REJET THE EASY WAY!
Re-jetting your carbs can be a daunting task. Manufacturers of after-market exhaust systems have the ability and money to do extensive testing to determine the jetting. But, you may ride in a different climate or altitude than that of your exhaust manufacturer. This simply means that you may have to try several different jet configurations before you get just the right combination. What does this mean?
You take the bike to the dealer and pay $150+ and hope their wrench-turners know what they're doing, or...
You do it yourself and purchase an after-market re-jetting kit. The jet kit is comprised of various sized main jets and/or pilot jets and needles with the ability to raise or lower the needle drop/lift positions. This may require multiple removals of the gas tank, all related hoses, throttle linkage and regasketing of the float bowls, reinstallation and synchronization of the carbs...or, you do it the easy way with...
Dial-A-Jet. A simple product that doesn't require that you know how to remove your carbs. Easy removal of your airbox funnel and about an hour's worth of time will give you the air/fuel mix your scooter needs and you want!
On the VT1100C2 you only need to remove the tank, crankcase storage container/tube connectors and the airbox funnel. This will take you about 30 minutes. Once you've exposed the carb throats...you're home-free!
The airbox funnel (the thing that connects your carbs to the air cleaner box) is a thick, rubber inlet. The Dial-A-Jet provides the necessary tools to properly puncture the rubber housing and connect an adjustable jet that will allow you to fine-tune your mid and upper range. Here is a pic of the completed installation on the airbox:
This is a real simple device that allows you to tap into the float bowl drain plug and interface with an adjustable component that will allow fuel to atomize and enter your carbs throat during peaks of acceleration in the mid to high range of your throttle opening. The Dial-A-Jet will allow the User to mix additional fuel/air using a dial-setting for:
Stock Exhaust with stock air filter
Stock Exhaust with K&N or UNI air filter
Performance Exhaust with stock air filter, or
Performance Exhaust with K&N or UNI air filter.
