hey, slamd... how'd you like those classics? i just put a set on my spirit, too. they do rumble - maybe a little too much? hope i get used to 'em. mama hasn't ridden on the back since they've been on, either, so they'll have to pass the "her-test".
i think i'm gonna like them lots - hope i can keep em.

I love them, they sound great when you lay into it but theyre pretty mellow when youre just cruising. I had my girlfriend on the back yesterday for about an hour and she loved the rumble.

Um ... the gentleman in me requires I not make the obvious comment. :D

That we ride on 500 lbs vibrators?

I got's ta know.......have you re-jetted yet??????

Glad you like them, they do sound pretty good. I like the fact that you can mess with the packing to change the sound.


Later,
I'm gonna bite the bullet and probably tear into it this weekend. Any little tips or tricks I should know?

Not really, just follow the jetology sticky and dynajet instructions to the T. Are you getting any decel popping right now? If not, leave the idle screw alone and see how it does after jettting.

Like any carb be gentle around the floats and be patient trying to get the carbs out of the frame...they will come out I PROMISE. :wink:

BTW how did it run not jetted- any missing at WOT?

I'll be around most of the day tomorrow, in and out but not for long, so if you get stuck give me a call.
