Alright here is an update. Made some crazy good progress so I'm excited AF.
installed the estoril pipe (Thanks Ken). was trying to get it dialed in. started with a 185 main and 22.5 idle.....worked my way down to 130 main and 17.5 idle ... was still super rich and boggy,
Took off the air filter and tried to start it but it wouldn't start till I pulled the choke lever. took it for a ride with the choke pulled and no air filter and that thing RIPPED HARD. blasted me to 37 mph with amazing acceleration till I eased off the gas.
so it seems that the air filter was choking off all the air. I put my mouth up to it and it was pretty hard to blow air through it.
So my next question is- can I just use panty hose for an air filter ? has anyone tried this? I know its ghetto but as far as function is there anything that will be detrimental ?
rather not wait or spend money on a new filter if the panty hose will work fine. please let me know what you guys think.
I will go back up on my jetting and rejet the idle and main jet with a panty hose filter just because I want to make sure I am not running lean since the bike only ran on choke.
thanks very much! Very excited...would tune more tonight but its past midnight and my neighbors will hate me.
