I've been trying to dial in my methanol jets for about 3 weeks now, and I've hit the wall. I've read previous posts (which I found on search - Pahrump) where it was suggested that you run 180% over gas jets, and tried many different combos on my own. Pilots I've tried range from 55/65/70/75/70/85/90/100, with main jetting from 280/290/300/320/330/345/350, with screw mixture setting a 1 turn/2/and 2.5 turns for each jetting change. I have ripped down my street at least 60-70 times testing each change (thank god I have great neighbors), and am OK with the jetting as it currently stands (100/345), but I'm still having issues which I've run out of ideas for.

Problem #1 - still a huge amount of poping after WOT and getting off the alky. Thought it was a lean situation where the poping was caused by not getting enough alky, but with a 100 pilot I find that hard to believe.

Problem #2 - The bike revs quickly, but the revs float down slowly instead of coming down quickly. No clue.

Both of these issues may simply be a side effect of running alky and not something I can fix, I don't know as I've never run alky before. I'm out of ideas and frustration is high.

As a side note, when I put the bike back together, the neutral light no longer come on when in neutral, so now I cannot start the bike unless the clutch is in. I'm sure it has something to do with the TORS, but I didn't do anything with the wiring to cause the change, so it's yet one more kick in the balls in a very frustrating week.

Does anyone know of an established shop/person I could contact who knows their sh*t when it comes to methanol? I think I've gone as far as I'm going to go without a little more direction.

Any thought or suggestions at this point would be welcome.

Thanks in advance.....

Use the search.........................Hahahaha Just kidding.

Actually I'm glad you posted this because I've never seen it addressed on here. I was considering going alky but normal jetting was a pain in the butt enough!! Sounds like alky is a bigger pain. Sorry I don't have an answer for ya but you helped me out if that’s any conciliation. :lol

Good luck with your jetting.

I don't know much about running Methanol but I had a similar problem when I first got mine. The revs would come down very slowly and the problem was the idle. I adjusted the idle down and everything is fine now. I did have to mess with the fuel screw to get it to idle high enough with the idle turned down.

Here Nils I posted this at the other site beofre I saw this here.


Nils you say the needle jet is drilled out to a 1/8 and you are running a 345 main well you problem may be right there.

A 1/8 bit is only a 318 jet a 9/64 is a 357 jet.

So like I said before I think that you are lean in the mid cause that is what mine was doing.

Check it out and let me know, call me if you want I think you got my number.
