I used 195 main and 55 idle .I also used the spring that was with the slide , but now I'm thinking about the cut off tit on spring holder . Wondering if that made a difference. Thank Richard

Were they the stock Keihin jets? That extra clipping of the tit shouldn't be affecting anything, as long as the small spring is still on the tit to keep tension on the needle head.

I rode it this morning to work. 36 miles one way, 80mph for 3/4 of the trip. Still warming up. It was 32 degrees in the southern part of New Mexico. I stopped for gas before getting on the highway. One guy at the station said I was a real bad ass for riding today. Well at least the winds are finally in the single digits. It was so cool that my turn signal switch got stiff. Ok enough of that. It will be 70 degrees when I head home. Yeah

Took an 88 mile jaunt through through Scottsdale into Phoenix to meet someone then the long way around back through my stomping grounds in the Tonto Nat'l Forest, got some good sun and the weather was like i ordered it out of a catalog. That, plus timing it to totally avoid congestion traffic made it a sweet ride. It's my Birthday today so i gave myself a break and enjoyed it like a vacation. Yep, the big 62

Oh, and my left arm got a lot of exercise waiving at the other bikes.
