Is anyone happy running the stock jetting on their 05 ?

Who knows, maybe after a while, I'll want to coax some more hp out of it, but for now it's just awesome.
Installed the Utah skid plate and the Unabikers this weekend, both fit perfectly. Really like both products as they fit so clean and tight.

I had major problems with the standard jetting. Once it heated up the idle would race all over the place, it boiled on technical hills. I didn't realise it was too lean causing these problems. Since installed a JD jetting kit and transformed the bike, highly recommended.
Great point! Stock jetting is hard on the motor on hot days and slow technical riding. Proper jetting really fixes overheating issues.

A lean bike won't last as long and will run hotter.
I like my JD kit.

I followed Indy's base of:
75 to 90 degrees: 165 main, JD Red #5, 48 Pilot, 1.25 turns, 68 starter jet, #50 leak jet
And then tweaked it a little. I'm now running:
75 to 90 degrees: 168 main, JD Red #5, 48 Pilot, 1.75 turns, 72 starter jet, #40 leak jet
The idle bog snap is almost completely gone.. I say almost, because its there if you REALLY snap it from idle, but if you were to snap it like that when you actually ride, you'd flip over.
Idles great, runs great, couldn't be happier. Well, I'd be happier if I didn't owe anything on it, but other than that.

You mentioned stock jetting perfect for 8000'. Would that be the case at that altitude with the free mods done?
