Here are some pictures from my first run of the saw on some red oak rounds.
Took me less than 2 years to get 4!!!
Nice, now you know a dp muff cover will fit right on that saw, right??? Then remove the carb limiters, advance the timing ..... you will love it!!!
I agree with you. Trust me, I used to race motorcycles (road course racing), and going from a 600cc to a Liter bike at a 1000cc or more, now that is serious step up. Let me run this one for a while first, then I may think about monkeying with supping the saw up with bananas....
He can just enlarge the stock opening mike , same same.
Mahahahahahahahahaha, that's really funny, you said "need"
Stick around, that'll change
There was a dyno test on a 461xb (xtra bananas) built by Randy, can't remember the power figure but it was a bit special.
There are other highly skilled porters on this site, never ran any of their saws but have owned a few of Randy's, they range from "this thing is bloody awesome" to "holy ****"
Work on your chains before you send it to get ported , its the best saw mod there is , no increase in power makes up for a shitty chain.
It was a 1hp gain...brads 461s are phuckin killers..i have one , and alot of saws from other builders..
Oh, I wanted to ask about the air filter. See pictures. I took the saw apart and cleaned it all up, then I opened the air box and saw the filter all clogged up. Should it be this packed with stuff after only running it on Noodling for a few hours?
Its not unusual , the filtration kinda sucks on that style of saw...i run a max-flow.
Welcome to the wonderful world of Stihl air filtration
They block up but the only ones I've seen that let anything past them weren't fitted properly. Just knock them out every tank
Those pleated filters breath very well, so even partially plugged, they still work. I don't clean em every tank, but every few is a good idea.
The top usually gets the most chips.
I'm not Home,
But this 461R is.
That's fine. More problematic would be what gets past into the throat of the saw.
Which is where the hd2 shines
The 461 filter isn't patterned after the HD2?
I run a max flow in all the stihls I have. Mostly without the cover if there's no chance of rain.
So Far, So Good.
