  • First ride results after some mods

    Over the last few months I did a few things to my 2002 Road Star 1600.

    Removed fuel pump
    Grizzly needle (but didn't adjust float)
    Rejet carb with Baron's kit
    Mikuni pilot 37.5 jet
    Bassani Dual exhaust
    K&N open filter
    OEM manifold with new O rings (not ported)
    Removed AIS

    I finally got out and rode about 400 miles the other day. Bike ran fine and seemed like it had more power and better response at the throttle. Today i pulled the spark plugs to check them and here's what i found.

    The order of plugs in the 1st pic is

    Front Left
    Rear Left (was wet when pulled)
    Front Right
    Rear Right


    The 2nd pic is the plugs that were in the bike when I got it and pulled before all the above mods. At that point it had a stock air filter and unknown aftermarket exhaust. Carb was all stock but i did notice the brass plug covering the PMS was already removed when I took it off.

    Jetting should be 167. 5 main and 37.5 pilot
    PMS should be at 2.5 turns out from gently seated
    Didnyou get an adjustable needle or stock?

      Sorry, it was a 37.5 pilot jet. And i used the adjustable needle in the baron's kit. PMS took some tinkering to stay running without the enricher so i don't recall how many turns it actually ended up at.

        Clip on 4rh groove?
        Adjust idle and then pms AFYWR bike is good and hit from a 20+min ride.... Honestly 2.5 turns out for pms will get you just about there. Bikes I've done liked 2.5 with pump and 2. 75 on same setup after pumpless for some reason

          5th groove actually....let me bump that up! I believe the instructions said 5th but i know you guys have the real world solutions. Let me bump that up now! Should i get new plugs or put these back in? Also do you tighten your plugs to a torque spec?
