Hi guys, Im in the middle of a 686 build. Ive got several questions and any input would be greatly appreciated ! Im running a 102mm wiseco 11:1 piston, a wiseco crank. and yes its free of their recall. keepin my fingers crossed. Ive got kibble white springs and kibble white black diamond valves stock size. Its an 04 raptor. Does anyone know if the valve guide/guides have to be cut down for the valve seal to clear? ive heard a lot of talk of people not needing it. it says that the middle intake may need it with instructions but it isnt year specific. The cam is a hotcam stage 2. Ive also bought a wiseco timing chain as well. Also the one way bearing.. earlier raptors had a different one than the 04 and 05s. was wondering if my 04 would work with the build. the l&a replacement isnt cheap! The stroke is stock by the way. 3rd is jetting.. Ive been reading and some guys list what jets they run but dont specify what kind.. Ive already got a dynojet kit.. plan on running their needles and i have some larger jets that came with the kit for mains.. and ive heard that i will need 27.5 pilots and 3 out on the mixtures.. are the pilots mikuni ? I need to know brand and numbers to see if i have what i need to atleast get it to run when assembled.. want to be as close as possible. I have the airbox eliminater air filter set up with the 2 banchee looking filters with outter wears. also a Full hmf exhaust.. Im in south Mississippi so just above sea level. less than 500 ft. Is the stock plug good for these builds? Also my intake boots are worn and the carbs wont stay in.. Ive only heard of upp boots to upgrade, however they arent on e bay nor does the local shops around here sell them. Where are they avalible at? i found moose intake boots on ebay for about 80 bucks. Anyone run those? I know fcr carbs are much better but running short on cash.. And clutch and spring suggestions.. Ive heard some contaminate the oil.. I know its a lot of questions.. Thanks for taking the time to read. I would appreciate any help you experienced 686ers can give me. Thx in advance..
