Alright so here's the deal. I got my maxi last summer as a non runner and wasn't going to upgrade anything until i got it running well stock. got it running and it was Ok but never felt like it was running how it should. I figured it was good enough so i ordered a Boss pipe, new air filter, some jets... first time upgrading newb stuff.
Come to find out the dude bought it from put a 15mm carb on it, but didn't put a larger intake on it so it's still at 12. I know i have to replace that before I can dial anything in and get it running really well, but when I ordered my stuff I just checked the jet (82) and got the next 3 sizes larger not realizing my intake was smaller, thinking that would be sufficient for the time being at least until I decide to get a kit.
I found this thread which is helpful but doesn't answer everything...
so my question is, with a stock cylinder, a 15mm bing, (and a 15mm intake when i get one) hi flow air filter, and a boss, is it a pretty good chance that I'm going to have to go higher than 3 sizes larger on my jet? and along those same lines, what sort of range do most of you keep on hand for jet sizes (below and above what you are running, whether it is kitted or not)?
and another question along these lines, is your carb really as useful size wiase as the intake? like is mine simply acting like a stock 12 should? or is it just a real bad idea?
thanks in advance, sorry this is a bit of a novel... and if there is a thread i am missing just point me to it and we'll call it a day. thanks.
