yes, I have used a Dynojet kit for a 900 and increased the jet size by 10% as a starting point

I normally start the hunt for a new project in the summer, ready for the following winter to be sure I have something to work on...  this year its all been a bit quick!  I have not quite finished the Multistrada when along came another Duke... an ST4s this time.  it runs well, bit is a little tatty ( the pictures make it look better than it is...) It was a bargain price, so I could not resist it!

For the moment I am going to sell off some of the bits I definitely know I wont use, and then put it to the back of the garage until the winter, when I will start the build in earnest...  thats not to say I cant do little jobs :-)

not sure what this will be just yet...  time to think about it!

I guess I will have to start another build thread...

Been out and had a good run of around 50 miles today, took a few pictures...  The bike runs REALLY well, nice and smooth pick up, and revs to the red line cleanly, I am pleased with the result.  I would say its down on power over the injected bike, but not much, and its enough for me!

A couple of things I need to change...  the mirrors are crap in that position, and also the throttle is too slow, I need a faster action, and will be on the lookout for one next week.

If by throttle action mean response, CV`s are slower than flatslides or injection.

I didnt describe the problem well...  it's more the fact that you need two good handfulls of throttle to accelerate.  I need a bigger diameter on the twist grip.  I have ordered a quick action throttle which should help...

Last time I used CV carbs on my M900 I used a Mikuni Quick Turn Racing throttle for the same reason.  The wrist angle of larger throttle inputs was annoying. Sounds like you got the jetting and ignition mapping very close on first test.
