Any #42 Pilot Jets Out there?

Got out for a 75 mile ride today with a bunch of guys, it was great. In the low to mid 70's, full sunshine. Boy is a CBR600 fast, has a 15K red line! And boy is an 07' HD FXSTC nice, 1600 FI 6 speed, 200mm rear tire!

However, I believe my #40 pilot lets are too small.

At fractional throttle, it has a slight stumble, it backfires on decel, and doesn't throttle up quickly if you rev it to downshift.

I think #42's should do it, next size is # 45 which I am sure will be too big.

So, if you have a pair of #42 pilots that you would like to sell, let me know.

Just checked my stash, no pilot jets. All I have are main jets (138, 140, 142.5). Sorry.

Mike -

Thanks for checking. Too bad you are so far north, bunch of us ride together but don't usually get up into your next of the woods.

I can understand that, I don't usually go that far either. Once my wife gets her license this spring, we may go on longer trips

Drew -

What have you done to your bike to warrant the larger jets?
Is that 145F and 150R main?
