  1. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! I AM A RACING GOD, ALL BOW BEFORE MY 40 YEAR OLD BIKE, YOU THERE! YOU'RE NOT BOWING! WOOOOOOHOOOOO!!!

    Ok so that's out of the way:wink2:

    190 mains
    25 pilot
    needle in 2nd from top position
    air screw 1.25 turns out.
    XS pods (I know I know, I should be using them foamy things, but they're ugly)
    air jet removed

    Bike starts first kick with choke, choke off after I put on my helmet. Bike pulls strong up to 5k where I encounter slight stumble*, more throttle solves this very quickly. Power seems more readily available throughout the rev range with the application of more throttle. Sound through the pods is worth the extra $$$ alone.

    Conclusions,
    More fine tuning is needed. Must get vacuum gauges and tweak my cables. Further reading of the Mikuni manual and various other tomes of ancient lore is a must.

    *stumble happens with whatever carbs I have on and is not indicative of any failure on the part of Mikuni co. or its subsidiaries.

    I love mine and don't have a flat spot anywhere. I do adjust the idle a little as it gets hotter out but that is it.
     
  3. flat spot isnt due to carbs, but some kinda demon in my bike I have yet to excercise...
