Pulled my carb apart yesterday and found 155/62 setup for jets (I believe it was 62, maybe 65). Bike seems to run and start well. I have ridden the wheels off of it in the 1.5 years I have had it.

Mods:
1. Snorkle removed
2. UNI
3. Header welds ground down some
4. WB Hot Tip (stock pipe) in place of stock baffle

Questions:
1. Is there anything to be gained by going richer/leaner on the main or pilot?

2. Should I leave a good thing alone?

3. What is stock jetting?

I usually ride between 500-2500 ft., but plan on riding towards 8,000 feet soon. Should I lean it out for this ride?

Well what does your plug look like? IMO it doesn't sound that off of what it should be, just maybe a bit lean on the main, but you need to look at your plug. And MAYBE a bit fat on the pilot, but I don't think so.

And I would lean that setup out for 8k feet, that's pretty high up.

But then theres that old saying dont fix what ain't broke! :)
