I would just like to thank all of you who take the time to post the very informative how to threads. I used a couple of these over the weekend to rejet and install a full exhaust and they were great.

Now if you will indulge me, I would like to brag about my results.

I installed (in 6 hours sat night) a Dyno Jet kit 2193 an Area P QC full exhaust.
What a world of difference. The bike has found itself and goes like the devil is chasing it. I didnt have any issues with the bike before this 6 hour wrenching and usually dont mess with things that aint broke, but I said what the hell. Im happy to report that the bike runs great and will hit 117 indicated. I put it all back together expecting to have to synch the carbs, but after a test ride decided that it wasnt needed. I rode almost 165 miles on the highway at 85-100 mph and have no problems.
I would like to thank all of you again, for your help.

kkim, thought I would just say thanks in person. The whole rep thing seems so impersonal to me. Because of your hard work installing my mods was a piece of cake. Id also like to thank Shade of Black, nothing like having pics in hand when your tearing your bike apart. Both of you deserve credit for a job well done.
There are other threads that were a great help, but you two deserve to be mentioned by name. Ill rep you all as soon as I figure out how. lol

Thanks alot guys from an Almost40 year old rider.

oldguy, my teenage daughter took possesion of my camera and I havent seen it since. As far as the speed goes, just try to ride the speed limit on I-94 near Chicago and they will be picking you out of the grill of a 80 mph Freightliner or you will get run over by a BMW. I was not real happy on the highway with my stock 250. After the mods its Left lane optional, at any time. :D:D:D

lol I know what you mean about the kids taking possession of (fill in the blank). Glad I don't have to deal with that type of traffic here. Not sure that would be my choice.

On the DIY issue, you are so right about the great tips and pics the core group provides for all of us. It is what makes this forum so useful and fun.

Have a great week - the JOB calls.

You're welcome! :p As much as I take from other people the least I can do is take some pictures and throw some observations around. It's a bummer ScootyScootScot isn't on here as much anymore. He was a clever fellow as well!

Damn straight. Every time I ride my 250 I miss ol' Scotty and his innovative input on KF. He really modded the piss out of this bike. Hope he's enjoying tearing up the countyside in his new Polaris quad! :Burnout:
