Thank you, folks. I'm just not confident in my mechanic doing the rejetting correctly and I've gone through dozens and dozens of threads about headaches caused by rejetting. From what I can gather, a good rejet is simple if you get the correct needles. It's when people use the wrong needles that headaches occur.
I would do this instead of my mechanic, but I don't have my own garage for it. My motorcycle sleeps in a very-safe underground park, which is great for keeping the bike rust-free but it also means I cannot wrench on my bike. I'm possibly one of the youngest guys on this forum, so I don't have my own house yet and it's going to be some years before I decide I want to own a house.
I ain't even going to get the PAIR system removed due to the aforementioned testing every 2 years that's mandated by law. In fact, I'm taking a huge risk by simply having aftermarket pipes as I can be stopped by police or highway troopers at any given time and have my pipes' decibels measured. You'd have to be a real attention-wh*re revving his bike all the time to get stopped, but I've heard of good-meaning people not creating a scene yet getting stopped and bike impounded for high decibel levels.
I'm going to go ahead and only install pipes with quiet baffles and see how that goes first. The quiet baffle will be installed prior to installing Big Shots on bike as I've read it's easier. I've also read that quiet baffles help with the leaner condition so that the bike isn't running as lean as with standard baffles or no baffles. Not sure as to the validity of this statement.
If I were to ask my mechanic to richen the mixture a little WITH Big Shots (and quiet baffles) installed, what would be the suggested turns? I think I've seen only 1/8 of a turn mentioned in some threads, but that looks too little though.
Also, when enrichening the mixture, do you simply turn the screw to the suggested turns OR do you have to first "reset" (somehow) the screw and only THEN perform the suggested turns? My mechanic will be doing it but I want to be as informed as possible (and learn more about my bike, you know?!).
