You must keep in mind that I run my fuel/oil ratio at 100:1 which means I must go leaner on my fuel to air ratio than if using standard 2 stroke oil at 32:1.

If you're not mixing at 100:1 then I would suggest starting at about .028 for a jet size. That will usually require that you use the solder and drill method of determining the jet orifice size. The alternative is to buy a set of orifice drill bits and find what jet size you have by comparing it to the drill bit that fits the hole. Those published or advertised jet sizes mean nothing to me. They are nebulous at best.

I agree 100%

I didnt go into bits and drilling jets like I normally do for fear it might be to much for someone not familiar but I agree that is the best route and also the way I do mine.

Thanks for adding this, excellent advice.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
