Carb Jet Problems.....
I have MAC staggered pipes and shaved off the ears.
So I have been trying to get the jetting right for a few weeks.
Currently have 42/140F and 42/142R, needle on the second position from the top. Had 40/140F and 40/142R and the bump to the 42's help steadystate cruising.
It idles well and cruises well. If I blip the throttle while donwshifting for example, it does not rev, just no response. If I give it a better twist it revs, but not smoothly.
If I wind it open past about 5K rpm, it starts to stumble, sort of like its running out of gas. No its not the carb vent line, thats tied wrapped to the frame under the tank facing rearwards.
I don't know whether to go to larger main jets, go down another step or two on the needles, or both.
Any experiece would be greatly appreciated.
