If possible, I'd like to go ahead and pick up some bigger jets today so I can have everything ready. Can someone tell me what the stock jets should be, and what would be a good size to bump up to? I see a lot of 130's and 140's mentioned... I have 3 needle shims though, and I don't know how that would affect my needs.
(FYI, I did several forum searches, and never found any numbers for stock jets)
Sorry I can’t answer your jet size question. It is posted, however – Yep, finding it can be a bear. Might be a good thing to post in the FAQ section just started.
If running lean is your issue, may I suggest adjust the fuel mixture screw (under the carb - nearest the engine) before you rejet. It might accomplish the same thing. Also be aware, the jets folks commonly put in work only or idle and for to top 1/3 of throttle control. From idle to 2/3 throttle is via the jet needle. There are several good sites discussing jetting.
