I just installed my EKN needle with what seems like a similar setup to yours.
(See resent post "EKN needle results")

What are the settings that you think works best for your bike? Main Jet, Pilot Jet, Pilot Air, Needle position, number of turns out?

I will mess around with mine this weekend and let you know what results I come up with.

Have you tried the needle at #4? Was this too rich also?
