Be careful with that LT50 restrictor

I removed the exhaust restrictor & the thing is still very slugish. So against the the advise of many I pulled the intake off to remove the restrictor there. Well that intake is small. You can't just pry the plate out so I drilled it out with a 1/2" drill bit. Let me tell you this thing screams now. It's way too fast. I'm making new restrictor plates to put back. I'm making them like the exhaust plate. I think I should have stopped with a 1/4" bit. If you open yours up be careful. The new 50's with suspension can probably handle the speed better but the hard frame 50's can't.

Damn, I didn't know that there was a restrictor there. Off it comes. I also have a Graydon Proline pipe ordered. Seems that they can't ship a product on time even though they said they could.

Re: Be careful with that LT50 restrictor

10x,

The restrictor on the intake you mentioned - is that on the inlet manifold between the carb and the cylinder?

Or between the air filter and the carb?

What's way too fast? My kid won't let me sleep until I get this thing to get him out of the deep sand. Right now, it can't get out of it's own way with the exhaust restrictor removed.

Re: Be careful with that LT50 restrictor

You were right about the manifold that is permanently attached to the carb. A Suzuki tech put the carb on a bench and bored the manifold for me. There is such a huge difference in power with the Graydon Proline pipe and carb work that I've had to use the throttle limiter for my 6 year old.

The restrictor is in the intake manifold between the carb and the cylinder. You can take off the intake without removing the carb. I say its too fast because there is no suspension, but it definately helps to get it moving. No more pushing to take off on the slightest hill.
