What type of jets do I need?

I know I need 2x 140 mains and 1x 40 pilot, but when I went to Sudco's page there were Mikuni Lrg. Hex, Sm. Hex, Lrg. Round & Sm. Round. WTH am I suppose to get? Also, the Factory Pro shop that I'm assuming makes the carb kits that Sherm's sold, in 45 miles from my house. Does anyone know anything about these guys? It would be nice to pick up the shims and jets locally. http://www.factorypro.com/products/J...uni,%20buy.htm I posted the link, if someone can take a look and tell me which ones I need that would freekin ROCK!

That narrowed it down a little for me thanks. The local place has the sizes I need but I looked at this chart http://www.keihin-us.com/list.htm and from what I gather I need 2 of the 28mm pilot jet I think.... please correct me if I'm wrong. On the bottom I can't figure out which jet type I need for the mains. I'm going to take a guess (bottom shows CVCVK road bike) and say I need the 8mm for the mains.... I'm probably way off....

oops, thanks! 87 ft. above sea level, about to put K&N pods on carbs and stock exhaust. I ordered the 40 pilots, 140 mains and shims to re-jet but haven't opened anything yet. Also what is degoating and is it in the Verses? (so you don't need to waste your time telling me something that's already been explained)
