Well it ran fine all summer with the exhaust so all I really added was the filter and lighter weights because I figured that I could easily change the filter back out to the stock tomorrow or whenever easier than I could change the variator out. The cold really moist air really has seemed to affect it a lot so I'm not in a hurry to re jet it especially because it is hardly ever this cold for this long here.
Give it time - Ruck engines, at least with the stock jetting, don't like the cold IMHO. I lose a lot of power below 30*F, and it barely even runs below 10*F.
let the variator break in for about 100miles
and the motor does run bad when it is cold...these motors run on the lean side so when it is cold out it is even leaner, try uping a jet size
I appreciate this kind of info guys!!! I admit I got carried away with adding more than one performance mod but really I was thinking along the lines of DaBinChe. Jason at BSS had said that in his opinion they usually ran a hair rich. But he didn't know I had the after market exhaust or that it was as cold as it is here so I was debating if I was going to need to up one jet size or two. Also I'd been debating the 20mm slide carb so I wasn't sure I wanted to order a slew of jets just yet. On top of all that I also have to sheepishly admit that after busting my knucks working on the scoot in the cold the other night i just didn't feel like staying outside any longer to pull and check the plug.
Again I really appreciate the feedback.
