    do you know what size jets came stock? a friend of mine has an 82'
    that seems to be loading up and back firing. the previous owner put
    straight drag pipes on it and i thought maybe back pressure may be
    helping add to the problem. any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Jim,
    What have you and your friend checked out on the scoot? And I might be thinking backwards here,but would'nt it be a lack of back pressure with the pipes? Someone here will correct me if so!
