My buddy sent me the air jet and i dont know the size
needle main and idle jet are the biggies

the chassie is way better for mere mortals on the older gen bikes

great info in the owners DOC on UHE

Do I understand correctly; You run a 182 Main?
What is your altitude?

What would you guys suggest as main jet for a 550 @ 6000 feet (stock exhaust etc)?

Send it over to taffy or sparks. The sooner it goes, the sooner it will be back.

New FE501

Picked up this 1994 FE501 over Skype a couple days ago and had it delivered (in Kabul the moment). It came with spare plastics and an extra aluminum subframe as well. Starts and runs but needs a new muffler and new stator. I'll be throwing some money at it here in a few months.

Thanks man,
The guy who had it before me said ADS in Ogden rebuilt the carb, when he got it back it became hard to start, at that point he just wanted to unload it.. Got it for $800.
