<<i didnt pull the carbs off to jet i put the 145 in and put the shims in the other side. it was still attached so i assumed the carbs were still synchronized. the jetting is my prob.>>
when I did mine at 300 mile or so, I checked the synch after changing the jets, it was good, but I STILL checked it, granted it should'nt be off that much if you did'nt split the carb stack or disturb the linkage..
as far as the shims go, I don't run any, but mine is stock exhaust, shims control the off idle response in the transition area between the pilot jet and the mains.. if it is sluggish at low rpms take the shims out & see if it gets better..
<< where i have been riding the elevation hasnt been far off from where i live maybe 200-300 ft. difference. the temperature hasnt fluctuated more than 20 degrees anytime ive rode. after i ride for about 30 minutes i can smell it rich, but the bike seems to still have good response on take off but not what it should be. im at 1000 ft elevation roughly so i started out with nyrocs settings but wasnt getting the performance i was looking for so i went alittle further, im still not happy with the way the bike is running. im running it this weekend to see if it does it again and then its back to the shop again.>>
2-300 ft diffrence is not anything to worry about, 20 degrees is still within a jet size, not enough to compensate for, if it is bogging down low, and cleaning up at higher rpms that indicates it is rich on the bottom, take the shims out of the needle,
lean condition will run strong, then act like it is running out of steam, rich condition it has sluggish acceleration until the rpms increase, if it runs better at 3/4 throttle than full throttle, it is rich on the mains.. 142/145 is right for me, at 200' elevation, no shims on needle, stock exhaust..
try that & see where it takes you..on my street bike I had to change jets 10 time before I got it right, (it had 4 carbs & I had to split the stack to change jets..about 1 1/2 hr to change settings)
