My biggest tip is to read the Stickys about jetting for all the answers to your questions, or get a JD kit.

More backfire questions? Jeez...


Look in the jetting sticky in this forum, find something close to yours, then correct for the altitude:

If you are 5000 feet higher, multiply the jet size by .95 and use the nearest available size as a starting point. At that altitude, it might become necessary to use a needle with a step or two larger upper diameter.
