    I got lucky. Mine don't have that ridge inside. Although, in a way I was excited to see some sort of magic performance change in a bike that already runs well

    Thanks for the confirmation Murray. I guess I'll drag out the Dremel and have at 'em.

    I've been fighting my carbs for weeks now. I know what lean feels like, and the bike feels lean. I put in a bigger jet, the bike still feels lean everywhere, but wide open it falls on its face, hiccups, and gives me almost rich-running characteristics. Saw this thread today, pulled the pod filters off and ran it without any air filter... and holy shit, I'm still running lean, but now it just pulls and pulls at wide open throttle.



    Still going to drop some serious dime on Murray's carbs (this weekend even), but at least now I know why it was running like ass in a can.

    So, without wishing to sound like a complete burke!! , would it be fair to say that unless you either carry out the mods above or have pods without the ridge then that goes a long way to explain some of the issues that occur when fitting pods?

    having the port occluded just aggravates the problems the pod does not close it off completely making sure the sensing



    port is wide open helps a bit in slide response and helps a bit in overall throttle response and delay it in no way



    restores the original conditions
    GET AN OIL FILTER ADAPTER

    Order The Quick Build Exhaust Pipes


    GET A QUICKSET VALVE TOOL


    Way to many bikes to maintain this list LOL !!

    It should, yes. Some of the issues.



    Strange thing is some bikes take to pods fine. My EX500 ran with pods and a 2-into-1 with only a couple of tries with the jetting, and it was an obvious performance INCREASE, not a decrease (It would never pull the front wheel up on the 2nd-3rd shift before the pods). But the CX carb design does not do well with pods for some reason.



    Right now I'm running no filters at all, just to play with the jetting, and teh bike runs better... but still not great. Instead of spending days troubleshooting, I'm just going with murray's carbs. They're the carbs I wanted in the first place... in fact, the next step for me was to purchase the mikuni's off of eBay and figure out how to mount them... but Murray's already done all the work! He beat me to it, and actually made one hell of a nice looking kit. Even worked out all the jetting too, so that man is getting my money.

    I too have purchased Murrys kit. Although with only one jet change on my stock carbs even with the ports blocked off, the bike ran great! Not lean at all, almost a little rich. I have purchased different filters and they arrived today with no ridge inside! Course with the new carbs guess ridges wont matter much. Guess I got lucky with my stock carbs.
