The "how to" photos and explanation used to be on the "Capt. Jake" site, but wasn't last time I looked several months ago.
Yeah, I remember you saying a while back that you shimmed your needles. I've been hoping that would pop back up on Capt's site. No luck yet. I've heard mixed reviews about the needle shim. Some people said it didn't cure anything and hurt mileage. Other's like you said it might contribute to a better running bike. I'll have to take a look at that. It seems like a rejet might be my best bet. Wonder what that would do to the MPG.
