I actually picked it from a guy down in San Diego and it had sat for a while. Should I get both the barons jet kit and the barons pms adjuster? I plan on cleaning it good when I do the jetting and stuff.
I would recommend that, and I'm sure others will to. The adjustments when fine tuning the PMS(after the initial for starters setting)should be done at operating temps(15 to 20 miles of hard riding), which are way warmer then what I want to be trying to fit a screw driver into the PMS screw behind the bowl.
When removing the bowl screws, keep a good steady pressure to hold the driver in the slot, as well as when turning it. The screws are soft, and they'll conehead real easy. Don't over tighten them when reinstalling them. The kits provide a nice set of allen head screws to replace the stock ones.
Check your float level while your in the carb
Click on the pics, and they blow up. This is not the Yamaha tech manual way of doing this, but its much simpler, and it works.
By the way, the V&H
without the stock baffle is a noise animal on decel
. There is no way you'll get it to sound like anything other then a logging truck easing down a hill with the occasional pop, if you let it coast in gear.
Round up a set of stock baffles for it, and it will help alot. I recently installed a set of Big City QQ Thunder Monster baffles in mine, and tried it wide open like yours for one short trip before hand. I rode it to the DQ for a hamburger and home, and that was enough for me.
The stock baffle also buzzes ...."marbles in a bucket"..... on the decel. It vibrates against the inside of the pipes. I would recommend the QQ Thunder Monsters. I'm satisfied with the improvement they made to what I think is a really nice looking exhaust system on the Roadies.
