So am I Crazy again??

So my shop didn't have 125 main jets.

But...I have a pair of 120 and one (1) 127.5.

So since 125 X2 is 250


120 plus 127.5 is 247.5.......

.....I'm going to try putting different main jets in the carbs.

They don't differ that much and with my understanding of physics there should not be that much of a flow difference between the two carbs.

Both carbs go to the same I'll give it a go.

I also discovered that the float bowls can be dropped by removing the exhaust system and working from the bottom.

You have to use a few "creative" screwdrivers and it helps to have allen bolts holding the float bowl on....but it's much easier than carb removal....particularly when you've spent 2 hours making certain they are attached correctly.

So....opinions or idea about running different size main jets.

I'll post results.
