I built a pod kit using k & N filters and I have a slip on exhaust. I followed the chart on here but I am ashamed to say I lost one of the springs on the needles. I couldnt find one in Ottawa so I jury rigged it with springs out of ball point pens. I am thinking they are too strong in comparison to the old ones. Thats the only thing I could see that I might have done wrong. https://sites.google.com/site/vstar1...g/carb-jetting

lot of guys use the spring from a pen, see how it runs.
with pods and slipons or full exhaust anywhere fron 2.5 to 3.75 is in range. i run about 3-3/8ths with full exhaust i like a little popping.

I did 2 1/2 turns. Not sure why but now its bogging out completely. No power low or mid range. Starts rough and stalls half the time. I just finished bobbing the bike out. I should have left the carb alone and enjoyed it for a while before screwing around with it again. I am trying to find a chart I had detailing symptoms and adjustments with a Carb

with pods you should be closer to 3 turns. i get popping on decell below 3 1/4. your needle could have popped out of the holder. i think you can check it without pulling the carbs by removing the top cap.was the chart in the Wkb?

Ah shit I bet you it did I checked the seals on the bowls after I rejetted and I may have lifted it out. The chart said 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 so I started at 2.5. My confusion with the chart is it has two lists for PMS Mix max old pms pre 2008 and post. mine is 2007 if I go by year then its only 1 turn and that doesnt seem right.
