jettinJim,

Thanks for the reply, I have seen some people had them on the bikes but never heard from anyone about whether or not they felt it was a worthwhile modification. What vendor did you pick yours up from?

I too have the thumb screw pilot screw, it is very nice to get the bike tuned in correctly. But, to be honest, I rarely touch mine afterwards.....but the ease of being able to turn that stupid little pilot screw without it, makes it worth it's weight in gold, well almost! It is an expensive little bugger....nut.....
I got mine from John's cycle.....google it and I'm sure you will find it.

I'm feeling generous today....lol

It fits and works excellently!

I had a can of Plastic Dip Spray and this is what happend. It is still beat up but at least it is one color and all grippy. I'll let you know if it comes off too easy.

JettinJim and Willeys,

Thanks for posting up replies, will have to get one on order, living at 47' above sea level I want the bike to run well here, and be able to get over the Sierra passes without undue strain.

Nooo problem man.... it's only gonna help you at idle till just off... you may wanna open up the airbox side door if she starts running rich and doggy up high. But that said you should be good with your jetting up to 6-7,000ft easy if your lean and mean now at sea level, then opening the box will lean you out just fine..... albeit noisy!

JettinJim,

I have been thinking about putting a removable plug on the side of the airbox to do just that. Leave it in down here, and pop it off and put in a saddlebag when up at higher elevation.

.. looking at yours again .. are your "idiot lights" (neut/turn/hi-beam/oil) also the #194s? .. I just noticed your Neutral lamp looks blue also .. or is that your high-beam?? ..

.. I also really like the cluster on the newer models .. easier to read for my old eyes ..

I'm gonna give 'em a call tomorrow. I just asked Eagle Mike to give me a price on a 688 kit, boring, shipping, etc. See how Carl's price compares.

I made the N blue as well. Looks great to me. Green/normal when off and brilliant blue when in N. I should of put a blue in the hi-beam as it looks better and I seldomly ride at night.
