I want to purchase a Jet kit for my bike first...if this doesn't give me large gains in performace I will also be getting a pipe. I am not sure where to purchase these items.

I tried to get the K&N jet kit but was told that they dont make the jet kit anymore?! How much money is the JetKit and where is a good place to buy one?

I would also like everyones input on the ammount of gain you see with the jet kit and then with the pipe. Will the jet kit alone be enough to get the bike to raise the front up when its hammered?? I like the quietness of the stock and the fact that its Stainless Steel

Everyone please elaborate on this topic for me...I will be buying the jet kit within a week or two.

Hi Jason

I just installed the Dyno Jet kit (jet #144, and 2 3/4 turns on AF screw) My buddy and I own the same Rincon (03). We weigh about the same. His is Stock.
We had a race and yes out of the hole I had a bit of a lead, really noticed him disappear when 2nd hit. I maxed out at 99KM but it felt like I was going faster but ran out of road. His max was 92KMh and no more. The jet kit, IMHO is best suited for bigger tires and low end grunt. We both wheelie our quads. The jet kit is only a part of the puzzle. We discovered that there is a technique required to wheelie. It does not involve "lots o power" If you stand up, then start this process, it'll bring it up just fine. As you sit down, at the moment the rear drops, pull a bit on the bars as you hit the throttle. No need to floor it, but 2/3's is ok. Then using the left hand break and the throttle, find the balance point. About 80 degrees. Breaks bring you down, gas puts you back up.
Otherwise we use about the same amount of fuel, I am putting on Mud Lites (26") and then we will truly see. I think he will be a lot slower, and I may not notice it much at all. I'll keep you posted if you like.

Cheers

Yeah! Thanks for the input!! I am wanting to get the 26" lites as well. Where did you purchase your jetkit from? Is it something worth the money for the performance gain?

Paid 75 canadian for it.

PS all that front end weight will make some difference. You'll probably need to sit a bit harder to get her up!

I have heard of some Rincons that can't do a wheelie stock, can after the jet kit. Use the Dynojet kit for sure.

When you need to install it you can find my instructions here.

Yellow thanks for the detailed instructions...I might just be able to attempt to do this modification with those instructions, well, I would at least feel more comforatable LOL.

Greg, that price looks to be the best from what i have found so far...

is the jet kit alone enough to get the tires up without doing a pipe mod at this time? What main jet would I be using with a stock pipe 144?

Ok, I found where I think I am going to purchase some good stuff!

at Highlifter.com I found a kit that has the MBRP (tech4?) muffler, Dynojet kit, K&N air filter, outerwares prefilter, K&N recharger care kit. This all comes as one package with a price tag of 419 dollars. I think this looks pretty good considering the pipe is 300. so all the jet kit and air filter ect is only 119 dollars. Please give me your feedback and I will run this by the wife and see if I can sway her to let me get all this stuff that I have no clue how to install LOL!!

-----edit---
I forgot that it also has the NGK high speed spark plug included

Hey guys just wanted to throw my two cents in....I have done a lot of research and it seems the cheapest place I found to by things like tires, wheels, winches, K&N power kit(which includes K&N filter, Dyno Jet Kit and K&N Prefilter), etc. is www.atvoutfitters.net. Don't go by their prices on the website, call Matt or Todd and the price will be pretty low and it always includes the shipping too. I ordered 4 ITP C-Series Aluminum Wheels with 4 ITP 26" mudlite tires for like $535 including shipping. The K&N powerkit was around $110.

The best place I found the MBRP Powertech4 exhaust was www.shadetreepowersports.com. You have to call them as well because you can't order online without part number. The pipe is $262 plus 9.99 shipping. Hope this helps. I just ordered my pipe a few days ago and will have it tomorrow.

Yes! Thank you Stephen! Are you saying that the entire powerkit (filter, jet, prefilter) are $110? Also that price you say for the pipe is great, however I dont find that pipe anywhere on their site. I know you said I have to call for the price are you saying its not on the site at all?

Jason, Yes the entire powerkit was like $110 or really close. I didn't see the pipe on the shadetreepowersports website either, I had just read about the price from another forum so I called and sure enough for $262 you can get the MBRP Powertech4 for the Rincon. Just call that 800 number listed and ask them about it, they lady I spoke with was pretty nice.

Jason,
I got my Dynojet kit and K&N from Highlifter for 118.00 as a kit. I don't know how that stacks up with the other kits, but I got it fast.

Thanks for the info guys! I have one other quick question. Would it be best to do the jet kit and tune it try it out and see how it works? If this isnt enough then get the pipe. Or would it be best to just get it all at once and tune it one time?

By the way, My wife isn't going for this "upgrade" idea. I think it will be eaiser to ask for forgiveness than for permission...I give up on asking for permission. She is going to just have to forgive me LOL!!!

Jason,
I do not have a pipe and most likely will not get one. The improvement with the K&N and the Dynojet was significant on the low and mid range. That is exactly what I wanted. I had 2 occasions recently to pull a buried AC 500 out of the mud and all wheels were digging. Power increase is very noticable. Try the jet and filter....it may save you the cost of a pipe.

Jason, what a coincidence, it was forgiveness that I asked for as well. As far as jetting it now or when you get a pipe. I have read different opinions on this, but I decided to wait until I got my pipe because I knew I was getting it soon.

I talked to a few different bike mechanics here and they all said just wait until you get your pipe...I think it's just a personal preference of whether or not you want to mess with the jetting twice or all at once and whether or not you know for sure you are getting the pipe.

From everything I have seen the pipe definitely adds more power then just the jet alone because of the airflow. Of course, I am know expert, those are just my thoughts.

I took a ride this past weekend with 24 quads present. There were 5 Rincons and many other makes represented. Several guys including a Rincon owner regreted getting pipes some had been removed and some owners were planning on removing theirs. The major reason was they and their riding buddies disliked the amount of noise the aftermarket pipes make.

Something to think about unless you just have to have the extra power nad you and your riding partners don' mind the racket.

From what I hear I think I will just go with the jet kit and filter (thinking about a Uni filter instead of K&N for added pertection). If this doesn't cure my rincons top end problem and doesn't allow the bike to pop the front end up with ease then I will get a pipe...For the money its easier to ask for forgivness of 100 dollars rather than 400
