Chubby Air Kit and PMS Screws

I could have swore I've read you should get Tim's pms screws or max airs with any pod kit, but S&S says they suggest you use the stock screws. Is this correct? Trying to find a definitive answer before all my parts arrive, thanks!

I kept the stockscrews and have no issues with them. The other ones just make it a bit easier to adjust the PMS setting if you need to. I'd rather save my bucks for other toys.

Out of curiosity. Can you adjust the stock screws without taking the carbs off?

I use this tool. That is after you have removed the brass caps covering them.
