Pilot jets

Can anyone confirm if these jets will work. Some one on here posted the part numbers for these jets. But the pilot jet is a bit shorter. Any help would be appreciated.

Unfortunately it does not look like they will. Where did you order your jets from?

Ok so I do need to order another set. In your experience would 42's be to big. 140's on the main. I have a set of those left from vn88. Pods/cruzers/cali emission delete.

I have 42 pilot/142 main on pods with stock exhaust. I think it might be a bit too rich, but until I do some cruising at high altitudes (Florida is almost completely at sea level) I see no need to change it. I reckon 42 pilots would likely work for you based on your setup, and Plano doesn't have a high elevation, either.

I settled for 40/138 for my bike as 42 was too rich but as other members have said "it varies from bike to bike".

Mine came with factory 132/38. I did get the correct 40's ordered. With all I'm doing to it right now I'm gonna start at 140's. Fingers crossed but I don't think I should have an issue.
