Hi y'all. Been on here for a while and it's been a pleasure creeping and learning, but never posting. Sorry. Selling my bike. Summary: not running, clean title in my name, needs TLC. Got no time to work on it. Here's the CL link. Make an offer. Not delivering.

Fair price and good money for the bike.

For the experts: was that a Strader 3-1 on his bike?

He lowballed me from $1600, so not that fair when it came with a bunch of other stuff. No idea what exhaust.

Spare parts can add value. I've learned to keep most of the spares to resale to recoup some $. Alittle bit of work but helps out. As long as you are happy with the deal, that's all that matters. :up:

Why yes it is/was a Strader 3 into 1. At the time Strader claimed that their pipes made more power than stock. That doesn't reflect what I found, but they sound great and feel as strong or stronger than a stock exhaust on the street.

Biggest advantages are weight saving and the sound. The sound. Did I mention how good they sound? :roll: :wink: :lol:

Thanks tz- thought it might be one. I've heard them on the youtube and they wail quite nicely.

When I get the Jemco 3-1, I'll need to pick your brain (and other gurus) on jetting stock BS40 CV catbs with stock airbox setup with the Jemco 3-1.

That's easy. Fit air jets (anti surge just to be sure) and leave the pilot jets stock. I have heard that changing to chambers or a 3 into one reduces teh surge effect, but if the carbs are on the bench, it's easy to fit the air jets.

Go up a couple of sizes on the mains. I ended up with 112.5 on the Dunstall with a Jemco and stock airbox and filter. Needle is stock OEM 4DN18 in the 4th groove to richen up the mid range a touch.

Much appreciated tz! I ordered the anti surge air jets (with tap) from Baz. On those main jets, are they called large round? Are they possibly the same MJs used on the Kaw H2/ H1?? I want to make sure and source genuine Mikuni ones but do have a Kaw H2 jet kit assortment. The 110s are still available through Suzuki but the 112.5 are NLA. I've been into my BS carbs once and will admit I am not experienced with these CV type carbs like I am with VM style ones.

So not to keep jacking the OP's thread, OP hoping you told the new owner of the GT550 about this site?
