WOW! cant believe your going that big, what are you at 20,000 feet! I have Keihin 165 in front and Keihin 168 in back, I'm at 800 feet. I'll take a look around and see if I got any...maybe? Are you using a A/F meter?

Man Im not a pro but I think with out having a full sweep A/F gauge I think you're just treading water. I guess you could get it close from the spark plugs. Good luck in whatever you do bro.

To begin with you can't read plugs on these bikes because you can't run the motor at a specific rpm and shut it off... The CVT will always cause the motor to wind down.

If the bike runs like a bat out of hell leave it alone... these bikes don't run well at all lean, not lean enough to hurt anything.

Exactly...and I'm not sure they even make a 205...I think you have to start drilling them out at that point...

Keihin does make 205 and 210.
Sorry I've never been good at reading plugs, too many variables and I think you would have to install new ones for every run to even be close to reading them.
I also disagree that these can't be run to lean to damage anything, a lean motor will run like a motherfkr....for a short period of time.
Whitey..check your pm's, sent ya a message about my meter.

With the unleaded gas we have now it is sometimes hard to get a light tan color on the plug. Toget a good reading on the plug you need used plugs with a carbon build up.Run it around for 15-20 min.,then run it wide open down the road and hold it there for 5 to 10 seconds and turn the key off. When you pull the plug look for the line where the carbon is blown off on the ground strap. The line should be in the middle of the bend of ground strap. If it is up closer to the end,or tip of the strap,it's rich. If it has burned down around the bend towards the threads of the plug,it's lean. It don't mater if it's a two stroke or a lawnmower this will work for the main jet reading.

I have jets clear up to 250's if needed.

This is false... A two stroke will run great lean but will of course have a melt down and thats where all these horror stories come from. To be expected of a two stroke. These bikes don't run well at all lean and damn sure don't make any power if you're running it to lean to hurt something.

Look at it this way... Out of all these people doing their own jetting for the first time and never heard of anyone having a melt down. You think its because everyone is that good or everyone is that lucky? These are 4-stroke motors man... Given with power adders you have to be more cautious but N/A good luck.
