yep!

on another note, scooter, did the JD jetting kit get rid of your lag entirely? its about 50% better on mine. I ended up breaking the 180 jet so i put in the 175, could that be it?

LOL, our bikes are sure jetted differently! Did you do the accelerator pump mod with th o-ring? That does a lot for throttle response.

Heh, I replaced the 06 head and valves with an 07 R head, stage 1 hotcam and stainless steel valves. With the smaller airbox and more restrictive exhaust, a 162 main is where it's happy.

Did you go up in pilot jet size too?

i did the big oring and didnt touch the pilot jet. it had a 172 stock and they called for a 180, broke that and put in the 175.

The JD kit should've came with a bigger pilot jet; stock on the x was a 40, the kit came with a 42. Pilot jet will help the bog - the 175 should be plenty - there are guys running 175 and have no problem.

i dont remember too clearly now that i think about it..... maybe i forgot it?

other than that, it rips... it barks hard and pulls all the way to the top. would you recommend the cam? what does it do to the power? move it around or boost it overall?

I would not recommend the cam for your bike - it still is milder than your R cam, but gives much better low and midrange than the stock X cam.

IMHO, you wouldn't benefit from a bigger cam until you had head and carb work done. You can talk to Ron at www.ronhamp.com and see what he says - he's pretty impressed by the power of the R. Make sure to keep a close eye on your valve clearances for the first few rides to make sure they're not moving. (getting smaller)
