Bigger bore usually doesn't need drastically different jets, but yours sounds too lean to start with from my experiences.
Thanks Dave I had the feeling the bike was not getting the gas so i think you're onto it with regards the jetting. I will take your advice and am going to try a 120, 118, 65 combo. Will let you know how it goes. Am still waiting for my conrod to arrive from partzilla
