Yet another Jet / Carb / Air Question
I have a bit of confusion, since you guy were a huge help a few weeks back I figured you were the people to come to.
I re-Jetted my 1999 VStar 1100 Custom's carbs after a pipe change, (Monster Pro 2 to 1 Bad ass sounding mamma jamma's). I bought the Jet kit from Pacific Coast Star followed their recomendations on proper jet size, my short fall was the PMS screw, I did not purchase a aftermarket thumbscrew and it is hell to adjust.
I noticed how little air the VStar gets from the Factory set up, this will just not do. MY baby has to breath, So after research, I aquired two K&N RU-0600 Filters which I plan on installing this weekend (Friday), which will lead me to again Re-Jetting My carbs.
My question is two fold
1. In my lurking around here, i have seen alot about Pipe and Pod upgrages needing jets of size 150, however those were newer bikes than mine. The Pacific Coast Star paperwork i have suggest Both Front and Rear cyl with Pipe and Air modification get a 117.5. So I am confused as to how to set it up. So if someone knows and could set me straight there I would be gratefull. AND if i need something OTHER than a 117.5 do you think i could pick it up at my freindly neighborhood Harley Davidson Dealer.. or must I drive 40 miles to the Yamaha Dealer.
2. I need to "Rig" a thumbscrew for my PMS what successful options have you guys found to do that?
Thanks again for all the help guys.

Sometimes it takes a whole tankful of fuel before you can think straight.
