Looking forward to seeing how it turns out.. Sounds like you're getting close.
Heading out on a trip Thursday, different bike, so i won't be able to raise needles and test till week or so out. thanks for response. I will check the mileage when i get time to run to the station, but to be honest i really don't care if its getting 28 MPG or 38 as long as it's running strong. That why stations are everywhere in the U.S. I do however see where some may be more concerned about this.

now that I have my bike apart I can ask: do you need the carb breathers? I believe those went to a "y" and then down out of the airbox, but were not connected to anything. the crankcase breather (to the top of the airbox?) I could see to keep oil vapors at bay though.

jets arrived today from RMATV. Tomorrow they go in.

speaking of the uni filters- I'm assuming these are the same for the 950 ADV vs the SE? I might be tackling my filter install/jetting in the near future and would like to have everything ready to go.

I would assume the vent tubes are all the same size. Carb breathers was simply a preference. I figured since i was doing everything else might as well keep the crap out of the carbs

got everything together today. test drive (with 1 tank ) says...oh yeah

175 mains and i put the 45 pilots in. left the needles on the position they were. Adjusted the floats as close to 4mm as I could.
I only did 6 miles but there is a big power difference
That is all.

When people post their jetting settings it would help if you put any relevant info in the post. Like:

Exhaust (Akro w inserts, wings, Remus, FMF Q, etc)
Bike setup ( 2 into 1, year, ADV or SE, etc)
Altitude
Needle (stock or h2w (I think they use the Factory pro needle?)

Hopefully I'll dig into mine next week.

good point.

FMF dual exhaust on 2004 ADV. about 800' ASL. I assume stock needle as other jetting was stock,

I forgot to check the turns on the rear IMS but the front was two. I test drove with the right tank off so I should be able to get at it to check after work in the morning.

I think the manual lists the idle air jet at 50, but mine was 68

I've got a few more miles on it now...man this filter really changed the bike for the better. Mucho more power everywhere. Best mod to date, no doubt!

Thanks SW!!!

That was probably the starter jet. Air jets are hidden on the other side under the plastic flange held in place by 2 - 4mm screws. Best to leave them alone IMHO.

I really, really need to do a write up on installation...its on the list . I was sorta hoping one of you guys would do a thread in the OC about how to do the install.

I will take your word for it. I've looked at a lot of carb diagrams lately. must be confused

Pilot, main, starter are all next to each other then. All I know is the parts fit where I put em
Installation directions would be helpful for those of us not used to digging into monster carbs. Just pointing out what is where.

Good stuff though.

Yeah, been there, done that too back in 2006 when I first dove into my carbs. I meant to put something together when I had Meathead's bike in the shop but as it turned out, we were having too much fun to take pictures.

Ive done a few write ups on different things (sleds, trucks, shit like that) and I totally hear ya when you say this!

I get so into having fun working on the stuff, that half the time when I did take pics for write ups, I would actually have to take the part back off, and take a pic and reinstall it haha.

Just stumbled upon this and placed my order.

Seems like a good time to do this since my bike is currently apart and I was going to buy an air filter anyhow.

Excited!

How many of you are running this setup, and ride in muddy/dusty environments? I love the idea of getting rid of the air box, but I'm scared of getting the carbs filthy. Is it really a concern, or should I just learn to love the simplicity of it?
