Jetting, full exhaust, air filters, need a little education.
Alright, I have the 2011 250, and I'm looking to get the Jardine Gp1 full exhaust. Now I've read that I don't need to re jet it off a couple posts on here, is that true? I'm probably going to get the full system and K&N filter at the same time, which will need a re jetting, that I know. If I just get the filter and jet the bike, could I just install the full system and not have to re jet? As far as which jet to get.... I'm lost. My dirt bike was the easiest thing in the world, I just had to buy the jet for this climate and pull the needle out two clicks, but the more I read on jetting a 250, the more I'm lost. How do I know what jet kit to buy? I live up pretty high 3,700ft, and I bought the bike from Portland which is around the 1,000ft area. Then with the added mods...ahh I think I've been over reading. I just need some help on which jet kit to buy for this climate and the full exhaust/air filter set up.
On a side note, can you guys start your bikes without choke and have it idle fine? It seems even when its 70 out my bike still needs choke to get the idle steady.
Sorry for all the bounced around posts. I get side tracked when I get to thinking.
