niterider Well I took my bike out this morning warmed it up and got into it. It runs great. Right away it red lined in first gear without a problem. I did not red line in the other gears, but I am sure it will. It is not a cal. bike. I am not the first owner either. One never knows what some else has done to this bikes.

niterider I did plan on rejet when I did all the other, but I have put it off BC of all the work involved. But it runs really good they way that it is. From what I read I am taking a chance on running it too hot. I run very little stop and go traffic most of it is highway riding up into 65 N 70 mph, that the fan seldom comes on until I get to the house.
I was told that the carbs had been cleaned before I bought the bike. The lead plugs were still intact.
I had used car air filters to start out with, but I could not get good performance out of it. I could not get much over 5-6,000 rpms. between shifts.
The only noticeable problem that I have is that I did not hide the carb vent hose up high enough from the air flow, that when in windy weather it will from time to time feel like the rpms change up and down some.
However, I have the jet info written down some where in case I decide I need it rejet. I will know more when I get back to riding this Spring.
I get good now I would not mind getting better.
Thanx for the help.

Are you the original owner? Are you 100% sure that the carbs have the stock 132 main jets in them?

I would be suspisous about anyone saying they are running stock jets after doing an earshave and going to pod filters, so not saying your wrong, just curious.

Do of course remember that all bikes are bit diffrent, and that is why we usualy give jet sizes as a guide, not gospel. Some have better luck with jets smaller than the rest, some with bigger ones.
As a side note...same kind of thing happened one day when I was working at a shop. The owner installed K+N "pods" on his 750 F and I was replacing a float bowl for him. I noticed the carb still had the stock jet in it and asked how come ?? Turned out that although the jet was in fact the stock jet...he had drilled it out instead of replacing it with the larger size.
So don't believe what you read either......

Do a search under "Ear Shave" and you'll get a ton of hits, including some very detailed write ups on exactly how to do it and what parts to buy (including part numbers and web sites). Right now it looks like Ron Ayers has the best price on the EMGO breather kit. $10.43 vs. $14.xx elsewhere.

Here's a link to get you started:

vjmc You will not be able achive any RPMs under a load, it will be way to lean and starve for fuel.Removing the carbs is easy without the air tank, jets are cheap and easy to install.
