NX650 Snorkel removal - good idea?
I've read many times that if you remove the airbox snorkel on the XR650L (and rejet) it makes a useful bit of difference to the power.
Seeing as the Nx650 has pretty much the same engine i was thinking about doing the same.
Has anyone done this before. My bike carries a 148 main jet (standard for a uk dommie), but i'm worried it might take 'years' to get the jetting spot on. Considering you have to take half the bike apart to get the carb out - does anyone have any ideas!! Is the main jet the only thing to get replaced or should different needled be aquired. Like i said before, its a common talking point for the xr650l but i've never heard of anyone doing it on the dommie.
Thanks - Rob.
