Hi, I'm looking to rejet for pod filters. I've read the recommended jetting is anywhere from 85/130 to 90/130. The issue is, I can't seem to find any source of pilot jets larger than 80. if I run 80 / 130 am I going to experience issues?



Thanks.

Just to rule out the stupidity of the Jets R Us page go to the model search.

And what you want is larger main jets not the slow/pilot jets.



If it was me and I just entered into the mess of jetting like you are I would suggest to get several pairs since the $7 shipping is a kick.



Since you're going for pods you should probably order pairs of 85, 90, 125, and 130. That should get you in the ball park.



I just ordered 3 pairs this week to rejet again. Delivery isn't the fastest but it took about 4 days since if you order after 6 nothing gets processed to be sent out till the next day so I put my order in on sunday and it wasn't sent out till tuesday night.



What kind of exhaust are you going to be running? If you're using the stock mufflers and hbox you probably want to order a pair of 120's also.
