jetting with closed airbox lid

Recommended Posts

I know Im detuning but its getting annoying riding with an open airbox. I ordered a closed lid cuz sucking in water is not fun. I have the chain drive apart and im waiting for my 13t front sprocket to come in. That should make up for any torque loss with the closed box right?

My questions are, while I have the carb apart for its winter cleaning do I have to rejet for the closed lid? It already has a Dynojet stage 2 kit in it. Also should I go back to the colder spark plug (DPR8Z). In there already is a DPR9Z

I will probably lose about the same top speed as the 14T because I am also stepping up to a 22" rear tire. I wanted the torque of a 14T but with the taller tire it would be like resorting back to the stock 15T. A bigger rear sprocket is out of the question as Im trying to gain ground clearance.

you should always re-jet when you are dealing with power/torque upgrades.

This is more of a downgrade. I have the stage2 dynoje kit in there now for the WB slip on, k&n filter and open airbox.

My question is should i downgrade (rejet) to compensate for closing the airbox?

I`d loose the air lid !!! Get an after market one:yes: You will notice a difference !!

No way i suck up way too much water now. Its only a matter of time before i do some damage. I drain the airbox approx every half hour and it always has alot.of water in it.

No sand dunes by me only wet trails :-(

I hope i make up the power loss with the 13t front. I am rarely in 4th gear let alone 5th

3and 4th gears are my favorite :laugh:13t sprocket with 22" tires will make your gears shorter

I originally was gunna go with the 14t but i have so much ground clearance problems in the trails I need bigger tires. So why go with a 14t and a 22" rear tire. It would pretty much be like factory according to the gear chart. I do alot of walking speed riding and hate having to finesse the clutch all day to keep from stalling. I am usually behind a 4x4 so they are constantly speeding up and slowing down. My clutch fingers are huge now lol. This is all theory and i hope this combo once set up works for me.

You will have to rejet because of less air intake from the solid lid. I would do a plug chop and see where you are at with WOT.

how much water do you usually have to deal with ? i ran a stock lid but used a hole saw an put 6 evenly spaced 3/4 to 1in holes in it and it really helped with the water probs. i had .. i also used a pre filter lid cover i found on ebay to cover it with to help a little more with the water issue .. and i didnt have 2 change the jet that way ... used lid on ebay is less than 10 buks an is an easy mod to help with water ..

I should of been more.specific. I run an EHS lid with outerwear membrane. I keep calling it an open airbox . But with that setup im having water issues. When i trek through water i bog down. Im assuming from it splashing up. All my connections (electrical) are packed with dielectic grease. Plus as stated before water collects in the airbox

i was reading online and i would go with the ehs

Okay so I have both in my possession for my Honda 450R now and I figure I would give a little review to help others in case they get in this situation. First I will tell you why I have both. I originally had the EHS lid and loved it but due to its height I had to switch when I did the airbox lifter and the Houser swingarm with LT linkage.

EHS

Cost - $110 - $120 with color options A bit on the high side as far as cost.

Fit - excellent, it is a stock lid with a bracket (well made) and the outerwear cover attatched

Performance - I felt no difference with the lid off or on. So I am assuming it flows enough not to let my butt dyno feel anything.

Protection - little to no sludge or debris in the airbox after messy rides.

Pro Tec

Cost - $85 - $90

Fit - Sub par. It does not fit like a stock lid. It is a flat aluminum plate with ouuterwear-type material attatched to it. It utilizes the stock clamps but is not a very good seal.

Performance - Again no change in performance so I feel the flow must be pretty good.

Protection - this lid does not seal perfectly but it does offer decent protection from the major splashing and helps with dust. Overall it protects but not as well as the EHS.

If I had to pick a lid based on the quality it would hands down be the EHS. It does weigh a bit more than the Pro Tec. In my situation the Pro Tec is thinner than a stock lid so with the airbox being lifted it clears it much better. I will add some pics to the mix soon. This way you can see for yourself what they look like.

ok while i was outside before putting on the chain, it started raining lightly. I had the seat off and airbox exposed (remember EHS lid with outwear membrane) and I was watching the water drops pool up on the lid and go right past the membrane. Does the outerwear material lose its effectiveness after a while? There are no rips or tears. I know its not waterproof but at this point its not even slightly water resistant.

      I saw this article on Motosport and thought it was pretty good. Anyone add anything?
        You might think hopping on-board an ATV and going for a spin is just as easy as taking your regular 4-wheel car for a ride around the block. After all, both have four wheels. How hard could it be?
      In many respects, you're right. Some adventure riders choose quads over their two-wheeled counterparts of the dirt because there's less chance of crashing and it's easier to learn. ATVs also offer more manageability for younger riders to get acquainted with outdoor riding than a dirt bike.
      However, beginner riders on ATVs tend to make the same mistakes that result in crashes, roll overs and injury that could be avoided with some instruction and know-how. If you're looking at a fun family outing by renting ATVs or want to get into the sport take advantage of the following points and avoid the same mistakes so many other first time ATV riders make that end their day early or before they barely get started.
      1. Nerf Bars
      Get Nerf bars. These are not soft cushy add-ons that are cousins to the football you use during backyard football games. In many respects, Nerf bars are gigantic foot pegs. Don't bother with traditional foot pegs because you'll constantly slip off and because of the "I feel safe factor" that comes with riding a quad you'll also have a tendency to let your feet drag when riding. That's a recipe for getting one or both of your feet caught in the back tire resulting in serious injury. Nerf bars allow you to stabilize your feet and get maximum control over the ATV

      Rest your feet easy on Nerf bars
      2. Rolling Over
      Believe it or not, it's fairly easy to roll an ATV over. And you don't want to be on the bottom of that sandwich.
      The most common way of ending underneath a quad is looping out. That's done by hitting the gas and having little to no experience with the power of an ATV. The front spikes up like an out of control stallion, throws you onto your back like a bucking bronco and then pins you like a UFC Champ.
      The second way is when you're having a bit too much fun sliding around in mud or other slick conditions, the tires finally do what they're designed to do and grip the ground but the rest of the bike, with you on it, keeps going.
      Finally, those who think they've found their bearings take aim for a steep slope and try to conquer it only to end up upside down or in their attempt to arch alongside said steep hill, tumble over the side.
      3. False Sense of Security
      This goes somewhat hand-in-hand with the roll over capability that many riders fail to appreciate therefore they also neglect wearing proper protective equipment. Don't think wearing jeans, t-shirt and sneakers is adequate protection when riding a 4-wheeled machine powered by a gas engine that doesn't have seatbelts. You need a helmet, goggles, gloves and riding boots at a minimum. Once you start ripping it on the track or trails add a chest protector, neck brace, knee brace, etc.
      4. Throttle Control
      Everybody wants to skip the kiddie stage and get right into hair-raising speed when it comes to riding ATVs. OK, most everybody. But for those who do so many put on the cloak of invincibility and think a quad is merely a mini car that finally enables them to release all sorts of pent up childhood inhibitions.
      So they jab their thumb into the throttle with the expectation of a controlled roller coaster ride. Instead, they loop out and end up underneath the quad or manage to stay seated only to careen off course and introduce their 4x4 to a large tree. ATVs normally have a thumb throttle and most have an automatic clutch so the clutch is one less thing to worry about. So go slow and figure out how much "thumb" is too much and get used to the speed and power an ATV delivers before really going for a ride. Oh, one more thing, learn to take your thumb off the throttle!

      It's not to hard to loop out on an ATV
      5. Loading the ATV
      Never, ever ride an ATV up a ramp into the back of a pick-up. If you want to know why just go to YouTube. If you want to know how to load an ATV check out this fine piece of quality information on How to Load a Motorcycle, Dirt Bike or ATV into a Truck.
      The bottom line to riding an ATV the first time is treat it like you would anything that comes with a modicum of danger. Careless behavior endangers you and others but with common sense and a willingness to learn you'll enjoy of lifetime of riding quads.

      And the new 300FW is already wounded. Something got in a bind and blew the whole chunk of case out around the primary drive gear at the back of the motor. In the pic you can see the crack along the top...there is a big chunk missing from the bottom. And it won't roll....but the front and rear diffs both seem fine. Unfortunate. This looks to be a bit of a project. Still feels like it will shift through gears so i'm wondering if the ring and pinion just jumped a bit and blew something to pieces.  I have a parts bike.  But will this require the case to be split and transmission completely disassembled?  I assume you can't just slide the broken primary drive out and slide the replacement in?

      I just watched this video I made ten years ago.  It made me laugh.  I was riding a 1985 Honda ATC 200X.  It's hard to film yourself so I had to position the camera to film me.  May flies out th wazoo, but I HAD to ride.  I hope you get a laugh.

      This week, the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) plans to outline proposed policy changes for ATV trails on state forest lands.  They will also be seeking public comment.
      Pennsylvania has more than 260 miles of ATV trails in state forests. The department is reviewing its policy to respond to increasing demands for riding opportunities and well as interest from local governments in expanding tourism.
      “The purpose of the policy is to provide guidance to DCNR when acquiring, developing and managing lands for ATV use by the public,” Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn said.
      There had been a moratorium on new trail development, but the policy revisions now authorize DCNR to consider new ATV trails and connectors on state forest lands.
      “New ATV trails will be considered, while still balancing the protection of natural resources as outlined in the Environmental Rights Amendment to the Pennsylvania Constitution, and the needs of all types of recreational users on DCNR lands,” Dunn said.
      In a 2016 survey of ATV users, more than 4,800 responded with many indicating a strong desire for more long-distance trails. Pennsylvania has around 285,000 registered ATVs. On state forest lands, ATV riding is allowed only on designated trails.
      Public comment will be taken at a meeting in Harrisburg Wednesday, January 22, from 10 a.m. to noon in Room 105 of the Rachel Carson State Office Building. Written comments can be submitted to [email protected]
      The deadline to submit comments is March 27.
      More information about ATV riding is on the DCNR website.

      I am trying to put a 1994 Suzuki 250 quadrunner back into service. I have it up and running like new but need to replace the plastics as they are brittle and crumbling due to age and sun exposure. I would like to purchase new parts either OEM or aftermarket but have had little luck in finding them. I would even consider used or salvaged parts in serviceable condition. Any help in locating these parts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

      First thanks for any help guys, new to the forums and it's gotten me this far. I bought a 2001 bear tracker 250 for my family to get around the dirt bikes races. It wasn't running right and had a high idle. Previous owner thought it was a carb problem, so he ordered a new Zoom carb and new intake boot, but it still had the same high idle. ( I believe he had the throttle cable adjusted wrong, because it idled fine when I put it back together) So I tore down and cleaned the stock carb, and it started up and idled fine, but needed to have the choke 1/2 out to run.  I swapped to the new zoom carb and had the same issue. Choke half out bike ran ok. I played with the needle and the pilot screw with no change. ( bike did seem to be running rich though, but didn't get better when I tightened pilot screw or raised meddle) I Took it to the races and once I started bouncing around in the cattle fields the quad started cutting out real bad. It would barely run.  Sometimes it would run with choke off, sometimes choke 1/2, sometime choke full. I cleaned carb again, checked float level, and boots, no change still wouldn't run. Then suddenly it started running ok again.  This makes me believe it's an electrical issue rather then carb. I know there's no air leak, it's been checked, both carbs are clean( I've swapped them out a couple times, it starts up immediately and usually idles fine. But then bogs down/ or stutters under throttle. I saw the post on the guy who disconnected his rectifier and reconnected and suddenly it started working again, which lead me to believe it may be electrical and not carb.  So any advice on what I should check? Any way to test the CDI or rectifier?  Once again, I appreciate your help.

      I was looking into learning how to jet a carb since it seems to be a very important part of the atv world! Found a few good pages about jetting and have a question. How would I increase the jet size on a pilot or a main jet? Would I have to buy new jets or is there a certain procedure to do so on the stock jets? Thanks.
      P.s: try to lean any replies towards a beginners point of view

      I have a 2004 KFX. I am throwing a white bros rd4 slip on for now. I know about the company already lol. I just got a screaming deal on it. My question is this:
      From stock, how many jet sizes should I go up to get this thing to run correctly? Everything else is stock, engine wise at least.
    • By kfx450r
      Weather starting to get colder..I now hear a single pop when I rev the bike up in idle. And excessive popping on deceleration. Can anyone suggest something for me? I have a 175 main, sparks needle, 2 and a half turns on a/f screw with a 42 pilot
