I am getting rid of my kuryakyn hypercharger and putting on a K&N. (04 - 1700)
Davej says to run a 172.5 main
and a 40 pilot
. I trust him, so i'm ok with his advice on that.
I pulled off my carb
today, The main jet had no number, I had a 172.5 main which looked much smaller than the no number one I took out. Hypercharger instructions http://www.kuryakyn.com/documents/installation/9420-23MC-1011.pdf
called for a 182.5 so i'm guessing that is what it was.
pilot was a 35 and the only other one I have is also a 35.
someone mentioned on another thread to check the air jet, and set it back to stock, is this the one in the top of the carb. (# 2 in picture http://www.bikebandit.com/oem-parts/2004-yamaha-road-star-midnight-xv17ams/o/m145523#sch299904
) stock calls for a 2.0 air jet. mine had no markings on it so i'm going to replace it with a 2.0 just to be sure.
my needle has one clip on it.
so, I need a needle, 40 pilot, and a 2.0 air jet.
I plan to stop by the dealers to get the pilot and air jet this weekend.
is there anyplace that I can buy just a 4 clip needle? (maybe the jets too) I know one comes in the barons kit and i'll buy one if I need to. It is hard to justify spending $55 for the kit when I need out of it is the needle.
is there anything else that I need to be looking at to make this switch?
