Main Jets for a Euro model after ear shave and reed valve cap
I've read with interest the numerous posts relating to the ear shaving and capping the reed valves. I'm currently messing around with a winter project, a 1994 Euro spec VN750.
I have done the ear shave, capped the reed valves etc etc I managed to get an unused Freedom jet kit (mains, primary's and needles). It wasn't until I was deep into reading another post about the ear shave that I noticed the difference between the US spec main jet (135 std) and the European (110). So here is my dilemma, I have 140's, 142's and 145's in the kit, but to jump from 110 to 140 seems a big leap. The primary jet in the kit seems to be one up from standard. Do I assume the kit is correct and universal and fit the 140's to start or do I purchase some jets closer to the std 110 size. Exhaust will be either Jardine fishtails or V&H Cruzers (as they are the only ones avaliable here in the UK at present). Has anyone ear shaved, and rejetted a Euro model? If this post needs to be moved, please accept my apologies. Thanks.
