STEP 2 Remove the carburetor according to the section in your factory service manual that outlines procedures for carburetor removal, disassembly, reassembly and installation. Now is a good time to proceed with re-jetting the carburetor. Consult your factory service manual for details of this procedure. We have supplied jets to cover many common configurations. Individual bikes may need additional tuning to achieve maximum performance. If your exact combination is not listed, choose the listing that most closely resembles the configuration of the motorcycle. These recommendations are based on testing done at 700 feet above sea level.
