Kawasaki KD80X carb specs?

I just dragged home an '89 Kawasaki KD80X. I gather that they're not the most common bike since they were only sold for two or three years, but I think it's kind of a neat thing. It will be a good learner bike for when all my nephews and friends' kids graduate from the single-speed, auto-clutch, Suzuki JR50 that I have. It ran when I bought it but the carb was certainly in need of a cleaning.
Now that I have it apart I'd like to have the factory jetting specs for the carb but I can't find them anywhere online. Does anyone here have a manual that gives that info? I'd just like to verify that I have the right jets, the needle clip in the right position, the float height, and the pilot screw baseline.
Thanks.

Outstanding. Thank you very much. One more thing; Could you tell me what the stock bore size is? I'm trying to determine if my motor has been bored or not. Thanks again.
