Makita 6401 7901

This board looked bare.   :)

This was a woods ported 6401 with  7901 top end that Big Dave had put some finger ports in.  I owned it for awhile as my first woods ported saw and then sold to a firewood cutter  out west. I regret selling this one.  :'(

Looked like a pretty nice little saw! A 6401BB is next on my list!

My next door neighbor has one of those .He loaned the thing out and his bud screwed up one of the bar studs .

I turned him on to Scott in Vermount for parts ,reasonable  quick . He had a little problem getting it back together but aside from that did pretty darned well for never working on a saw  before .

The thing does pretty good but being my usual wise azzed self I had to show him how a souped up Stihl runs .  Kinda unfair comparrison ,a stocker against a screamer .All in good fun . ;D

Just finished upgrade on one 6401 x 20"(used) to BBK & HD air filter kit.  I wanted to see how this one turned out before I do the new one .  All I did was cleaned up transfers, intake and exhaust .  Feels pretty stout have not had in wood yet.  Husky coil mod and another ex.outlet is next even though I opened stock outlet to size of deflector.

No, I haven't.  Thanks for the info.  I'm pretty new to performance and what will work in what.  I'm badly addicted though.  Thanks to people that are willing to share their knowledge am learning.  I've been a wrench turner/hot rodder since I was 13-14 yrs. old.
