looking for starting point for jetting a keihin 450r carb on my predator. Thought I would check if anyone rides glamis and has that carb would tell me what they are using that would be very helpful.

No takers... I am just going to try to start with a 155 - 160 and see how it goes unless anyone wants to put in their 2 cents [smile]

I run Keihin FCR's on my Predators and have gone as high as a 175, on a stock 500 w/ P.P. pipe.I run open UNI filters w/ 2 1/2"X6" tubes, this is the setup i run on all 3 of my Preddys. I highly recommend buying the HRC jetting kit, great taper for sand.My B.B.558 likes a little more 180-185 depending on time of year, also my B.B. is ridden only in sand, it stumbles sometimes at lower speeds, but im not going slow very often, anyways! I like to keep my idle a little high also, it will help when taking off with a richer mix. One more thing, get a flex jet, getting to that adj. screw is a bitch, and HOT!  I found myself not wanting to mess with it much because it was such a bitch , with the Flex, I was alot more willing to fine tune because it was so easy.

Thanks for the info. very much appreciated. Out of curiosity how did you set up the throttle cable on your bikes. The Honda throttle cable seemed to be a little bit short no matter which way I ran it.

Flex Screw advice taken, already discovered the burnt flesh smell that comes from the bike when trying to make adjustments[evilgrin0007]

I make my own cables these days, I have tried in the past to generate some interest in having the proper cables made for this swap specifically. I have made several cables for this set-up, and believe i have come up with the best design for it. I run twist throttles on all my toys so they may not be exactly right for a thumber. Here are some pics of my set-ups. I modify the upper motor mount and top of carb for clearance. I also re-route the vacuum port on top cap,as well as several other mods for adapting. 10-01-14_1748.jpg  10-01-14_1743.jpg  10-14-14_1703.jpg  P3250081.JPG  P3260084.JPG
