While its apart I wanted to make sure it was jetted right, anyone know what jets I should be running for a full akrapovic system and air box mod (to be done)?

It currently has a 172 main and a 65s pilot. And I am at sea level.

Thanks in advance.

£79 delivered so cheap enough. Did a bit of research and they seem to have good reviews, I will let you all know!

Good price...lets hope you don't get whacked by import duties being outside the EU

Right got the rads fitted today with a small amount of bother, but for £79 I can't really complain..







Which brings me on to the my new problem I have just changed the jets in my standard carb from a 172 to 180 and 65s to 68s. I tried to start it up today and it seems the carb is not filling up with fuel, the bowl is bone dry?? Have I done something stupid when putting it back together like stuck the floats up etc, is that possible??
