put a screw or something in the hole,, just for fun take off the side cover for the airbox and see how it can run when it can breath, most of the restriction is the air box,,, 1) airbox, 2) silencer, 3) weld inside the header flange 4) Carb all easy quick mods. remember, an engine is just an air pump that needs to burn the air at a certain temp, it's not a black art

Many OEM silencers have a water/condensation drain hole. Where exactly is it situated on the silencer?

Photo was taken from the side leaning over as far as I dared before I ruptured a back muscle .... - my back goes out more than I do ;D

It is situated at the very bottom of the can, right in the middle and before the 4 stud flange. I checked with Catchy and he said it was like that, also that he has seen another that looks exactly the same.

Seems then that it could very well be as you suspect.

I'm sure its the water (condensation) drain hole. I would leave it open. :thumleft:

It is a water drain hole. It works, I have watched the condensation drip out of the bottom of the Sv's silencers.

Siende dat die Topic se "DR carb maintenance" en nie KykDaar's carb maintenance nie gaan ek sommer net hi jack en my stront ook hier post....

so het ek ook die naweek my carb uit mekaar gemaak en n paar intersante goedjies agter gekom:

1) Ek het n stock amerikaanse spec needle, wat op clip nr 3 is met 3 shimming washers by:
2) die "D-shelf" mod is soortvan gedoen
3) my slide is klaar gedrill (sal later foto neem)
4) daar was bitter baie stof binne die carb
5) my flout boal is silwer skoon, get nie eers effens gewas nie


I could agree with you! But then we both would be wrong.....

Punt nommer een, as jy minder rook sal jou exhaust header al blink gewees het!

Is daar net 3 clip posisies op die needle?

Jy moet die carb diaphram breather filter verbeter. Ek het stukkie uit 'n ou DR lugfilter gesny en met foam filter olie gespuit, voor ek dit voor in die bestaande filter ingedruk het. Maak die ou een eers skoon, as daar nog iets oor is!

Ek twyfel of jou "D" shelf mod gedoen is. Dis hoe die oorspronklike lyk.

Boet, ek dink jy het n stock needle, maar nie die Amerikaanse spec een nie. Kyk na foto op vorige bladsy. Die USA model needle het nie verskillende slots nie en is nie verstelbaar nie.

Dink jy het die stock Aussie needle.

ja jammer het bedoel aussie spec...

army links oom arrrmy links!!!!!

ok so ek het 5 slots is my needle....
Wat net nie vir my sin maak nie is daar is twee slots onder die clip oop, maar daar is 3 washers onder die clip....

elke slot raise die needle met 1mm.

3 washers is plus minus 1.6mm

tweede foto le die stock needle langs n Factory pro needle wat ek het.
