300ex carb blues!
I am working on my newly aqured 2001 300 ex. Bought it used from a friend. I just installed new brake pads all the way around as well as heavy duty moose rotors. Cahnged the oil and filter, installed some new alum. bars "FLY", like renthall but they run for 39.99 instead, and new grips, I installed a K&N but did not get the whole jet kit. I read on this site to install a #130 main jet and drill a 2" hole in the air box lid, well I Installed a #130 up from the stock #122, but did not drill the air box lid. I moved the neddle up one psotion and turned the air fuel screw out 1/4 turn, end result it ran like crap, waaay to rich. The bike is stock except for the K&N filter so what settings and jet do I need to get the optimum performance, I am unsure what alt. I am at but I live in Owensboro Kentucky, it is right on the In/KY border. Any info would be appreciated. Also what should be my next mod. and any cheap suggestions on how to reverse those front rims, seems the valve stems hit the rotors.
