People mod their bikes... There is nothing new about this. Would you say, Funny everyone changes their seat on their VTX, if you want more comfort buy a car?

For me, more power was a side effect to wanting a better exhaust system and air intake. I love the look of my Arlen Ness Big Sucker and the look and sound of my Roadhouse Classic 2:1 with serrated heat shields.



Once I put the air intake on and exhaust (last winter) I needed it tuned, so I brought it to the Dyno tuner I use. I was able to pull these numbers:



My last bike was a 2005 Kawasaki Ninja ZX12r, so I came from fast.

To the OP, I clipped the "tit" on the plastic piece before I got my jet kit, the needle would wobble left and right. Once it is in place it doesn't have room to move. I never worried about it like that.

The nylon holder plate (#12 PLATE SET, VALVE) with a clipped tit.
Aftermarket needle with E-clip, shim washer and it looks straight when needle is in the slide valve.

The photo really screwed up(my eyes) bad, it looks like a raised area. >My depth perception is bad<
I had to look at my #2 slide to see the depression.
I suspect a larger OD washer was used than what MR VTX used and it jammed on the spring holder tit.
The tit may not have been clipped and has an interference fit.(take a picture of the washer/clip/needle)
Is the small spring in place under the jet holder?
I have the OEM jet needle. No clips etc. Yes the spring is in the jet holder.

Cuthbert J Twillie I mentioned how my needle slants when in the slide. It does move/spring. Take a look at the pics. It looks like the punched depression where then needle hole in was not a flat/square punch by the thicker dark line surrounding the hole. The thicker dark line seating the needle than the thinner light line on the right which would be the high side. The other pic shows the slanted needle. So, is this an issue? The needle is riding the top of the emulsion tube all the time. Not free. I've been riding with it this way since I've had the bike. Does it effect the preformance when throttling up? I don't know. Just throwing it out there. Should I replace the slide. It cant be manufactured that way.

Thanks for the info. Will check the size of the hole.
