2015 Maintenace and Mods

Bike goes in the corner of the garage tomorrow and I am putting my winter maintenance and mods list together.
Clutch springs
Cyclops LED headlight
Dynatek plug wires
TJ's long A/F screws
New fuel filter
Avon Venon tires
Also plan on velocity stacks or pods. Anybody offering any pros or cons to one or the other? Sizes, part. Understand or vendors? Considering TJs stacks unless I can find something in red to match my speedo face to add some color.

One More MOd for 2015

Great looking bike! You may want to add this mod to your Christmas List. This helmet would make any biker King of the Road, but what a price!

With every passing year bringing us closer to the future of realising our dreams, here’s a list of top 10 gadgets that make the cut in 2015.

1. Skully AR1 Motorcycle Helmet

Equipped with a heads-up display, a 180-degree blind spot camera and GPS navigation, this DOT-certified helmet has a light-weight visor that is fog, scratch and glare resistant. With full bluetooth connectivity, this helmet also lets you voice-control your phone and music. The Skully AR1 is up for pre-order with a price tag of $1,500.

Do you think you can squeeze that into your Christmas Wish List?

Parts ordered from TJ yesterday. Velocity Stax to be powder coated red, long airflow screws, jet kit, and fuel filter. Scored a right side rear cylinder cover for cheap so I can remove the factory air box. Should have the other parts here by the time the Stax are completed.

Will do. Going to be about 6 weeks to get but should be right about the time things warm up enough to make some tuning runs.

I'm about to send TJ my carbs for a rebuild. Can you adjust those long screws without taking the airbox off? I'm sticking with stock intake system.

Velocity Stacks and Jetting for a VT750DC

Stacks arrived this week along with the jet kit from TJ which includes 42 and 45 slows and 142 and 145 mains. TJ said he never had success with Dynojet kits when I asked about what clip setting to start with on the needles. Anybody here tried stacks on a dual carb model and a Dynojet kit? Any suggestions or ideas on where to start?
