jetting the carb

When I bought my bike from an old friend It had Cobra pipes and a Kuryankyn 9409 Pro Series Hypercharger on it. I pulled the Cobras and the Kuryankyn Hypercharger. I found a used K&N filter from Fallen Bikes for $35.00 so got that and installed in on the bike. Now to my question, How should I Jet it? I'm sure it was re-jetted when the Hypercharger and Cobras were put on it. Now the K&N air filter is pretty much the same as the Barrons big air kit. I'm not sure how to jet with stock pipes and the K&N air kit. If anyone has an idea of what I need to do, I'd like to hear from you. Also, where do I get new jets? Just finished adjusting the valves and the only thing left to do is get this carb re-jetted. Thanks in advance.

Cheers,

Al Jones

Can't remember exactly which bike you have. General rule, stock exhaust and free flowing intake go up one jet size from stock and out a little on PMS. That's where I would start. Ride, read plugs and adjust from there. Keep us informed.

2001 Vstar 1100 Classic (sold), Cobra Slash Cut full exhaust, Dropped 1 inch with lowering links, ORK, 4.5 inch handlebar risers, Ultimate passenger seat, Passenger pegs moved forward 4 inches, Handlebar clock, KN air filter, Viking saddlebags, Additional rear lighting
Loose nut "me" behind the bars
2006 Harley Electra Glide Ultra Classic

Thanks, I have the 2000 XV1600A. I'll see what I can find out what came stock and go from there. I have no idea what jet is in the card at this point.
