    Octapus thingy

    Found out mine has the plates for the reed valves on the head have been blocked off. Its too quite for me. So want the octapus unit complete with all tubes and pipes if anyone has one lying around. So i can get some replacment covers and fit the item. Anyone done the mod and have one??

    Set your mixture screws a little richer..................often increases the pops on over-run !

    If you are putting the octopus back on then check the hollow dowels haven't been replaced with solid ones or you will be wasting your time.

    What do you mean by hollow dowels? looked on the cradly kawaski parts drawings cant see any dowels on the fitting.just the octapus piping and the caps or plates to connect it to.
