I even went to a 175mj before I gave up (for now) and went back to EKR that has a slight lean spot at 1/4 throttle. Sure would like to kill that lean spot though..

thanks for the school lesson larry, do we get to go out to play now?
changing from EKR to ELN and ran leaner everywhere? you're meant to be running richer!!!

thanks Kirk I might just give you a list
check your pm
I think I will go with the EMM or the EMN
whats the dif agian from the EMK?

the difference between an EKN and a EMN is exactly one clip position and not a molecule more!
as larry would say there are two letters to a clip p[osition so there you have it-two letters.

The 3rd letter represents the straight diameter of the needle...and generally affects 0 - 1/4 throttle positions. The 2nd letter represents the distance down the needle until it's about 2.514mm (or something close to that)...and generally affects 1/8 - 3/4 throttle positions.
Each 2nd letter means that distance is about 0.05 mm further down or higher up on the needle...and 1 clip position on the needle is 0.1 mm. That's why we're saying that moving the clip 1 position raises or lowers the needle by 2 letters.
Read this article. It was very helpful to me to understand the jetting of the bike.
Keihin Carb Tuning Manual
...and/or send a message to James Dean and ask for his jetting spreadsheet. It'll show you graphically how changes in jetting, altitude, or temp affect your bike. $20 well spent.
