 washers installed under the button head of the mid-range carburetor jet Needle.What in the H_ll is the 22 cent mod? Will my bike last till morning?
I think inflation has upped that to at least a $.60 cent mod.Two 11 cent #4 washers installed under the button head of the mid-range carburetor jet Needle.
This helps reduce the EPA induced lean/clean running in the most used portion of throttle opening, 1/4 - 3/4.
Works best at sea-level to 3000 ft. 3000 to 5000ft one should only use 11 cents worth. 5000 ft & up not needed, IMO.
Let us say, after conscientious Internet research, you actually APPLY all the performance-enhancing, power-gaining modifications you find to your KLR650 (including the vaunted PCV valve modification). Even, advance the exhaust camshaft one sprocket tooth.Are performance mods to a KLR over wishful. If not , please tell me more.

FI doesn't increase horsepower, necessarily . . . a properly-tuned carb, yielding optimum Air/Fuel mixture ratio, matches FI in terms of power output. That said, FI offers other advantages, depending upon design and complexity; such as responsiveness to ambient conditions, delivering appropriate air/fuel ratio under various conditions, etc.
I'd expect modifications other than FI are primarily responsible for the increase in power output to 60 HP; would like to read the article.
