earshave rejet stumbling hesitating 3-4k rpms
(Especially Krebsne, because I think you have had the same problem).
I had done an earshave on the "parts bike" but she became my full time bike when Bess fried her stator.
On the "parts bike" I was loving the rejet power, but had been experiencing a stumbling between 3-4 on the tach. The bike would kind of hesitate and slightly lurch (almost as if you were driving into an intermittent headwind) at cruising speed. Basically it was 3-4 on the tach in the two top gears. Anything else was fine, including slowly accelerating or decelerating through the bad band on the tach.
Last night I "fixed" the stumble by doing one of two things (I should have done them one at a time). I backed out the air fuel mix from 3.5 to 4 full turns. I also retightened the boots.
I think it was the boots - and here's why.
One thing I noticed about the boots was that the stock fasteners had a tendency to slip "up" the boots, or away from outermost part of the boot towards the middle. So I used a small dab of silicon as "glue" to keep the Boot-to-Engine fasteners as close to the engine as I could, and the Boot-to-Carb fasteners as close to the carbs as I could. Then I tightened them and they stayed in place without slipping. For whatever reason, they tightened up Much more snugly (that is to say I had to stop turning the screw much sooner).
Now, the stumble appears to be gone.
So if you have a post carb work stumble, I'd advise looking at the boots again, even if they seem securely fastened or tight (because mine initially did).
