I've been known to run an indicated 90-95mph on some parts of the deserted gravel roads that criss-cross Wyoming USA and 100-105mph on deserted stretches of asphalt.I have no idea what it's top speed would be, certainly in the explain yourself to the constabulary range🤣
Credit MCP, by all means, if you like. Yet, the previous corrections and adjustments you mention may have contributed, at least marginally, to the performance improvement, IMHO.Once I pulled my carby out it became evident that it had been previously tampered with, the idle mix screw cover was gone and the float level was mal-adjusted, (what I missed at this point was that the main jet had been changed to something much larger andnot numbered correctly) once this was sorted out, and explaination for the huge improvement seen on the second dyno run was evident, the bike was running rich from the out set.
I can confirm the improvement to acceleration and mid range power delivery.
WOW---105 mph! You must have one of those high-performance MCP jet needles installed in your carbatooter!I've been known to run an indicated 90-95mph on some parts of the deserted gravel roads that criss-cross Wyoming USA and 100-105mph on deserted stretches of asphalt.
I’ve been reading for the last two hours on this site and a good bit of that was through jetting posts and the MCP posts I could find. This recent post above was the only “poke” joke I saw.Thousands of kits out there now, including MANY MANY MANY members from this group who don't speak up for fear of reprisal, harassment and beratement from you select few who just WON'T GET OVER YOURSELVES.
On that note I commend brave people like Ben who obviously don't give shit what those "select special few" say (you know who you are)
I thought this group had a harassment policy, i guess it only applies if a person never mentions MCP
To those "special folks" - Please continue to keep the juvenile attitudes going, at this point any exposure is exposure to me, thank you for helping MCP have a banner year, surpassing ALL of last years sales by the end of march this year.
Rest assured there are a large portion of people IN thiS group who are enjoying all the benefits MCP provides all the while rolling their eyes at the juvenile short sighted remarks by those who think they know what they are talking about.

This is a forum with some very experienced mechanics and klr specific techs. This one going into detailed home experiments to provide us results, as a hobby!
As with MCP related posts there was that certain “touch” or feeling you get when you’re reading a, too-good-to-be-true advertisement. Lots of talk and explanations but no PROOF.
If anything, I’ve only noticed a criticism toward the marketing and claims of the product. Which is one reason some of us, me included, rely on this site. Evidence based advice. I can TRUST what Paul, Tom, Damocles, PeteK, Schlim, Pellier, etc, say.
First, the vendor claims for the MCP carb kit as both producing more power and retaining stock fuel efficiency are not supported by my testing. Yes, it produces more power: it reduced my 50-60 MPH acceleration time in 5th gear from about 6.5 sec. to about 6 seconds. However highway cruising fuel efficiency decreased significantly, from about 46 MPG stock to about 39 MPG, with small variations depending on mixture screw settings.
Second, throttle response: the MCP kit improved throttle response compared to my initial stock carb setup. However when I went back to the stock needle and jet, and enriched the mixture screw to 2 turns out, the the throttle response also improved, with respect to my initial stock setup. Subjectively, I judge the MCP kit to give slightly better throttle response than the stock setup with 2 turns on the mixture screw, but it’s a small difference, and to be sure, I would have to do more back-to-back testing, which I think is more effort than it’s worth.”
If you don’t like the criticism, don’t share your product. If you want to stand up for your product or business, provide results. Not a spur of the moment, emotion filled forum post about “special” people on here.
I would but I’m not talented enough to do that 😁 although I can sympathize with your frustrationsThanks for the civilized reply Thumper
Most of my posts and threads from the past were either deleted by myself or tom. None of the people you mentioned have tried MCP except one, who i will let speak up for himself and not draw him into this thread. So if you're looking for evidence based fact you're not going to get it from any of these folks but one, who publicly posted in here that he preferred MCP which immediately sparked hundreds of kits being sold.
In the past i "thought out loud", and on some of those things i was wrong which i admitted, most of which i was right. I admitted when i was wrong or said "in theory". The people that continue to repeat these things do not mention that part so they can devalue the information and demean me and my claims.
As far as the experienced mechanics comments, yes there are, but that doesn't mean that something has been overlooked for 30+ years the bike has been around. I've learned lots from this site myself, none of this has any bearing, or very little on what MCP does.
Want proof, check the megacity performance facebook page for dyno sheets, an afr or two and hundreds of customer testimonials, I'm not sure how much more proof can be provided, if people can't believe the proof offered they will not believe anything and that in itself proves my claims of harassment. Dozens of testimonials comparing KLX to MCP, even from one of the people you mentioned you trust. If you can't be bothered to view the proof just so you can argue with me, you're part of the pack mentality that tries to run me down at every opportunity. If you're not part of this group, look at the proof freely offered.
When properly installed on a machine without other issues, MCP provides about 46 mpg US on highly modified machines. On stock machines with the snorkel removed MCP provides near stock MPG and in a lot of cases better mpg. this info is based on hundreds of rider feedback reports, machines that don't achieve these numbers have issues either with the install or existing issues and i'm more than happy to help customers sort these issues. I spend a lot of time assisting people with problems unrelated to MCP that affect mcp's performance.
So, if you can fault me on ANY OF THESE comments, hats off to you.
Congratulations on the, "thousands," of kits sold, MCP!
Any plans for aftermarket products enhancing "Generation 3" fuel-injected bikes? As in, product(s) increasing power and fuel economy over stock, simultaneously?
Again, congratulations on your business success!
I did say 'indicated'.WOW---105 mph! You must have one of those high-performance MCP jet needles installed in your carbatooter!
Data's hard to come by; for example, the total number of KLR650s produced over 30 years. How many of these have KLX needles? 22-cent mods? Aftermarket doohickeys? Etc.?
As a benchmark, MCP, how many thousands of carburetor kits have you sold?
Next question: Anyone ever installed an MCP kit in a Harley Keihin (CV40)? If so, result?
