davej, (and others also) I do have kind question on AFR readings. I did purchase also Innovate gauge and planning to start carb
tuning as season starter once desperately expected spring comes. As previous season end I did change my setup to RC1980 filter and Barons jet kit. I am newbie with AFR gauges and so expecting nice things to be learned in here.
My initial question concerns on ambient temperature effect to AFR. I am planning to use gauge only as measurement tool and get it off once tuning is done. I live in cold climate and expect carb tuning to happen at 40-50F temps due early season. Typical on season temp, where most of riding happens is around 70F.
How much I should adjust my AFR targets due this expected delta 20F on temps? 0.2? Or even higher.
I have read more or less all existing writings on this forum concerning AFR details and several cases there mentions on effect of ambient temp. Secondary extremely helpful detail would be also some rule of thumb on how much one step in main
jet effects on AFR. And same case similarly with needle. I bought Barons kit due I got educated, that Barons needle is easier to tune than stock.
I am dreaming to be able to hit very right spot with AFR due gas is damn expensive here (north Europe). Record has been 8USD/gallon. I cannot go to safe side against lean.
If you guys are willing to chat more, I would like also to speculate with my AFR targets. Yes, there is plenty of good numbers existing already in this forum and based on those I have set my targets already. Previous season, with stock carb jetting, stock air cleaner and drilled pipes (maybe stage2, not sure due it was done by some previous owner) setup I reached 50mpg as average. I know, that it is lean and I was lacking power due that. I think I afford to go little bit up perhaps to 42mpg or so.
Thank you already!
