I was debating about upgrading to a 685. I might hold off until later as it's outside of my budget and be especially adamant about checking my oil level until the upgrade is made. When you install a 685 kit, do you typically install new jets as well? From what I've researched, there seems to be some amount of debate here.

I'm at 5,000ft of elevation as it is. Perhaps the increased displacement and elevation will cancel each other out?

Thanks for the quick replies everyone!
