I'd try 40s first, then maybe 45s
Your right, and worse than that I've got big long screw extensions so I can reach in there behind the AT tank and adjust them without taking the tank off. But I did stretch the springs a little. Do it every time. I live at almost sea level but do a lot of my riding in NM and CO mountains and hope to be able to adjust the idle when I get there. If it doesn't work I quess I'll have to change it.
