Jett's KZ finished...

Post by Prof » Sun Feb 05, 2017 1:49 pm

Unfortunately I have been unable to access my photo files to continue the build story of Jett's or Terry's choppers but here are a couple of photos to show Jett's finished machine and its happy owner...

The afternoon we got the KZ fired up. Jett had purchased Mikunis for it and was told the jetting would be ok. He'd looked it up on the net and discovered the main and idle jets needed to be much smaller. We followed the internet advice and ran a 200 instead of 280 jet and it still ran far too rich. Finally pick a couple of 150's and got it closer though still too rich. We also installed smaller idle jets but couldn't get lean enough ones. However it runs and starts ok. It is now at a dyno tune place to get it right before he does too many long trips...

Nice stance, glad it all worked out, in the end.

Running very nicely now. Redesigned baffles and almost too quiet.
