I have a couple of questions that I'm hoping you guys can give some insight on.

I have removed the Pair valve and the carb solenoid on my bike as well as gutted the rear section of the stock pipe. For the rest the bike remains unchanged from stock.

From what I have read it seems that these bikes are set lean from the factory. Will my gutted pipe lean it out much more and cause any problems without rejetting? I have read on the thumpertalk that people rekon only changing the exaust does not require a rejet but I have a lot of popping on decelleration so I'm just a tad worried.

Bus perhaps you can give some info on this: I have an SM with pure road tyres - Pilot Road 2 on the rear and Dunlop 208Sm on the front. How will these tyres hold up on some moderate dirt? I have seen photos with SM's on some in some serious offroad terrrain. :o
I have been on the odd dirt section with my setup as is but was wondering what the general feeling about this is. How rough can I go without getting into too much trouble?

you can ask bus about the motard wheels on dirt.

as for the jetting. If you have cash to go for it then do. Its worth every cent. Running lean is not good for your valves, so it would be best to have it sorted.

The popping can be cured with the mixture screw. You may have to drill out a cover to get to it. Turn it 1/4 turn at a time and test. Fidly job, I have an external screw which makes it a breeze. I think anti clockwise richens the mixture which is what you want.

Righto so I can just set it slightly richer without rejetting and that should solve some of my problems.
Ja if I remember correctly the mixture screw is hidden behind a cap - I'll see if I can drill it out tonight.

Thanks for the feedback guys  :thumleft:

I donít think you get much better flow from opening the endcap, so the jetting shouldnít be affected too much.

As soon as you put a larger header pipe, you should put richer main jet.

As for the mixture screw, you can get an aftermarket one that extends out of the bottom of the carb, like Sidetrackís one. I also have one that I imported from Kientech in USA. But you can get other ones locally, just not sure what they are called.

As for going off road with tart wheelsÖ Not the best idea in the world, but it can be done. I was actually surprised how well it coped. The biggest difference is that your front washes away much quicker on dirt with 17ís. I have Bridgestone BT56ís on mine.

So if you hit the dirt, sit back slightly and dont be silly with the throttle...

Cool thanks for all the advice.

During lunch I quickly had a look. It seems that mine had no cap over the screw. I adjusted it out by 1/2 turn already and the popping is less frequent but louder, if that makes any sense. It does seem to run a bit different - there is less of a dead spot in the mid-range and there seems to be less of a "powerband effect". The power seems to come on smoother throughout.

Haha!!!

Of course it had nothing to do with me being windgat...

It was here on site at the stadium. I didnt quite bin it, but provided some labourers with their day's worth of entertainment... Almost had a dirt highside, LOL!!! The back came round and then decided to grip all of a sudden. It musta looked pretty hilarious in a bucking bronco/rodeo kind of way...

Only just managed to save it... I cringed as the okes all made the wha-wha-wha sound and throttle-twisting gestures...  ::)

I often take the shortcut through the field to my office - it shortens the trip from 1.2km to 800m  :biggrin:
If I just chug through in 2nd and "be silly with the throttle" ;) all of a sudden the rear steps out very quickly without much warning.
