Do I need to rejet the carb??
I have seen this discussion a couple times pop up but I could not find a definite answer.
1987 Honda rebel 250. I removed the air box and installed an emgo pod filter. Still have the stock exhaust tho and do not plan on modifying that.
This is kind of a specific question that im hoping someone has dealt with and tinkered with before. Soo what I am asking is should I rejet my carb to compensate for the pod air filter? Anddd if so do all the jets need to go up a size.. or multiple sizes.
I read that the 85-87 models run richer and can have straight pipes without needing to rejet as long as the airbox isnt messed with. Does this mean that a pod filter is fine as long as the exhaust isnt messed with??
The bike is running fine, I think. I cant really tell if its runnning how it should or if it's running too rich/lean. one thing I have noticed is that the exhaust pipes may be getting excessively hot. I wrapped my exhausts and the fiberglass material wraps were nearly burnt all the way through after one 30 minute ride. Not sure if thats normal or not.
Uhh also in case its important, I have my breather running directly into the pod air filter through a small mesh inline filter. picture of that is attached as well.
Hopefully this is my last question for you guys lol. seriously considering naming my first born kryton or flitecontrol or shadowshack. krycontrolshack?? Attached is a before and after of my bike, this forum helped out a ton.
