It is the same kit I used when I did mine. It has everything you need ss needles, #40 pilot jets, #140 #142 #145 main jets, e-clips and shims for the needles. Instructions included.

The 'Professional Cycle" in Cochranton PA, used to be one of the sponsors in one of the largest off-road poker runs in the U.S.A., in the town of Cochranton.
I was there for the last 3 they had. From what I heard, they were bringing in TOO MUCH money ??? That's why the quit having them
It was a blast and there were tons of bikes one day of the weekend, and quads the next day.

Sorry for the hijack........
Now back to your regularly scheduled post....

dam...looks like a nice kit for the money, but I just bought the stuff individually just 2 days ago. definately worth it for the extra jets, etc. I think just the jets are around $6 each, individually.

Lance, what size(s) did you end up with on your bike?

If you noticed though he did set the starting bid at $19.99 so if one was to bid on it theres a chance of it shooting up into the $60 range easily enough if a bidding war was to happen sense he didn't put a buy it now price on it. For $20 that is a fantastic price, for $60 its a rip off and for the suggested retail of $90 ones getting raped. You can shop around on the net and get the jets for about 3-4 bucks apiece.

I am at 1000' above sea level: #40 pilot jet, #142 main jet, 2 shims per needle, idle/air at 2.75 turns with earshave and K&N's, V&H cruisers w/baffle and coasterd, she runs like a bat out of hell!! Most people use #140 main jet with stock exhaust. The closer you are to sea level the more fuel you can burn and the opposite for higher elevation. Tell me you setup and I can get you close to where you should be.

I have just placed a bid on the item.
$22
It's the only bid so far. Plus i called to make sure that it will fit on my 2005, since it says that it's for a 1986-2003.
Any input on this???

PEACE!!!

2005 Vulcan 750
