Welcome to the forum.
Why are you concerned with the jets in the first place ??
Does the bike run at all ??
If the engine is all stock, the best jets probably are the ones it came with.

See, there's the man's problem, right there. Iv'e taken his request to mean that he bought the bike from some OTHER guy, who had previously dinked-with-it until "ran real good".

He does not know what the stock jets that came on the bike are, and is requesting a bit of a hand there for a baseline.



Sorry justa, can't help you with that'n.

it has a 40 and a 155 in the carbs now, vance and hines ex but the ex is all rusted out and needs to be replace it. i can get stock ex for 120 in good shape. so i could go with after market jets but i need to know what is stock so i can have revert back to that if i have to.. plus the ( prev owner ) messed the top of the jets up "trying" to remove them. so im afraid to clean them, reinstall them because im not sure i will get them back out. if it does not run right..... the bike does run really good at full throttle... but it will not idle on its own.... so i was thinking about the slow jet...

That's one possible meaning but there are others......like it just doesn't run right and "a friend" told him that it's probably the jets.
Thus my request for a little clarification.

I see we have more to the story now so it's moot.
