The sabre1100 I posted has been jetted with a different jetkit than the pipes, do you think I need the cobra jetkit? ??????

Kits like cobra or sigmajet are great for tweaking, judge your present performance first and determine if you're in the ballpark; Is it responsive throughout the powerband? How's your exhaust looking? If the pipes are showing signs of getting too hot (chrome bluing, exhaust tips chalky white=too lean, tips black=rich).
On to the spark plugs. "Reading" a plug gives an excellent picture; after a somewhat aggressive run with out too much idling pull the plug and have a look at the porclean insulator just above the electrode gap. Best is a nice even cocoa brown. Black=rich, white=lean. I would suggest zeroing in thoroughly, then consider going above and beyond if you wish.

Where to fill transfer case

HI. On the strat the fill plug is just behind the rear exhaust pipe about one inch or so to the rear. You need to loosen the front exhaust header nuts (don\'t remove 17 ft. lbs. ) remove the rear header nuts (these are allen style 14 ft. lbs.) pull the rear header out of the exhaust port. Use a torque wrench or they will leak. Now you have enough room to install the allen wrench into the fill plug. This plug is about 1 1/2 in diameter. It is a big pain to do. Don\'t loose the exhaust gaskets or just buy new. They are about $12 each. I have reused them just a couple times then install new.

My husband and I are trying to get to our thermostat to change in my 2002 rendezvous, but there is a metal pipe in the way that we can't figure out how to remove. just behind the pipe, is a metal plate...

Hello vocalviixen,

The pipe that you referred to is the exhaust crossover pipe. Below I've included removal and installation instructions.

Also, the procedure for bleeding the coolant system is critical; if you need those instructions please post the question.

1. Disconnect the battery ground (negative) cable.
2. Remove the throttle body air inlet duct.
3. Drain the coolant from the cooling system.
4. Remove the inlet radiator hose from the engine.
5. Remove the thermostat bypass pipe.
6. Remove the exhaust crossover heat shield bolts.
7. Remove the exhaust crossover heat shield.
8. Remove the exhaust crossover pipe studs/nuts.
9. Remove the exhaust crossover pipe.
1. Install the exhaust crossover pipe.
2. Install the exhaust crossover pipe studs/nuts.
3. Tighten the exhaust crossover pipe studs/nuts to 18 lb ft.
4. Install the exhaust crossover heat shield.
5. Install the exhaust crossover heat shield bolts.
6. Tighten the exhaust crossover heat shield bolts to 89 lb in.
7. Install the thermostat bypass pipe.
8. Install the inlet radiator hose to the engine.
9. Fill the cooling system with engine coolant.
10. Install the throttle body air inlet duct.
11. Connect the battery ground (negative) cable.

When the fl comes on. is it after installing cobra pipe on the bike or just a common problem?

If you did have have the EFI system remapped to adjust for the more open exhaust, then that could account for it. You can also install a fuel controller so that you could adjust it youself.

My motorcycle came with Cobra pipes and these are

Im not very familiar with your specific bike, but I do know what your problem is.cobra pipes are usually a straight-through design, meaning they have no muffler. the ones that do have a muffler usually have a very small one. smaller mufflers mean less fiberglass packing inside to absorb all of that noise. if your not too concerned about performance, then your best bet would be to go back to a factory exhaust. thats going to be the quietest one that you can use. Im sure there are also aftermarket systems available that also use a good muffler for noise control, but pretty much any aftermarket pipe is going to be louder then the factory setup. they are designed to give your engine more performance, which means less restriction for the xhaust gasses, which also means more noise due to the more open design of the pipes. Im not sure if your bike comes carbureted or fuel injected, but keep in ind that any exhaust changes made to a carbureted engine will require carburetor jetting adjustments to compensate for the change in exhaust flow. now, if you decide that your willing to lose just a tiny bit of performance for a quieter ride, then you may be able to find a used stock system on ebay for a very reasonable price. or if you want to stay aftermarket, then most companies test the sound levels of their exhaust pipes. by contacting the manufacturers, you should be able to obtain and compare the sound decible levels for different exhaust companies to find one that meets your needs.

Looking for tips and insrtructions

the pipes are going to blue because of the heat. Try to get heat shields. they may not make them for your pipes though. if not try to get a product from a bike shop called Blue Job. It removes the blueing when you wash your bike.
