My bike came from sea level so I jetted it to local shops recommendation, it now fires up first kick with a bit of gas but won't idle without the choke on or giving it some gas. I then turned the screw on the bottom out a few turns and it would idle for a little bit longer then die. So I figure I need to richen it up. My question is how many turns is it safe to go out on the adjustment screw because I went 7 before thinking it may be too far. Based on the change going from 3 to 7 turns, it seems I'd need like 10-12 turns. Given that I'm fairly confident that's too much, how much should I increase my jet size so I don't have that thing holdin on by a thread? And lastly where can I find a heatshield for this header??

Most riding is done at around 6000ft right now but would like to hit a few local trails that get to around 7000 if possible

Multiply the sea level jet sizes for the main and pilot by 0.94 and start with that.
