  • do i need to rejet

    I have a 06 1700 road star that is completely stock as far as i know except for a k and n air filter. when i first got it, it did not idle very well and backfired on throttle let off. After running seafoam thru a couple of tanks and changing plugs to the original, it cranks and idles great. A 12 year old bike with only 7922 miles when purchased sat around alot. My questions are 2 fold. First, with the k and n filter do i need to rejet? When i changed the plugs the looked good, not white or severe carbon build up so i think the air/fuel is ok. How can i know for sure? The second question is there are 2 tabs on the back of the cleaner assembly, one goes to carb and the other one is not hooked to anything nor can i find the line to where it goes. Looking at my clymer manual, it may hook to the cylinder head breather hose, but i cant find where it goes on the engine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Remove the AIS.
    The rear valve cover vent tube attaches to the back of the intake box. Re route it to a different small filter somewhere else on the bike so oil isn’t dumped into the carb. Plug the nipple on the intake box. Read all threads here to gain knowledge. Same situation in a very recent thread. Read this ENTIRE thread below.
