Dynojet explanation please!

So I recently bought a nice 1997 Triumph Trophy 3. It runs great, looks great and rides nice. The problem? The previous owner installed a set of "Oh my god what was that?" loud D&D pipes and a corresponding Dynojet kit. I ordered a set of stock pipes from Ebay to kill the dB level and pulled the carbs to lean it out to match. The factory jets (which he gave me) are 120 on the outside carbs and 125 on the center. The Dynojet install instructions call for 124's with aftermarket exhaust, 120's for stock exhaust and it also comes with a set of 116's in the kit. I put the 120's in but can't figure out why you would replace the factory jets with the same size and even smaller in the center carb to get more performance. The pipes haven't arrived yet so I haven't ridden the bike yet so I don't know how it's going to run. Should I go with the 120's? Install the 116's?
The kit also has needles, emulsion tubes and calls for some auxiliary slide lift holes which have all been installed.
Please someone explain what this kit is going to do for my bike!

DJ jets numbers are not the same as stock numbers, for instance, a DJ 120, may be the same as a stock 125.

If you had two same number jets, 1 DJ, 1 stock, the DJ will have a slightly larger hole.
Somewhere i saw a chart that had the DJ to stock conversion.

As far as jet numbers what he said. What the jet kit will do for the bike (if tuned correctly) is smooth out the fuel curve,improve response and providing the fuel delivery was insufficient (rare) up top increase power. Take your time and tune from the bottom to the top,i.e. pilot jet to main. DynoJet kits tend to rely heavily on the needle for low-mid delivery so in rare occasions to get it clean from bottom to top you'll need to increase pilot a size and drop the needle a click.

Have fun.

Check the needles for groves for wear or stepping. DJ kits are notoriously crappy DAHIK as opposed to the coated stock quality needles. The kits typically tell installers to drill the hole in the center of the slide larger,usually 1/8 in size. I had a 97 myself and cant recall different size jets in the center carb. The bike was hugely affected by air box mods also. You'll find 2 snorkles and only one open. The one thats open I put a Uni filter sock on as a pre filter because the stocker is a PITA to get at.

You might want to send a PM to inmate 'motolab' and point him in the direction of this thread. Derek can help you decipher the DJ jet sizes and might be able to assist in getting you back to stock (or a properly running set up).

PM recieved.

Are you sure the main jets are not 125 on the outside and 120 in the center as original? In any case the sizes sound like the carbs are Mikuni BST36 rather than the later Keihin CVK36. Can you confirm?

Regards,

Derek

Yes, they are Mikuni's. You are probably correct in the outside/inside sizes. One of them is scratched on the surface and I can't read what it says.
The bike ran great with the big 124's and obnoxious pipes but I want to quiet it down to a respectable sport-tourer and make it run right with the stock pipes. I fired it up after putting the 120's in and it seemed to have a crisp throttle but I haven't ridden it yet. This bike is so loud that I can't stand to ride it and I don't want to assault my neighbors with the noise.
Hopefully the stock mufflers will be here today. My intention is to put them on, take it for a ride and see how the butt-dyno feels. If it's good then I'll put a few miles on it, check the valve clearances and sync the carbs.
If not, let the tuning begin.

46,000 on the bike. Not sure how long the Dynojet has been in there. The carbs looked great when I pulled them off. Clean and clear.

The first thing I would recommend is to inspect the slide guides & slides. At 46K miles, the slide guides are likely to be completely worn out. See http://www.moto-lab.com/gallery/view?itemid=262, http://www.moto-lab.com/gallery/view?itemid=295, http://www.moto-lab.com/gallery/view?itemid=263, http://www.moto-lab.com/gallery/view?itemid=296, http://www.moto-lab.com/gallery/view?itemid=264 and http://www.moto-lab.com/gallery/view?itemid=297. I recommend replacing the slides if the slide lift hoes have been drilled, and/or if there is vertical grooving on the downstream side.

Regards,

Derek

Thanks, hopefully it'll just run OK and I won't have to worry too much about that. Can you share a price on the parts?

Thumb Trophy Carb Tuning

I have a 1995 Trophy 4 1200, a 95 Daytona Super 3, 95 Speed Triple and 1998 Tiger. I have a lot of experience with carb tuning. The first thing I would do if going to stock mufflers is get rid of the Dynojet kit, emulsion tubes, jets and needles, especially if you have all the stock items and don't plan to race your bike. Don't be concerned about the enlarged vacuum hole in the slides, they will not be an issue. The stock set up is pretty good with the exception of the primary jets being a tad too small (EPA lean). I used a number drill bit one size larger than what will go through the low speed jet by hand to enlarge the low speed jets by about .001". It will be a lot less cold natured on cold starts and run much better. Also set your air bleed screws 2.5 to 3 turns out. You can look up your model stock jet specs on BikeBandit.com web site OEM parts fiche to get a starting point. By the way, you can reduce the sound level of D&D cans by about 40% by installing nozzle restrictors made by Staintune for about $25.00 each.

Cheers, Steve

Jets R Us will have stock specs on your bike on their website and what jets are available. Again the drilled slides will be ok.I wouldn't drill your own jets if you've never done this or you'll end up buying new jets anyway. Even with stock pipes it'll still run better than stock with the jet kit setup for stock. I'd go this route , plus you've already got the parts and info. From the factory most bikes are too lean on the bottom so they meet emissions. Your jetkit is your freind , not the devil.
