    I think if you look on here you can find the Dynojet instructions for what jets you need, be aware Dynojet sizes are not Mikuni sizes! The CV throttle slides' needles are different too, Sean Morley should have them. one2dmax@aol.com

    The holes are for tubing for the breather ass'y.

    If your pulling the factory airbox and running pods instead I do believe you would need the restrictors also. Morley has those and they are pretty cheap. I had to use them when I went to a custom filter lid.

    On needles and jets you might also reflect on Morley and others for a jumping off point. The PO of my bike had the Kerker and the Dynajet stage 1 kit installed, the local shop set it up the jetting per Dynajet instructions. It was so rich it was stumbling and stunk of faw fuel, started hard and got dismal MPG. I had to drop several jet sizes to get it good and proper like she should be, I'm at 4000'. Even with the free flowing filter led and full Kerker exhaust I'm a couple steps leaner than factory jetting.

    They go into the air vents tube holes on top of the carbs. Sean is the man to contact for all these type of needs. I've dynoed mid 120's with the air box and stock needles. With some adjustments of course. Putting a stage 7 kit in can kill your low end and mid range without a lot of careful trial and error tuning. Do read Mark Milnes threads on stage 7 set up.

    The holes on top of the filters are for the crankcase breather system that comes with Sean's kit or the stage 7 setup. Any Gen 1 Vmax can take advantage of this.

    Thanks. I was just curious. The only thing I did to mine was removed muffler and put my hybrid Jardine on. I swear it "feels" like it has a smidgen more umf but definitely sounds better !:biglaugh:

    I think Sean has mentioned before the DJ Stage 1 is pretty-much useless. Go BIG or go-home. DJ Stage 7 or Morley's Muscle kit, and a full aftermarket exhaust to increase your HP. I have Stage 7 and kept my VBoost intact. I am at sea level, and am using 147.5 mains. UFO 4/1 full exhaust.
