cant say on the injectors
all depends on how many were in stock, how many were clogged
years ago when this happened alot the factory was blamed for leaving some sort of grease on them, and we all were told he would check all the rest before sending out
I think like 5-6 came here clogged

you could always make enviromoto aware you know a kit from chris did come with a clogged injector not to long ago and ask if its been taken care of

and you can also clean it yourself if it does come clogged so you could ask what steps are necessary incase they are clogged so you could be prepared in advance or have it checked by the seller before you buy it
you just soak it in something for xxxx time I think you have to remove the oring so its not that hard
just would take time




I remember when I was stock I could do 45 up hills, I can do 55 now
but I have quite a few parts too that help achieve this



if you do ever want aftermarket exhaust and if it can be found the ncy is pretty quiet
I do have 3-4 differnet exhausts I tested on you tube with sound meters to compare how loud they are

The ncy is like stock where its internally baffled inside, there are other similar types that chris can get you but probably expensive because of the shipping
the internally baffled type will be the quietest no way to ever make them loud, and they will be heavier and not straight through flow

also the leo vince which the company closed down are quiet if it has the insert but very plain looking, take out insert its pretty loud
probably only be able to find them used now

and the new hotlaps 666 exhaust found on webike with insert is very quiet too like stock, looks really nice just runs up high over the swingarm. Have not heard it with the insert out

you may be able to find the internally baffled exhausts on webike too


2 bros has to be the loudest I ever had and alot of bass and super long for the bike, ive tried 3 different insets they sold for it

yoshimura to me is the nicest looking because the way they ran the header it fits the look of the bike and not much louder then stock at idle
driving its louder of course, but not super loud
and easy to get that one for around $375+

Thanks for all of the info again Mike. I actually am on Zumaforums - you have helped me quite a bit there! I was trying to cast a wide net for info still hanging out here! Thanks for all those exhaust options. I'll see you on the Zumaforums - Lithiumturbo (due to the fact I started out with a wee little electric 1500 watt scooter)

So I received a shitty injector. All you have to do, and I would recommend doing this regardless of whether or not you think your injector is clogged, is soak it in a small bowl of gasoline overnight. Boom, worked right away. These injectors have such fine pathways that grease and shit from manufacturing can foul them up. i agree with Mike155cc though (if you can believe that) it should come ready to go, not clogged or shitty.

I have a Yoshi pipe and I love it, opened up everything and sounds BAD ASS! lol. I like it, sounds like a dirt bike now.

For what you want, it sounds like 155 is what you need. I would go exhaust too. Mike155cc is full of shit ;-)

Find someone with a pipe in your area. That is my advice. It was the first thing I bought.

I had a slight imperfection on my pad and then rode the bike like 200ft. i have since corrected this. It was just present in this photo. My bolts are the right length. I did have to buy some when I nabbed the RRGS forks.
