For those who have rejetted your bike, do you recommend a kit with a good variety of jets? Or am i better off just getting a specific size based on some the feedback from the jetting database here.

If you want a kit, get the James Dean. Also get either a James Dean fuel screw or the Merge one.

If you understand carbs, jetting and needles, then it is much cheaper to get a few jets and needles and resolve what ever issue you are having .

William is right about it being generally cheaper to go with the parts you need. It also helps to understand the way that each component affects the engine's performance, including how changing needles works. Review section 7 in the service manual. Reading this will help,too:
