Pod filters arrived before larger jets, me being me I decided to start it for few seconds just out of curiosity. To my surprise it ran better than it ever has, started easy, idled smooth and had great throttle response. Took it around the block keeping a close eye on the temp and it ran cool, no symptoms of running lean and had such a power increase that I did an accidental wheelie starting in first. I'm going to play with jets sizes regardless, but I feel like running it with the mixture screws all the way in is what it needs. What do you guys think? Did I just get super lucky or is something fishy about my bike? Anyone else done this and had the same result? :confused:

I rebuilt em only a few weeks ago. Unless you mean mechanically, in which case yeah, probably. :p

Ah, I used the end of a bic pen to cover it. The plugs were in terrible shape and wouldn't hold, been checking on it periodically. Bad idea?
