First time I ever upjetted and got "better" mileage......Dew.
DJTI have just done the new header and short sliencer with no PAV etc. I want to retain the std circular filter in the rhs tool box though. Would you just keep to the std jets and 'play' with the air bleed screw or go the 130 and 30 jet route anyway?
Interesting, thanks guys. That is one of my planned changes this winter. Take off the PAV, add an older pipe that has no cat converter in it and rejet it. Not looking to make it a speed denom, just get it running like it was originally designed for. I'll keep your jet sizes in mind. Hey Dew, what pipe did you put on your bike? I guess the more open the exhaust, the larger jets you need.Quote from: dewjantim on November 04, 2007, 11:48:19 AMFirst time I ever upjetted and got "better" mileage......Dew.My Bandit 1200 was horribly lean when I got it, I upsized the pilots, and opened the air screws and the mpg went up as well. I guess if it runs better and smoother, you keep your right hand off the loud handle, which results in better mileage.
Same here, where did you set your needle? Kept mine in the middle. The transformation my bike had after that mod was unbelievable! Like I've said before, my bike in stock form was downright dangerous to ride.
