jetting

Why does everyone say its nessesary to re jet with a slipon? Put the pipe on, install a new plug, and run it!! Unless it falls off on top end, or, stumbles at the bottom, check the plug for the proper color, ie., chocalate brown too a tan color, and run it. Doesn't anyone "read" their plugs anymore, or, am I just "old school".
Just my opinion

Re: jetting

reading a plug is part of it, but when you make a modification that makes a the flow much more free, it will affect the way it burns. Thus, when you make a modification as a pipe or air flow into the machine, the carburation aka jetting will change. On a 2 stroke motor, if you are old school as you say, jetting is extremely touchy and you can burn up a motor of pistons if you make a mod and ride without checking the jetting accordingly. If you were to read back into this a ways, we explained to people how to test if the jetting was correct, and that was by READING the plug...but if the plug is not showing the right signs you will need to make adjustments...also...when coming from the "old school" the motors back then were not quite as high tech oriented as they are today. The machines are pushed to the max already and more mods make them even more touchy...

does that help????

Re: jetting

Hey airborn....
Thanks, I was brought up racing 2 stroke race karts back in the late 70's early 80's, and we tuned them very similar to the way you banshee berzerkers do. The karts didnt have jets to change, just low end neddles and high end needles(screw in or out)but anyhow reading the plugs and adjusting accordingly definatley works like you said.Thanks for the input.
DUNE TIL YA DIE!!!
