The bastard problem child.

These jets are odd. The stock one and rocky Mountain is small. The two from the local honda shop are so much bigger.

The local Honda shop gave you the wrong jets.

I'm running Dyna-beads and have been for three front tires and three back tires, I have had no issues, runs smooth down the road,

I'm not running rim locks BTW.

You're welcome. The big jets are too large to fit your carburetor. Get your money back from the Honda dealer.

I have had my dyna beads in for thousands of miles and I really like them. I added them when I installed the tubliss system to balance the rim locks. I put in two ounces per wheel and have zero bounce at speeds well in excess of the posted speed limit. I really like mine and I would recommend them to a friend

Here's a video that demonstrates dyna beads balancing abilities...

Those large jets had the correct thread size? If the thread size was correct, and the jets seated to the correct depth, without interference, then they were okay. My replacement jets were the same size as the factory jets, and I have only seen jets the same size, as shown in the following photograph.

Checking the oil level and adjusting the valves a couple times a week doesnt seem like too much trouble...
