I have a 98 blackbird and I am thinking about replacing the exhaust with something a bit more tone ! I have been told it would be best since this bike is carb'd to install a jet kit when I do that.

Anyone have any experience installing a jet kit? Is it something easy to do?

Any exhaust manufacturers I should definitely stay away from?

Thanks,


JP

It was easy on my SV... it's a matter of taking off the airbox, pulling the carbs, and then swapping out the Jets.

I would recommend a jet kit with your exhaust. I think the instructions with the DynoJet kits are very good. The Factory Pro kits are excellent but I think they assume you are pretty familiar with jet kits in their instructions.
If you need a hand you can come out to Winchester and I'll help you...

Let me know Steve I would love to put one in another bike other than an R1. I think DynoJet gives you needles and all and the Factory is just Jets. May be wrong but thats what I was told. Would love to help. Holla

Anytime JP...let me know.
Trick, the Factory kit for my ZX-9 came with mains, pilots, air jet drills, emulsion tubes (what the main jet screws into and the needle slide in), and bowl screws. It was by far the most comprehensive and difficult to insall kit I've done (15+).
But the results were worth it. From my research it is the only kit that gets rid of the flat spot on my bike and it worked like a charm. Don't know about power gains as I haven't had it on the dyno but the improvement in throttle response was the reason for the kit for me. Be glad to have you come over and help...

Thats good info Steve. My Kit came with needles,main,and springs. Hell anyone can put one of these in. After you have to get the carbs syncronized but hell only $30 for me at Blalock. We will have to hook up and do this. Just let me know ahead of time for preperation. I bet Ronnie would like to help out. Lata

Different kits come with different stuff. A factory jet kit for an R1 might have bigger mains and not come with needles. A dynojet kit might come with smaller mains and more tapered needles. It's a cumulative effect. Each item affects the other.

side note..

Dynojet jet numbers DO NOT correspond with Mikuni jet numbers. I found this out the hardway when I pulled 152.5 mains out of my Vmax to switch with a set of DJ160 (logical...it was the next biggest jet in my kit)
a DJ160 = mikuni 150.
Can you say ran like shit and I couldn't figure out why?

I slapped in the DJ170s (close to a Mikuni #155) and the bike ran like a raped ape.
Dynojet supplied new needles but I pulled a cleaner HP line with shimmed stockers.


If you drink and ride, I have no pity for you. At all, ever.
