SOURCE: Installing an exhaust
but I was curious if I need some sort of rubber seal or a sealing compound for it. Thanks a lot!No you dont absolutly need it but it would be smart to have because I had the same thing happen on my yz125 and the carbon went everywhere and staind my swingarm. I just used a piece of old radiator tube because it was cheap and I didn't have to order it.,

i looked up in the book for jets for your bike,i diden't see any.you could try to drill out the jet but they are brass.and very fragile.unless you are a machinest.also did you upgrade your air filter to go along with your new exhaust?

Hi, when you change your pipe to the FMF you reduced the back pressure and gave it more flow. That causes it to run a little "rich". Look at your spark plug and check the color of it, it should be a nice tan color. If its a dark brown then you need to "lean" out your bike. The easiest way to do that is by taking the slide out of the carb and taking out the main jet, the lock washer is set to the middle position for a stock set-up. Move it down 2 notches and then run it and see what your plug looks like. The black "goo" is the unburned oil from not running lean enough. Another trick to try is run a NGK-EV plug. it burns hotter so it will help with the oil problem (and make it a little more snappy also). And as an added bonus it will be easier to start.
