I ordered a performance kit from atvdirect.com and it should be here tomorrow. But I have a few questions for the guys that have this stuff installed already.

1. is it hard to install the jet kit?

2. when i change the exhaust, is it the whole exhaust and tubing all the way to the engine?

i figured that it will come with instructions but you know how some companies can't explain things very well...

thanks guys

1. put the spring and needle in the top side of the carb first. Be careful with those 4 screws on top of the carb they strip easy, so use a good screwdriver.

Then loosen the clamps on the carb and spin it inplace to access the bottom of the carb to change the jet and adjust the A/F screw.

2. The pipe joins the header about 6" inside the fender. You reuse the stock header pipe. The stock pipe can be a BEAR to get out. Just as a warning.

The instructions that come in the jet kit, probably made by DynoJet, are actually pretty good. and have a couple pics and drawings.

How much did you pay for the kit? I orderd mine from atvoutfitters.com and it came with the HMF pipe, K&N air filter with a pre filter, and a some jets for $320 ship to my door.

I have a video of the HMF at an idol and a rev or two but I don't know how to load the video on the web site. But man by just doing the air filter 170 jet and the HMF the Foreman sounds like a beast. Runs really good to I also put that NGK Iridium spark plug too. It starts up better then when I first bought it.

I have some pics of it just disconect the carb turn it upside down take out the four screws remove the bowl. Take a small flat head screw driver and unscrew the old jet then put the new jet in. Just click the wolfemsn below my pic to the left of this form.

No I didn't buy that yet but I need to before hunting season. I believe it is only $20.00 Speaking of it I might order it tomorrow or Friday.

Yes their is a fuel mixture screw in front of the bowl it is in a shape of a D. Grab a needle nose plyers and turn it all the way down the back it out 2 1/2 turns out. Thats what I did and mine runs perfect. It even started up with no problems.

i tried that

i tried that needle nose pliers thing but i couldn't get it to turn, it looked as though it was going to strip it if i kept trying...

there isn't enough room in there to get a grip at it...
