thanks skid. i have the very same slp jetting and clutching link from slp but the other link i was not aware of. I plan on going ahead with the pipes but need a hands on lesson of all the carb adjustments as well as clutching combos. I REALLY appreciate everybody input even tho I am getting conflicting opinions but it is good for me to hear it all. I am very happy I joined the forum and find myself checking it many times a day. Thanks again all!
