I run 450's in my HTG kitted XCR with out the porting, but I am running blind
not temp gauges. I like runnin a bit on the safer side of jetting, 440's would be to close to lean for me, I am not runnin the tempa-flow either.

If this is a new sled to you I would jet up or call flannery for recomendations and above all do some plug checkin thru the cold months or get an EGT
just to be safe..

Burn Downs SUCK!!

I run 430s in my Flannery motor. 900 ft. of elevation - northern Illinois
420s when I'm up north 1800 ft. EGTs are very helpful

I called Flannery today and he said the Tempaflow works great with the set up I have,he also said to run 450-460-450 and I should be very happy.

Old topic, new life....

Guys,

with your XCR's, you mounted the TFin the bottom box where the vent lines are, right? (by the horns) Anyone have a pic?

I'm running 440's across the board. I'm currently running stock 50's (pilot) and also have some 55's. Go to the .55's?... also .8 air jets.

I'll go with Dougs suggestion on mains, but what do you think on the pilots?

Also, I just had my pipes ceramic coated, so that may effect the jetting as well. I basically don't want to worry about this sled at 10 below! Are you running your TF in the standard position or 1/8 clockwise position, for 0 degrees.

Thanks.

Mike

Mike

I have pictires

1502.jpg 1503.jpg 1504.jpg and 1505.jpg

the TF is mounted in the bottom of the air box on the XCR

run 50 pilots and the .8 AJ's

I plan on running my TF at the DOT with 450 mains at the moment..

I have Ceramic Coated HTG Pipes and have been running them on my XCR for 5 seasons now, what I can tell you is they don't make a bit of difference in jetting.. The Coating may however just keep the pipe temp more consistent and may provide some help at LONG LONG Distance running. if anything coating helps retain pipe heat abit once hot to help the motor rev quicker.. but there is NO HP or Torq gains, or jetting to be worried about..

I also have been running ceramic coated pipes on my 1987 Indy 600 Piston Port
sled for almost 15 years now.. I still have the sled, the pipes still look good and the
sled is a fun ride for nostalgic purposes and it does suprise some newer bigger sleds from time to time.. but it has nothing to do with the ceramic coatings..

since you guys are on the subject about flannery ported engines...i have my motor ripped down and was throwing a new topend in it but i also wanted to get it ported before i put it back together...and since flannery seems to be the go to guy if u have an xcr800 i was just wondering what he charges for porting the cylinders and crankcase...and how do i get in contact with him?

RogerBzXCR, thanks for all your help/knowledge for this topic and all my other discussions.

Nice job on the TF! Question... did you simply connect the 2 vaccum lines on the box together? far left/far right vaccum nipples from the airbox? I see the line coming out of the box, going to the black T. I believe you have those lines running to each carb bowl, correct?

I get a little nervous with drilling in carbs and playing around with vaccum. I just rebuilt this thing.

polarissnox03 - I can provide you with Flannery's number if you like. I'll PM it to you.

Mike, actually I switched from the hose that connected the 2 nips to individual
caps.. not shown in the pix, its the other carbs vents that plug in to the T that goes in to the airbox on to the TF..

the only drilling is the top middle carb cap..
