Question Needle jet holder socket size?

So, I am pulling the main jets out to soak/clean them and see if that will cure my 4200 rpm "wall" the bike has where it will start to stumble. I removed one side main jet and needle jet holder as one piece but on the other side the main came out and the holder is still in place. Any clue as to the size socket I should use?

Disregard. I figured it out. For everyone's future reference, the answer is 8MM. Both sides have been soaked, brushed with a toothbrush, and blow dried out. But they looked pretty scale-free before soaking so I'm not sure if this will clear my problem up. We'll see.

I've got my fingers crossed for you. Don't know where else to point you. :/

Success! It revs like nobody's business now. At least clear into 5000. I couldn't take it any further due to the road. If the rain has chilled out tomorrow I'll get it on a long hi-speed stretch of road and verify that it's cured, but I think it is. Now I'll close out the other thread I started on this. Happiness. Joy. Bliss.

Alright!
I was totally depressed when you'd decided to sell it. Glad it worked out!

In the other thread when you said "I think this is about the end of efforts that I can (and am willing) to do personally. Any further tearing into it can be done at a dealer somewhere. Darn........ "
I totally read it as "I'm through with this bike and I'm going to trade it in for one that works" *laugh* MY BAD!
