Default 00' Kodiak

Hey there HMF guys,
I currently own a 2000 Kodiak, old but she is a beaut. The stock exhaust rusted a hole through it and sounds like poo. I am interested in purchasing a HMF Utility Series slip-on. I am just not sure how the aluminum canister will hold up to the tough Wisconsin winters....the extreme cold and the constant heating up and cooling down of the canister won't that effect the aluminum.

Wolfey, Our mufflers can take some serious abuse so long as you give your engine additional fuel by re-jetting your carburetor. I know it gets VERY cold up there which can lean out air/fuel ratios causing excessive exhaust gas temps. By re-jetting you are keeping these EGTs in check and maximizing the power potential of your engine.

Default Re-Jetting

Thank you! So when it comes to jetting, what would you recommand for my climate? Does it make a difference what size jet you use for cold weather and warm weather?

Start with a 140 main. Use this chart to fine tune for your conditions. http://hmfracing.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1957
