Could you elaborate on the above sentence?
Stock mufflers what mains? Akras with large db inserts would be good for what mains? (sea level & warm climate)
Also, having same mains front and back would mean re-balancing the carbs?

Eagerly awaiting for plate to arrive, thanks!

I couldn't imagine doing this mod with stock pipes! The cats would get very hot if its just a touch rich.

With Akras and db killers I'd go with 175/178. I run 2 178's ( *EDIT* I've since determined that this is a bit rich. See post #2 for updated user results and recommendations) in my bike with the same pipes. Years ago I tested O2 out of either jug separately. What I found is that the traditional approach yielded one cylinder that ran richer or leaner than the other... Cylinder head temps didn't vary much with running same mains either. As a result, I've ran same mains since 2007.

No carb sync is necessary. That's an adjustment of the cables.

Brown Santa dropped off the filters 2 hours ago. Everything's boxed up and ready to ship tomorrow.

This one belongs to you, avocado farmer!

Hopefully Im not overstepping anything here, but to everyone that ordered one of these kits, what are you guys doing for jetting? Going with H2W or?

Looking for a little guidance as I would like to talk to someone and order some jets so I can install everything at the same time, then demolish some tires!

Sounds like your elevation is fairly close to what ours is here, here its approx 1600 feet.
