    Does anyone have any carb tuning tips or suggestions for 9 inch Delkevic slip-on? I'm at sea level.

    No jet kit at all. Get 147.5 mains and you should be good to go until you decide to get a full header and not just a set of slip-ons.

    thanks Sean,
    I'm actually going from a full header with stage 7 to slip-ons. I did go down to 150 mains and have a set of 147.5 that I was thinking of installing. I bumped my PFJ up to 40. I'm using stock Canadian adjustable needles on the 3rd groove.
    I have a serious illness that keeps me always wanting to make it better. currently I think 99.9% of riders would be satisfied. I'm just a tuner that never knows when to stop.

    Thanks for your input
    Toolman
