    Hi. Yeah, I like your bike. Mine is a 2003 Virago 250. I’m thinking about doing some of the stuff that you’re doing. Have a question regarding the K&N air filter. Did you have to rejet? What about with the straight pipes? Did it make any difference in performance or fuel efficiency? Hope to hear from you. – Joe

        Cool. Thanks for the info. I thought for sure you would have to change jets. I guess that’ll be on my list…sometime.

        just change the stuff, and if there are any popping sounds when you are riding, you may need a rejet.. its pretty easy to tell, if it runs crappy or splutters, then rejet.. viragotechforum has jet sizes i think.. helpful forum
