I have an 04 883 Custom. Cycle Shack slip-ons, Twin Velocity A/C kit. I did the rejet this weekend. Had a few issues.
Changed the 42-45...no problems there.
Took out the plug and had a 170 ready to go in. For some reason there was a 175 in there?? From what the book said it should have been 160 stock? So i just left the 175 in.
My problem is with setting the mixture and idle. I did exactly what the instructions said. But dont think its right. The bike runs great! Very strong and pulls the whole way. Heres the problem:
VERY strong smell of gas while running
Spark plugs are BLACK and wet.
While the bike is at idle, it just sounds like it will stall and vibrates alot more.
Im just not sure i got the idle and mixtire set right. Im afraid even though the bike runs great, i might be causing some problems. Any one have any input i would greatly appreciate it. Im just a little frustrated and confused.
Thanks all. I did everything the instructions said and i read the sticky about the jetting. Just was wondering about the black plugs and strong gas smell. I'll check the to make sure i have the screw two turns out.
