V-Star 1100 Jets/carbs/intake
So there is a lot of info out there on the web but I'm missing some info about the actual parts I'm looking for. So, Ive removed the stock pipes, installed the Cobra Slash-Down Hot Rod Speedster Exhaust pipes. So this winter I also bought and intend to install a new air intake, Baron Big Air Kit...so naturally its time to re-jet the carbs...lets go! But wait there's a problem I need help with...So with the exhaust I need to re-jet, with the air intake installation I need to re jet...What jets do I actually install? So each modification calls for a different jet install, and they're quite different.
Baron kit recommended for the B.A.K. comes with:
- 4 main jets 107.5,110, 112.5, 115
- 2 pilot jets 22.5
- 2 needles and clips and cap screws
Cobra suggests this kit:
- 6 main jets 2 each: 165, 170, 175
- no pilot jets
- 2 washers & needles
- some e clips and drill bit and screw
Very different understandably. I know I don't want to buy the kits, so do I do this: replace Main jets individually, "165, 170, 175" as stated from Cobra (which size to try for front and which for rear?). Then replace pilot jets 22.5. And do the needles to to be replaced, adjusted or left alone? Need washers or?
Is this a good plan, or is there a better way to attack this. I'm pretty good with my mechanic skillz and tools, this modification doesn't intimidate me except for the lack of knowing which parts are needed to get this right. I have watched a few videos and read a lot of posts, called a few shops but haven't found what I am looking for. I have removed the Mikuni carbs from the bike, got 'em on my bench. Haven't started opening 'em up cuz was wanting parts to complete this first.
