I was just wondering how many of you trust the "tuning" stickers posted on various areas of your sled? Jetting for altitude and temp. Clutch tuning........

Do you take this info as gospel, base line, or just blow it off and do it your own way?

the only stickers i ever look at are the suspension set up ones. can't say i abide by them though, because i have it set stiff enough for a 250-300 pound guy! i only weigh 160. so no, i don't pay much attention to em.

Well, not many 'smart' people are stupid enough do put false stickers on a sled. For one, its illegal, and two, it makes you look like an ass when you put 800 triple triple stickers on your Jag 440. ( Bad example, but I thought it was a kick in the pants)

on my acrtic cat jag it has a jetting recomendation sticker, id say its a pretty good baseline, it may be a bit on the side of running the engine rich, but then again how many people here have you heard of here burning a piston by running rich?, exactly, those stickers are there for a reason, id just about stay with what they say maybe go down "leaner" on the main, but do a plug chop just to make sure your not running lean. a shade rich is a good thing, your wallet will thank me.

if its not a CAT, then it must be a dog!

yea, we don' t go by the suspension stickers either. i weigh 140, my dad weighs about 230, and we have it set up for 240 to 260. but that way it tackles really big bumps better i think.

I may be young, but I ain't dumb!!!

most stickers for carb jet sizing is on the conservative side. meaning that it is set up to run rich. Start where the sticker suggests, and if you think you are running rich, slowly jet down one step at a time, taking a plug check at each step, till you get it where you want it to be

If it's under warrenty and you go by the stickers then you got nothing to worry about! I just ask my dealer and he hooks me up, so I don't worry about it.
