The '99 Airstriker apparently comes with a #5.5 slide while the '00 CR model I have came with a #7 slide.
The #7 slide is a little better, but you'll have to see how the '99 works for you first.
The '01 boot is for a Mikuni
, 85mm long, and the '99/'00 Keihin is 91mm long.
So the '00 boot is the better one for your situation, since it is set up for the proper length carb.
You can use your stock boot, but I imagine it is going to be quite a snug fit.
You can leave the TPS unplugged and nothing will come of it.
All the sensor does is send a signal to a computer and then that computer decides to advance or retard timing, or open/close power valve.
If the computer is not looking for that signal, it isn't going to miss it, and the TPS does not affect the operation of the carb.
The purpose of the JD Jetting
kit is to get his needles. The jets in the kit are the same as you pick up at the dealer.
And the kit doesn't come with every size jet you may need. I had to buy seperately.
I found his needles made my throttle response a little crisper than the stock needle.
Now, coming from the TMX, using the stock needle will be just dandy.
I'm not certain because I've never done it to an '02, but I believe the stock cable is a direct fit.
