Taffy, You crack me up! This is the first time my bike has had trouble in winter. When I studied jetting q's I paid attention to the ratio of the fuel to air jets. That is how I arrived at what I had. The other thing I noticed is that many (not all) of those who like larger jets also had the open pipes. Since you and I use the same pipe, I'm taking the plunge! To settle this once and for all, I'm going as close as I can get to your jetting with the components I have. I've already got it installed, just need time to ride. I have the following needles, EKQ, EMP and EMN. I currently have the EKQ installed, so I'll test it first. Then onto the EMN, I'll try c-4 first. The main is 150mj/160maj I don't have the 35Pj, but I do have the 38, so I put in the 38 with 65paj. It starts well.
