Bike ran great up at Kennedy Meadows with the new jetting and reeds. Had a bit of a concern trying to start it up in the morning . . . it probably was really cold from the night before (temps had to be in the 30s over night). It would die without the choke on or if I didn't keep the RPMs up, but after a minute or two, it was all good and ran great all day. Felt a bit down on power, had to drop a gear a bit sooner than usual, but I guess this is to be expected above 8K feet. I noticed that I did not have any spooge running down the pipe like usual. Kinda funny as I ended up going from a 35 to 38 pilot and 155 to 158 main and now I don't have spooge, I thought I would have had more, but I'm wondering if the missing link was the bigger pilot as now I'm able to adjust the air screw out over a full turn (running it at 1.25 out) whereas before it would fall on it's face if the AS was out more than a 1/2 turn when you blipped the throttle. A little concerning not seeing any spooge as I don't want to run it lean, but seeing how I increase the size of the jets, I'm thinking I may have just got it dialed in finally. Running about 40:1 premix which is more than the book recommends to be safe.
