just read your owners manual, it'll tell you
What's an owners manual?

It can be done in the bike. Pull out the hot start plunger on the top left side of the carb, this will allow just enough rotation of the carb to get to the needle. The stock needle has only one clip position. I recommend the JD jetting kit (see my 05 ride report post)

I posted about the lack of clip positions. You CAN rotate the carb, but it's easier to just take it out. Remove the top cover (two alan head screws) and the needle is right there. Pull the slide up and out, unscrew the dealy and there you have it.
I'm unsure of the dealy. Is this some technical jargon? Or is it that part next to the whatchamajig?
I'm going riding for four straight days and if Ol Blue doesn't run quite right I'll be buying the JD kit. But for now she rips
