please help w/jetting

My teryx has the dragonfire dual guns, afe intake, dragonfire cdi, and dragonfire jet kit, I run an average of 2000 feet elevation, the jet kit required drilling the slides, which I did, also new needles and springs, the jet kit recomended 195 and 190 jet and needle pos. 2. I tried that and it ran extremely rich, it popped bad on deceleration and would start popping around 48 mph on acceleration. I dropped the jets down to 185 and 180 and the needles down to pos. 1, it helped with the deceleration popping, and now starts to pop at about 53 mph, should I go leaner yet or may I have something else wrong. thank you for any input

The quick answer is keep banging your head against the wall until you get a A/F meter and measure it. It's all trial and error and F'in fustrating as hell sometimes.

Todd from HW will say the same thing, the instructions will get you in a ballpark. Every engine is slightly different, so you do have to tune. You'll find that the meter is way easier than without casue you'll see the reading and not have to use your senses to try and guess what to do next. Then once you get it perfect the weather will warm up and everything will change!

If you have the Dragon Fire Exhaust that is very loud and is a straight thru design, you may have a very tough time getting the decel pop out.

Why would any company want you to drill the slides???. This makes no sense to me. Please teach me somthin' new. Not every one that buys a kit is going to have the skills to drill a slide none the less even re-jet. Just wondering? I'll never rejet anything without my WEGO 3. Your crazy to gamble with your investment.

Hey T-bone,

Make sure you have quality fuel running in your machine. I have a friend that ran an off brand of race fuel through his teryx and it was popping real bad. (AC exhaust)

Sanface,

We have you drill a additional small hole in the bottom of your slide with our kit too. This helps the slide open up quicker. Dynojet Jet kits require you to do it on most of their kits too. This is nothing new and proven to work.

Skills to drill a slide?? Put drill bit in drill, hold slide in hand and drill a hole at the seven o'clock position. I guess I am picking here but this ain't rocket science. The correct size drill bit is included with kit by the way.

Go over to our website and watch the install video of the carb kit.
