As a follow up, I dyno'd the 175/178 set up and it was way rich like 12.0 most of the time.
Dropped to 170/172 - Beauty!
I have FMF Q's which are pretty restrictive with spark arrestors.

So my understanding is that with the ethanol fuel you need to typically run one size larger jet.

okay, thanks.
I will focus on the mains now that I am at 4.5 on the floats.
My plan is to go from 175/180 to 172/178 and back to 4.0 on the floats to clean up the acceleration low to mid.
