After putting the air filter on the bike is actually running better than ever since it’s been in my possession and probably about twice as fast uphill as it was without the filter. I’d imagine it was getting way too much air without it, not sure if I should still experiment with the jet or not. Just to be clear I’d have to buy a whole nother jet, bigger / smaller and put it in the carb and just experiment? Re-jetting is not something where you can just adjust the existing jet right??
