I'm in the rebuild section of my CX500C, and have added two short straight pipes that exit next to my feet, and bell mouth filters. I know I will have to change the jet sizes and then adjust the air/fuel mixture screws. But I don't know what sizes of jets to buy or if I will need a different size needle (I have never rejet a carb before so I am clueless). Has anybody experimented with jet sizes and can maybe point me in the right direction?
Thanks.

you can start with 90/120
but that could be fine tuned a little more........but this mix will get you going(and more on the rich side so its a safe bet)
