I'm first in line for tires...I want something a little more agressive than the mudlights. Outlaws would be nice, but I don't think Carl is going to do that for a while , being that my tires aren't even a year old!

Sure! Whatcha Want ? Now comes the hard part. Installin'
everything. The only thing installed so far is the Snorkit on hers
(haven't had time to put mine on yet) & the lift kits on both.
Everything else is yet to be installed. I think i can do most of it.
The only thing that i'm a little weary of is the jet kits. I hope they
come with instructions.

I think u make a mistake on Lady Foremans list, it should say her wheels not my, right. Oh I see u are just letting her borrow them. Nothing wrong with early xmas gifts.

Does anyone have a 450 that is snorkeled, K&N air filter, &
have a HMF utility pipe? If so, what size jet did you use? I am
a little confused as to what size jet to use. I ordered 2 Dynojet
kits & would like to get it right the first time. Any input will be
appreciated. Thanks.

I read on HL that alot of people in your area are running 126 - 130 main jets. I would recomend you check this out. Also most of them have gone BACK to HONDA jets... 135 to be exact.

Man, i'm still lost. The Dynojet instuctions say to use the 126, but
i have a HMF,& Snorkit Snorkel. I'm guessin' to use the 130 or the
134. Highlifter forum said something about the spark plug fouling out.
Sometimes i wish i would have stayed stock & not worried about
all these upgrades. Any suggestions as to what size i should use.
I'm stressin' out over this. I want to do it right & get the most power
from it. Do i have to remove the carberator to install the jet kit? If
so, that makes it even more difficult.

the best thing to do is call hmf directly and ask them what u should use. Theyll tell you what jet and also how many turns on the fuel mixture screw.

Thanks Travis. Did you jet your carb? If you did, what size did you use?

Well, i jetted & snorkeled both. I ended up usin' the DJ 130 for now
until i get the pipes in. I will probably have to go to a DJ 134 once i
install the pipes. Truegrit, Eurobro, & Foreman Lover were loads of
help. Ya'll pat yourselves on the back. They run much better & will
pop a small wheelie in first gear. We will ride tomorrow & that will
be the real test, but i can already tell they are way much better than
before i did the jet & snorkel.

The HMF just arrived. I am guessin' that the little screen thing-a-ma-jig
is the spark arrester? I will put it on Saturday & rejet.

Put some Antiseize on those allen-head screws. If you ever want to get that endcap off at a later date.

It is a "goop" that you get at autoparts stores to keep bolts from rusting or seizeing in whatever they are in, it is usually silver. It comes in a little bottle with a "paintbrush" attached to the cap, and the most popular is the permatex brand. They probably have little packets (like ketchup) sitting on the counter next to the cash register, or at the parts counter for $0.99. Tell them you need a packet of antiseize and theyll hook you up if you cant find it. They usually try and sell you this stuff when you buy sparkplugs, I also recommend using it on the plug as well. Some garages even use it on the lug nuts of your car when they change your tires, so your lugs dont rust on.
