Earshave Jets and Elevation
Looking for a little feedback from y'all about jet selection for the earshave.
I'm not doing the pods, but am doing the dual input single K&N filter that others have done. Exhaust is going to be stock Dyna slip ons (baffled) and I'm leaving the belly for the time being.
I've read that a lot of folks are going with 142 mains, 42 pilots and 2 shims on the needles. Thats all fine, well and good, but there are other factors that effect performance like average temperature, elevation and humidity. I want to try and focus on the first two because I believe that they have a greater effect on performance.
I'm at around 2200ft and it averages over 100 degrees from early June through mid September (but its a dry heat....) I can always change them up for cooler weather.
I'm actually thinking about going with 140 mains and 40 pilots because of the heat (less dense at higher air temps so needs less fuel).
So, the $64k question for those who have shaved the ears: What is your elevation & average temperature?
