I did it! 🤸@procycle.us jet kit installed and he fired right up no problem. Will need some fine tuning. Swipe all the way right to hear the new #dgexhaust I know many of you think this is easy, but for a new rider/mechanic, this took everything I had over the last few days. Started by loosening all the cables, all lubed. Plastic choke nut replaced with billet @warp9_racing version. Yesterday, I got the carburetor out after futzing with trying to get all the pipes and cables off. Managed to strip both Japanese Industrial Standard screws on the bottom 😠 Got the Dremel tool out to cut notches to use a flathead screwdriver, but could feel the soft metal heads rounding out. Got the vice grips out but couldn't get any purchase on either head. Took the carb to Windbell motorcycles and their mechanic took one look at the panic on my face and took the carb into the back only to emerge two minutes later with the largest needlenose vice grips I've ever seen and popped them both off with ease. Thank you 🙏 Got the new jet installed, the new needle and fuel/air thumb screw in. Adjusted the float bowl so it sits parallel to the side of the carb. Cut the air box today, got the exhaust snugly in place with loctite and put it all back together again. There was a lot of swearing and anxious moments in that garage since Saturday 🤣 Just got back from the first ride. There's definitely more power, but it's missing at the top end and still feels a bit throttled as though there is still more power to unleash. Will fine tune...

#repost @valleontour ------------------------------- Durante mi niñez era muy especial para mí rodar con mi papá. Aparte del viento en la cara y el sonido del escape en mi oído ver venir a motociclistas era muy especial para mi. Mientras a mi papá no le importaban otros motociclistas para mí era una cosa grandiosa. Tan pronto como una motocicleta venía mi emoción aumentaba. No hice nada y esperé hasta el momento indicado, ni muy tarde ni muy temprano. Aunque ya han pasado 20 años saludar motociclistas es una cosa importante para mí incluso hoy Saludo a todo motociclista sin excepción a la final eso es lo que une a los que nos gusta este Hobby Y tú tienes algún recuerdo o ritual mientras ruedas? ・・・ During childhood, it was very special for me to ride together with my father. Besides the wind in the face and the exhaust sound in ear, oncoming motorcycles were the real highlight for me. While my dad did not care to greet other motorcyclists, it was the biggest thing for me. As soon as an oncoming motorcycle was in sight, my excitement went crazy. Don't do anything wrong and wait for the right moment. Not too early, not too late. Although more than 20 years are now gone, to greet motorcycles is still something very special for me. Even today, I greet every motorcyclist without exception and for me it is the epitome of the community that unites us all with this beautiful hobby. Do you also have a memory or a ritual, which you associate with motorcycling? --------------------------- #valleontour#rizoma#swmotech#wilbersproducts#martinedition#allesfürdasbestebild#klimlife#michelin#adv#advrider#advaddicts#bikersofinstagram#gstrophy#bikelovers#enduro#endurolife#offroad#bmwmotorrad#bmwgs#makelifearide#r1250gs#gsadventure#bmwadventure#spiritofgs#lovetoride#motorcycle#moto#bikelife#instabike
