I am not very mechanically inclined so I went to dealership...

Asked the service manager about them jetting my bike. He laughed and said hey Jim (the other guy in the shop) "this guy wants to jet a Rincon...ha.ha.ha..."
"We have never jetted a Rincon before and I am not sure where the carb is located, so I don't know how many hours it will take. Are you going to add the K&N filter?"

"Yeah" (me)

"Well then you won't need to jet the bike. The jet won't help any."
So I said screw it and left. If they are not confident about doing it, then I don't want them doing it.

Now I ask you guys...
What kind of shit is this from a service manager? Just because they have never done a Rincon, he recommnends not doing it. I think I will have to go to another dealer.

Get the Dynojet kit and do it yourself,it is not hard at all. The instructions are very easy to follow and have clear pictures too. A service manual will be helpful and can save you big bucks on labor charges at the dealer. I have been through 2 dealers and have not been impressed at all. Use this forum to reserch the task as there have been several people perform this procedure.

Yeah I keep thinking about doing it myself, but I don't want to seriously screw up anything.

I think that we need to get somebody who has already done it write up a very detailed instruction sheet for us mechanically declined people....I am sure that I am not the only one that wants to do it but is scared to mess up something.

Anyway, I am going to order a manual to see if I can figure it out.

Cameron, I am right there with you man! I want to jet mine with the K&N jet kit but I am very afriad of messing up this expensive thing LOL!! If it was a computer or a circuit board I would be more confidnet. Anyone that has jetted their rincon can you please post the details and photos if you have them?!? this would REALLY give me and others the confidence to SCREW the dealerships! LOL

Listen guys...DRincon is right.

You can not screw the machine up if you follow the directions provided with the Dyno jet kit....its the best $60 you can spend on the Rincon. Ive been trouble shooting these things and obsessing for performance for several years now and thers not much to it.

BUY THE DYNO JET KIT...dont think about it - BUY IT. And no, they dont pay me for saying that. Follow the simple half page instructions, and you will be fine. you will see a good gain from the kit and K&N.

If you need help, then ask here...or if its bad, and you really arent sure what to do, then ask and Ill give you my cell number and you can call anytime and Ill walk you through it....its not hard.

If your machine is stock, then instal the 144 DJ main jet, put the needle spacer clip on the second notch, put both spacers under the needle clip, put the provided dyno jet spacer ON TOP OF THE NEEDLE CLIP, slide the needle back into the slide, re-install plactic cap, put dj spring in and put the cover back on. Waaaallllllaaaahhhhhhh! mysterious power...

After instaling the main jet on the bottom of the carb, the only point I think the directions left out is that after removing the top cover of the carb where the slide is, if you look down inside the slide (after removing the carb cover and stock spring), you will see a white plastic piece in the bottom of the slide with a phillips head screw pattern in it. Put a screw driver down into the hole and push down while turning the piece counter clock wise 1/4 turn to release the piece. It will then slide out with the needle behind it...so be careful not to loose any pieces/washers that are in there. Then re-install the new needle with stock spacers under neath, the dj spacer on top, then the plastic piece and push down on the plastic piece with the same screw driver and lock it in with a 1/4 turn clockwise.

You will learn a lot from this simple install...

Hey Q,

I am definitly going to try it. I just would feel a little more confident with a service manual by my side. I will probably order one soon, along with the jet kit and the filter.

But then again, I may wait until I am ready to order the pipe too..
Either way I am gonna try the jet.
