When I was attempting to go to the leaner jet settings, I came across a jet that I could not account for.

When I took the bowl off of the bottom of the carb, and removed the main jet (172), underneath that were 2 more. One was recessed down there pretty deep, and I figured that was the pilot jet(45). On the other side of the main jet was another jet, and this one was an 82. What was that, and do I need to do anything specific with it?

This is your starter jet. ASAIK it is used when you pull your choke (cold start). You change it if your bike is not working nice when on choke.
