I am not a jetting expert by any stretch of the imagination, but If you are asking, you might want to include expected altitude and temp for your ride. Mine is completely uncorked with airbox mods, etc. and I normally run a 168 main... Although I ride mostly above 5000 feet.

I mainly ride at sea level and want to jet it for Baja. I took it on a ride Saturday with a 175 main. The ride was at 3000 ft and the bike ran well. I pulled the plug last night and the porcelen was white....I'm running the 68s pilot with the fuel screw 1 1/2 turns out and the majority of the ride was less than half throttle which is telling me that my pilot is lean. Is anyone running a larger pilot than the 68s? The bike has a real big flat spot if i blip the throttle in neutral, if i put the choke on and blip the throttle it goes away....I'd like to try a 70 pilot and maybe a 180 main....but still want some good input.
