Hi all, I'm mostly interested in the XLTs (go figure) but we should get a list of all the stuff out there that we know about. Here's a template:

Sled: 94 XLT
Motor: 583
Pipes: Yes
Clutch Kit: No
Altitue Range: 5000 - 9000
Carbs: VMSS34
Main Jets: 160
Idle Jets: 35
Needle Position: Middle

Might be useful to others trying to dial it in or just general setup.

So if you know... Post away!

This is an excellent idea! It's the only place I've seen it suggested. Hopefully it'll come in handy for guys like me who want to get an initial setup for the evironment they operate in. Anyway here's mine.

Sled: 95 Summit
Motor: 583
Pipes: Stock
Clutch Kit: No
Altitude Range: 2700-6000
Carbs: VM38
Main Jets: 280
Needle jet: 480-p6
Idle Jets: 55
Needle Position: 3 (middle)
Misc: HAC is junk and it's not going back in!

I'm stiil trying to set up my carbs sans HAC. If anybody sees a mismatch with my settings vs altitude...PLEASE point it out!

This can be a useful tool, so let see wh

my 87 A/C jag with f/c 440 comes stock with,34mm, mukini carb a 25 pilot jet and a 300 main, and the needle in the center position, it seem way rich but that is the stock setup, ive just had the sled a short while enough to ride it once, ive already looked at the chart and decided to drop to a 285 main, this should be a better setup for my alltuide"below 5000 ft" and a good tempature range 10 - 35 deg F usally is the temp when i ride, also this may still a bit rich, but time and time again i say a bit to the rich side is not a bad thing.

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

Keep 'em coming fellas. If you know. It's all good stuff. I was only more interested in XLTs but you can be assured everyone's sled numbers are important to someone else.

Thanks for the replies. This can be copied to erick's FAQ eventually right?
