Hello all, I just got a CV carb off Ebay to replace the leaking Bendix that is on the 83 XLX I just got. The CV came with a thunderslide kit already installed. After reading all the post I think now I would have perfered it without the Thunderslide kit installed. My question is does anyone have any suggestion for Jetting on a CV/thunderslide on an Ironhead. From what I've read here so far 45slow and 175main tend to be the ideal start for jetting, but how much would a thunderslide kit throw that off. Oh, I also have new cycle shack pipes coming and am looking into a new air cleaner. Any thought are greatly appreciated.
The addition of the Thunder Slide does not change the jetting requirements for your bike. Start with Jetting 101 by stevo, and tune by paying attention to the symptoms. 45/175 should be fine to get you running.
Thanks again, you guys are a wealth of information. One more thing if anybody knows. Could I re-jet with the main with a stock Keihin main jet or does it have to be a Dynojet main jet. From what i understand this kit when installed comes with a Dynojet emulsion tube and main jet.
I'm pretty sure your stock main won't fit in a Dynojet emulsion tube. Today I tried the other way around and found the Dynojet main jet to be too small in diameter for the stock emulsion tube.
