Get rid of the AIS and up your pilot to 48 and buy a JD jetting kit and an adjustable fuel screw and remove the plug and screw that is stock. :applause:

You can buy the JD jetting kit from the TT store on this web site. If you want to save money buy an 04 WR needle (adjustable with 7 positions) and a 170/168/162 main jets for further tuning. 48 pilot jet, 40 leak jet and a 72 starter jet are also good to have.

Look at the pinned post at the top on this WR forum for everyones jetting recommendations and what works for them. :applause:
