TcTrailrider - If your out there, since you ride in my climate, just wondering what you have been running now in your carb. How is your top end like fourth gear and fifth gear. Like I said above it felt like I had no fourth gear this weekend, it was always a quick shift, actually when shifting from even 3rd to fourth with eln use to feel like a huge pull, it just wasn't anywhere close to that this weekend.

I am running the Red 5 42PJ and 165MJ, with a baffle. Very happy with it. The baffle will have an effect mostly on higher throttle settings. You say you are stock jetting on Blue4. Stock is 42PJ and 165MJ. With an open pipe my guess is that a 170 or 172MJ would work the best. If you ran the stock D taper needle with the open pipe 170 or 172 would be good. The E taper needle has a smaller tip and requires a smaller MJ than the D. The JD needles begin and end like a D taper. The straight and tip are the same size. The difference is the taper is cupped, causing JD's needles to become richer than the D once on the taper and gradually leans back out towards the tip. This is no doubt an overly simplified opinion but I think reasonably accurate. The D taper as well as the JD needles need a MJ about 5-7 larger than the E taper.
If you go to a 170 or 172 this will also slightly richen your lower throttle settings. So go up on the MJ and see if the power picks up. If you go to rich it will miss at WOT. Also your sig. says 38PJ, if this is true you may want to go back to the 42. Have fun.
