Spring Mod, removing resonator bottle??"S

I just put a K&N filter and a HMF utility pipe on my Foreman 500. If I cut the spring and remove the resonator bottle, do I go ahead and change the jet and replace it with the jet HMF supplied or do I just run the stock jet?

wow, what a long thread. sounds like a great, quick mod. as usual a newbee has a few questions. i put the hmf pipe, filter, and 165 jet in. the clip is on the 3rd notch and the bike seems to be running great now.
here is my questions,.. do i cut the dyno jet spring ? if i do, when i'm in the mud when the bike is starting to strain, will this mod dump to much fuel in the carb and make the bike start spitting and popping? or is just a "off idle mod"
and how and the **** are ya'll riding wheelies with your bikes. i cant get the front wheels off the groung unless i come out of a hole under full throttle.
i have a 2006 500 4*4 cant get it to do a wheelie to save my life

The HMF pipe only came with a jet and no spring. So do I need to replace the stock jet with the one HMF supplied if and cut the stock spring? OR do i just cut the stock spring and leave the stock jet?

The pipe and the jet work best when used together...I put the jet and the pipe on AND cut the spring for the best results...I then later bought the DynoJet kit and replaced the main jet, needle, and spring for the optimum performance..

Lean back and hit the gas.... Works for us.. Keep in mind, a small bump in the road, while in water, or going up hill will help a bunch...Knowing where to try one is a benefit... Good luck...

Slidell....Just get off of your wallet...take $30 out and go to Home Depot...

Pick up :

2 Black tubes of RTV ( $5.00)
1 Wet Vac Accessory pack ( $22.00 )
1 PVC 90 degree elbow ( .99 )

Go home and SNORKLE YOUR BIKE... That and some windshield hose tubing and run your carb, differential, and fan hoses up. Then you will go handle bar deep. If that don't get your front end to float, you need to remove the cinder blocks from your front rack... Ha Ha Ha.. Cheap, well worth it, and also saftey for your bike !!!!!!

In the accessory package comes with the extention ( you use for the stack ) 10 foot of 2 inch hose ( fits perfectly into the air box ) and your done. You can not mess it up. So simple....

After you finish the snorkle...find the 2 carb hoses...the ones that just turn down and don't go anywhere.. Run these under the headlight pod. Then find the front and rear differential hoses. Run these up as well. Then find the hose that comes off of the electric fan..run this up high as well. This way, no water can come back thru the hoses and pool and start to rust.. I am going to send you a PM... I will call you this evening..
