Look into the jetting database and you should get some useful info.

The AIS kit that I installed on my 07 came with a 168 main, and a 48 pilot jet.

This seems to be perfect for where I ride at 2-3000ft. Even on trips up around 5k the bike runs flawlessly. My adjustable needle is in the 4th slot which is equal to the stock needle. Air box mod, pmb insert, blah blah blah.

Hope you get it right the first time cause working on that carb is a MotherMother.

From what I hear removing the AIS will eliminate the poping, but definitely do not throw it away. There are some rangers with a keen eye that know to look for it(in tight smog control areas like Kalifornia)... and there are a few WR owners looking to get them cause they threw theirs away....

I like the JD kit... Everything you need for all combos of elevation and temp. And its really simple.
