did i fook up?
instead of checking my jets first before i did my earshave i changed the jets to what most here recommend. put the v&h cruisers on and it seemed to run great. at times i thought fuel consumption was poor but brushed it off. i only put a couple of thousand miles since i got it in may.
on the september ride i noticed really black pipes and Joe, who had been behind me said it was burning rich enough for him not to ride close to me. i had put 142 mains, 42 slow jets and 2 shims under the needle. going through my spare parts i have 135 mains and 35 slow jets in it. did i go to fat to soon? should i back them down to 138's?
as soon as the weather breaks she is going up on the lift table to do the stator and stator mod. fluid changes ect. ect. if i need to change them that would be the time. the pipes are sooty from the other days ride, but i havent pulled the plugs to look at them...yea i know bad owner
on edit...im in the 320 to 400ft above sea level most places i ride
