Just installed the Cruzers
I just finished installing the V/H Curzers on my 06. I drilled out the air mixture plugs and opened each needle valve 1 1/2 turns and the bike is still popping. Can I go more on the air mixture valves? how much more can I open the needles? If I slowly release the throttle the bike doesnt pop hardly at all, but if I quickly close the throttle then it starts to pop.
I ran the bike through a few heat up and cool down cycles so I could tighten the header nuts to the required Ft lbs and also installed new crush gaskets at the heads.
For those of you who have the Cruzers, how many turns did you open up your air mixture valves on your carbs? Im thinking that I might have to go more even though I dont think that Ill ever get rid of the popping entirely.
And boy ,, these things are LOUD!!!! I cant imagain what they would sound like with the baffles out. They also look pretty dam good I might add.
