lots of places sell jets for our bikes... but your best bet is to contact Lance, he is the jet guy for our bikes.. he knows exactly what jets you need for what elevation and mods you have done to your engine and exhaust.

I just got my new jets for my bike through PJMotorsports.com out of Oregon State. Small Mom and Pop company ...very good prices....excellent customer service....great informative website. These people really know there Keihin and Mikuni Carbs......Carb parts is there main business. Check them out....I very highly recommend them. If Lance(our carb guru on here) has the jets and needle shims....I would support him and buy them through him. He is a great and very helpful guy....and has been very helpful to me on this exact subject.

jetsrus.com. You can get OEM equivalent at less than half the OEM cost.

Main Jets are 99101-393-XXX (135-152 ?)....then the last three digits would be your desired jet size. Pilot Jets are N424-22-XX (40-45 ?).....then the last two digits would be your desired jet size. These are genuine Keihin Brand Jets. I think they are like 7.00 dollars a piece plus shipping? That is through PJ Motorsports (503) 873-8992 Remember they are on the West Coast so they are on Pacific Time!

Also.....don't forget to get needle shim washers (009-396) pack of 12 washers from PJ Motorsports. Changing the jets without adding 2 shims to the jet needles is defeating the purpose of changing the jets. Without shims you still won't get the fuel flow that you are looking to get from replacing the jets......The Late ....but Great "Ron...Lance328...Mullinix" taught us all that tip!!!!!!!
