See my sig for jetting @ 2000 ft. In addition to altitude, your jetting will also be dependent on temperature and humidity. Note that my airbox is a little more "open" than most.

I'd recommend buying the JD kit and a Zip-Ty fuel screw. Makes the whole jetting experience pretty simple.

As far as the gray wire goes, type "gray wire" (or maybe "grey wire") into the search function. Should be tons on posts about it.

Good luck!

I have had great luck with the combo in my signiture. No popping or surging. I do not have the bog problem either, but I grew up on 4 strokes and don't try to compare them to a 2 stroke when they are sitting in the garage.

do a search on the grey wire. there is a ton of info. as far as jetting, check any post by indy_450. he knows his stuff about jetting and is at 700 feet. his posts always have his current specs. :) it's like cheating.
