Mine does the burble, or Jake brake sound on decel. My AIS is removed.
I thought it was open pipes that cause this. I just put in a different set of baffles I got from Boatmark; was thinking maybe it needs some sort of additional waskets to help baffle the exhaust. Am I wrong?
Send Boatmark a PM, and see what he has to say about the way those baffles sound. A tiscut a tasket....what's a "wasket"
A nice healthy burble is a good thing, the lean popping is something else. You'll notice the difference. The lean will probably show up in the way the bike performs as well.
Damn phone spell-check... It should be washer, I was going to try a couple of washers to restrict the exhaust flow a little.
So, if I set my carb up exactly like another bike, it should run the same, right?
Try and not deviate to much if you do find some one who has a bike exactly like, or very similar to yours where the pipes and intake are concerned. You should be able to come pretty close. You can probably tweak with the PMS
My 1600 is running fine with the poor mans BAK
(W/K&N) with V&H
Long Shots, 167.5 main
, clip in the 4th, the 37.5 pilot
(Curt and Erbman usually recommend sticking to the stock 35 pilot). The PMS at just under 3 turns out. If I was looking at a comparable 1700 set up like mine, I would bump the main to a 170(its a slightly bigger motor), and leave the rest the same.
Now, keep in mind that I'm trying to be conservative on the fuel. If I wanted some more oomph, I'd bump mine to a 170 main, for that little bit of extra at WOT
. I have the stock ignition module, and in my opinion, any more then what I have, probably wouldn't yield a significant benefit and would end up with more fuel then I needed at WOT....I'd just be passing gas
....right down the exhaust. If I had the revs to 5000rpms, I could use the extra fuel there, and would probably look for something like a BAK for the intake.
