That is the final configuration, unless Taffy tells me to try anything else.

you may find that the neelde lowered one would make it a little crisper at roll-on in 4/5th gears.
ride it like that for a while. you'll be amazed, but one day in one gear at one speed you'll catch the bike out. just report it back and we can adjust to suit.

If you dropped your needle twice I thought you would be lower that clip 6. Lower number = Leaner correct? I'm in jetting overload

clip # 6 is at bottom of needle - needle is pulled as high as possible = rich.

if you've got that needle in clip 2 (second from the top) you're running spot on/lean.
if you have got thath 35PJ and can turn the PAJ down to 45 i would definately try it.

what else can i say other than it will be better!
you may even get that huge rise in tickover (idle) that i had. this as you know means the bike is at last getting exactly what it wants.
you may find that the bike operates off a smaller throttle?
now you've said that the needle is lean on it's clip position i would check if lifting the needle one clip isn't better. all you need to do is roll-on back-to-back tests by riding flat out in fourth on tall gearing at say 15/48, roll the throttle off for a count of "one" and go again. do it on the road and not the dirt if you can.
then try the 35PJ/45PAJ combo.
keep the faith. these are tests and you've walked through a lot of work to get to here.
like i've said before, having offered up these jetting #s people are just sticking stuff straight in and offering little testing or feed back.
someone literally last week said "it works, so i'm off". he may have said Ta! but i don't remember.
hardly did his bit for the cause though did he.
if it helps do the testing as a straight chore and don't have any rad flaps, one bolt in the seat and tank etc.
