WOOO!! "This is exactly what I wanted to know but never see anyone talk about" With only having a 0.91 of a gallon for fuel and the 250 Ninja getting between 60 to 65 MPG I did not want to drop to much below 60 MPG even if I cannot park the Ninja on the Side walk :)

I have a 14 MM Carb and was seriously looking at the 17 or 19 PHBG trying to balance the performance and mileage along with avoiding doing a lot of work for very little gain. With just your information I now KNOW I am not going bigger than a 19 MM. I apperciate the 100% answer that covered the questions I was thinking but did not ask!
