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.

thanks for the encouragment, a freind of mine just orderd the a/f meter from hunterworks w/some extra bungs hopefully this will make my life easier, you would think that dragonfire would do a litltle testing before they sell a performance package

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!

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?:eek: 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.

tbone, the dragonfire jet kit was designed around my teryx, i bought my teryx in
az, had it delevered to dragonfire to install everything you have plus long travel. i had the same problem it was extremely rich, you are still to rich, i now have muzzys, mine runs great, but you need to come way down in size, .070 thousanths is what they are for the muzzy, you should be close to the same maybe a little richer on the rear cylinder, .070 is around a 150 to 160 kehin jet, im not sure what that works out to with the dynojet numbers, i gave up on there numbers. hope this helps

i have the afe, dragon fire duals, dynatek cdi and coils, dynojet kit, did not require drilling the slides but did come with weaker springs, I am at sea level, 2nd slot on the needle and 185/190 main jets,
had the mixture screws out 2 3/4 turns and it was okay, ordered a set of pilot jets (#45) and went to 1 3/4 turns out and it cured the poppping and accelerates much quicker from idle, if you order pilot jets keep in mind kiehen has two sizes 5.5mm and 5mm you need the 5mm for teryx.
