Question Rejet Horror Stories?

Plan to get my carbs taken apart and cleaned next week. I bought a rejet kit last year and it's just been sitting on the shelf now. Wondering if anybody has any bad horror stories from rejetting their carbs? Thanks...

I haven't needed to rejet the Vulcan at all, but I did have to do it on my dirtbike when I went from a vacuum carb to a pumper carb. Bike runs great at bottom and top end, but keeps fouling plugs 1/2 way through a daze ride?

If you use the same size jets, shouldn't be a problem at all. If you want to change the jets, though, call Jon first...

Art -

I definitely runs better with them than the aftermarket ones that were in there.

Still breaks up at around 7K rpm under wide open throttle. Not done playing around with the jets yet.

Did you make it to Leesburg or are you still on the DL? I didn't go, got roped into painting my daughter's bedroom. I hate to paint.

Thanks for the needles, really apprecaite it.

leesburg

Yeah Jon, I made it up there. I've recovered pretty well, still have that chunk missing from the knee but all the sprains and road rash have subsided
to some scars and are still a bit sore. The gash in the head has healed up and the wrist also. Rode up there with eight buddies and the G/F it was her first long distance ride and she did very well. We left Friday and took a slow ride up along Lake Okeechobee and then back roads up to Mt. Dora. Pretty much rode the country side all weekend and went into Leesburg Sunday afternoon for a few hours. Headed home on Monday had a great time and didn't rush it put on 680 miles all totaled.

Ther's a bike rally coming up on memorial day weekend out in Okeechobee
maybe we could hook up there. Here's the link. WWW.SPLINTPRO.COM.

Well I hope that needle thing straightens out....but at least ya can ride a bit.
5000 rpms ought to get ya 70 mph. Good luck and ride safe
