07 V Star 650 issues after jet kit fail
I'll attempt to keep this short. I have a 2007 V Star 650 Classic, Cobra slash cut slip on exhaust and stock air.
Due to decel poping, I disabled AIS, which helped w/75% of the issue. After reading many threads about this issue, I got a Dyno Jet Stage 1 jet kit. (Yes I know, I could have just got jets for a lot less. Read those posts after it was too late).
I installed needle jets and main jets as instructions, double checking twice before buttoning up. Set PMS screws to 3 rotations out as per instructions.
Everything seemed to work ok at first, until first test ride. With bike warm and after riding for about 15 minutes, came to stop light and it died waiting for the light to turn green. Strong smell of fuel, as it bike was running too rich. Bike stalled at every stop light/sign on the way home. Got home and hit the forums. After some reading, I started making slight adjustments to PMS screws. Nothing seemed to really work. It either ran too rich or wouldnt keep running at idle.
Took out everything installed for jet kit and put back in stock parts(advised from local shop). Set PMS screws to where it was before (front 1 1/2 and rear 3 1/2 rotations out). Runs better, still difficult time to maintain solid idle. Had to step up idle speed to keep running while sitting in garage. Took it for a ride and noticed that while trying to open it up between 3rd and 4th, it would fall in its face sputtering. If i let off, it cleared up. This was a first.
Im going to replace fuel filter and clean out the pilot jet holes on Monday. I've checked for air leaks, plug fouling and jets installed. I've read a lot of other threads and hope I didnt miss something. My apologies if I did.
Any other suggestions or ideas? Thank you in advance.
