Hey Kev, I used the JD Jet Kit for my 530 with good results. I split the settings between the red and blue needle settings for altitude variation, and it seems to work well. It's a tad bit cold blooded, but otherwise fuels really well.

what year is yours? I think DCH said that my 2010 carb is the same as those after 2007.

Name these tools!

Can anyone list these tools for me? Also, where can one get the right size plug socket?

having difficulty starting and bogging down a little when running. I haven't been over yet to check it out. I thought it was a 41mm carb instead of the stock 39mm so I jetted it for 41mm according to the JD jetting, which should be rich. It was running great at regular temps with this jetting though, 4-9K just fine with no issues, just a little popping on decel and likely not related to exhaust leaks because I plugged those. So I think it might be the same as Kev's thinking, just the colder air/changes in the season. But in theory that would make it run a little better in the cold, not worse, ifs its jetted rich because colder = more air, right?

Also we might as well adjust the valves too and make sure those are in spec...

This is the problem with selling bikes to friends..

Not starting... idle for 30 seconds, upon any throttle it dies. He put the carb on in the summer and i think its just not jetted correctly. We're going to go through it soon. I was just hoping someone had the same carb dialed and could tell me where to begin.

Oh yeah, I meant to call you. You see what happened was, well, the bank put
my $100K in the wrong account. They were very sorry about the mix up and
say it should be fine now. Would you mind running it through again?

Better yet. I'll write you a new check for $5,000 over what you are asking.
You give me $4K back and that way I have Christmas money while you
can deposit the check on the 1st and make an extra $1K!

Merry Christmas!




Speaking of scams. I just found out today someone created a fraudulent web site
on the family candy buisiness. People are now calling wondering where their online
orders are? Never had a website. I found it and it looks very legit. Called the FBI
because I assume they said they would ship over state lines. Interesting to see
what will happen.

For inquiring minds,

DO NOT COMPLETE THE ORDER IF YOU CLICK ON THE LINK..........

Looks like a great web site to me.......

A JD kit should get you pretty close unless the pilot is plugged or the oring on the fuel screw is broken.

Colder air would make it run leaner.

You can also be lean at one throttle position and rich at another.

Once its warm does it still stall when you hit the throttle?

I can get to idle for a minute, then it dies. If i hit the throttle at all it dies.

I keep my garage at about 50 degrees. It was certainly running fine in much colder temps when we did that last tour. I lubed the chain but that didn't help either.

Well, if lubing the chain didn't fix it, you're BONED!

Just a stupid question, but you aren't leaving the choke on by any chance are you? Mine will stall at the slightest throttle once it's warm enough to run without it.
