Lean or Rich on PCIII
I've had my PCIII for my F4i for about a month now. While I have noticed some significant crispness in the throttle after installing it, I have just a couple of questions I thought maybe you guys could gimme a had with.
First off, I have an M4 hi-mount sport slip on. I haven't found any maps ANYWHERE on the net or around at any shops for it. So I just naturally picked another pipe that had a 'similar' bend in the pipe. That being the Devil hi-mount. Seems to work just fine and I know the only thing I could be lacking in is just a smidge of performance, but I'm not currently running her at the track so I'm not much worried about it. Anybody have or know of a map for the M4 hi-mount sport???
Second question is about the settings. I asked the mechanic at the place where I bought the bike (whom, btw, I trust very much with my bike and questions about it) whether I should be running lean or rich on the settings. He told me that I should be running a bit on the lean side. Just HOW lean he didn't say. So I set it up so that it was sounded like it was just about to die in idle on the LOW rpm setting then went one setting UP. Then set the mid range for just about the same. My question is this: Doesn't this more or less contradict having a jet kit on a carb bike? Isn't the purpose of getting a jet kit to richen the amount of fuel that gets combusted? When I did richen the amount of fuel, it seemed almost as if it was flooding out when I twisted the throttle about 3/4 open. Any suggestions for the settings??
Last one: It says LOW, MED, HIGH on the face of the PCIII. Just what exactly is considered low, med, and high rpms? I generally never run higher than about 10 grand (cause, let's face it, you really don't need to on the streets), but is that considered HIGH or MED??? That would help a ton in setting things up.
Anyway, sorry it's so long, but this has been buggin me like mad lately. Unfortunately, it's either been too wet or too hot for me to do any real experimenting with the settings on it. Any comments and thoughts are appreciated ppl. THANKS!
