GSTwin.com's own Srinath and his great jetting formulas
(don't buy a jet kit)

My jetting formula is simple and the line of thought is also quite elementary.
Here goes...
All countries except US (even canada) had 40 pilot jets. That is on a fully stock bike. So first thing to do even if the bike was entirely stock is that.
Pipe and air filter affect the top 1/2 of the rev range. They have minimal effect below 3K and completely transform the mid-top end.

1 size bigger mains (125 up from 122.5 stock) with a UNI in the airbox and pipe, and 1 washer under needle raising it 1/2 mm.
2 sizes bigger mains (127.5 up from 122.5 stock) with a K&N in the airbox and pipe and 2 washers under needle raising it 1 mm.

Anytime you tweak the pilots you want to have the option of resetting the air mixture at idle. So take out the brass plug that they put on the air screw so you can fiddle with the air screw...Set it to 3 turns out.
That should do it.

If you want to do a stage 3 - Take off the airbox and put K&N's on instead then you need 150 mains. The rest is all the same as the K&N's in the airbox.
