Number 8 revised

One of the many benefits of building your own bike is the freedom to choose and or alter what your not really 100% happy with.
Whilst building number 8 i did wonder if a silver paint job on the motor would be right for the bike, well turns out it wasn't so here's number 8 version 2...

  9. Hi I have a question about jetting. I have a nx650 with k&N filter and crf250 silencers. Bike runs but I have problems with dropping idle and deceleration poping. Any advice of what main, slow and needle setup to start with?

    1. I always used the 180 main
      jet and stock pilot.
      I also raised the needle 1.5mm.
      Hope this helps.
