I just swapped the 145 jets back in and replaced the emgo filters with k&n filters. The miss is almost gone with 91 octane and now only lasts from 6000 to 7000. I am noticing something weird going...

The emgo mufflers that I got were too small so double check the inlet size. They are much quieter than the turnouts.

So uphill through all the gears at WOT and then kill it and pull over and do that for how long? Would 10 minutes be long enough?

The reason for only doing it at WOT between 4500 and 6000 is that that is where the bike is stumbling. After each run in that range I would kill the bike including the last time right before I...

It's been a while since I updated this thread. I'm making some progress, I got it running decently but there is a bog between 4500 - 6500. Then I slimmed down the seat and installed emgo megaphone...

I put in stock plugs and raised up the clips to lean out the needle jet. It did seem to make 4500-7000 hesitate less, but it is still there. The old plugs were all rich except #3 but they all...

I dropped the clip down on the needles to richen up the midrange, but that only made the problem worse. Now it shakes violently if I give it more than half throttle between 4000-7000. But it will...
