Hi Fellow Star riders, Just a quick question, I`ve just fitted Delcovic silencers and a spike filter and up-jetted,   when balancing carbs is it best to do them with the air filter system in place or removed, I seem to think with the filter system in place, but not 110% sure so i thought i would ask your opinions on this matter.

Thanks in advance

Yes, everything in place when syncing.

make sure to warm the bike up before syncing the carbs. i take it for a quick 5 minute spin.

HI Bud

Delcovic is a UK Based company, That's where I live,  they make several styles of silencers all with removable  baffles and have a deep awesome bark to them, where ever I ride other bikers all say they love the sound of them, my biker buddy rides a Harley and I always have to ride in front just so he can hear my bike, I have to be careful  what I do coz we have different  regs in the UK  but when  I get my bike back on the road after winter and all projects  done I will make a video and post it
