Midweek MADNESS!!!!

Ok... so... the GF is leaving this week for a couple days to visit her parents and so the operations on the Shawk will begin. Up first, I bought a mint condition Firestorm tank to replace the current dented up tank. Second I was thinking about a PAIR disable coupled with a bafflectomy. Hopefully it will all go swimmingly. Does anyone know exactly what size hole saw I need for a 98 Shawk? Also, when I baffle-ectomied my last bike I had to adjust the fuel flow. Am I going to have to do that on the Shawk? I found the KB article on it so Im just going to follow that to the letter and hope.

From memory ,I used a 53mm hole saw for the bafflectomy.

Its not essential to disable the PAIRs system. Makes no difference to the bike.

Yeah that's what I am trying to avoid. So any word on whether I have to adjust fuel flow because of a baffle-ectomy on this bike?

No, but since the instructions are simple, I can give you them here...

When not running right, change stuff...





And no, I'm not kidding... That's the most specific instructions you will get that is accurate... Start with the bafflectomy, go ride and come back with the symptoms and we will help you figure it out... But since we don't know how good your jetting is now and all the parameters, that's the best possible answer given the information...

Nah... "Eating noobies for dinner" would be to tell them there are no instructions... Which is actually true in a sense...

But it's till true, no set of instructions will ever cover all VTR's since no two of them are alike... I have worked on a bunch of them, and none of them are jetted the same, even though two of them still have the exact same aftermarket components...

ok... so I already hit a big snag. I went to every hardware store in town (2 Home Depots, 2 Lowes, and 2 Aces) and none of them have a deep enough hole saw to get around the middle pipe. Where did you guys get yours? and does anyone have theirs laying around collecting dust that I could buy off them?

Drill holes, then use a mallet on the middle pipe and break the remaining parts... Wiggle it out per instructions... Clean it with the hole saw if you like, but a small grinder is better... I found the holesaw to be mostly annoying...

Ok so I drilled quite a few holes in the baffle with a 3/8 inch bit, I guess Ill get to cutting the baffle out completely some other time. It sounds a lot better already but Im never one to do things half way :-)

I did the disable (flipped the reed valves) and it didn't do **** as far as stopping the popping on decel.
