What size jets are you running?
Tried searching for a jetting page but didn't find it. Been a while since I posted anyway.
Have a 2005 V-Star 1100, it has the pod mod and BUB exhaust. Just cleaned out and tuned the carbs, adjusted the valves and cleared the vacuum lines, along with a tune up. Bike doesn't run bad, but keep noticing something off with the idle.
My brother was ridding behind me today and noticed that when I get on the throttle it starts letting out some black smoke. Have been thinking it was running pretty rich anyway.
It was rejetted when the pods/exhaust were put on to:
Forward Carb: Main jet 142.5 and pilot jet 22.5
Rear Carb: Main jet 140 and pilot jet 22.5
Maybe I could size down? Curious what others have tried with similar mods.
