Recommend Jettting for 1983 V65 with Kerker Exhaust

(1/2) > >>

Hi Billy,

I have finally gotten my hands on a 1983 V65 Magna Project bike. Inevitably, I will need to tear the carbs down to do the cleaning and rebuild. Would you be able to recommend the jetting setup and a kit that I would source from you once I get to this point.
Many thoughts for your expertise in advance.

Dave

40 slows, 142, maybe 145 mains. It is hard to dial it in perfect without a dyno/O2 wand up the pipe.
You want the mega or mega + kit. On the website or Billys Place here at the bottom pf the page.

djohns:
Thank you for the reply Billy!!

Stretch:
With a stock filter I'd probably stay with the 140, if you're going to put a K&N filter in it then consider upping to 142.

C420sailor:
I'm running stock air filter, 70A carbs, laser headers and Mac mufflers. 142 mains and 40 slows, 1HE needles, 6mm float height. At sea level, she ran over 100rwhp with an A/F ratio just at or above 13.0:1. 145s would be fat, especially at altitude and/or on a warmer day. Would the K&N justify 145s with your exhaust? Maaaaybe. With stock exhaust? No way, Jose.

I'd start with 142s.
