Rebuild done, where to start with jetting?
Finally have a top to bottom rebuild done on a '88 XT600, I have a Lectron carb for it but I figure it best to do the initial startup on the stock carb. The last time this unit was running was in British Columbia at around 650m (2,000 feet) above sea-level, so I am assuming it was jetted for that altitude. Now we are at around sea-level, one size bigger? I am running a big-bore (96mm) 11.5:1 compression with a supertrapp exhaust. Where is a good place to start for jets?
Also have a MSD high performance ignition coil which fits very nicely in the spot where the stock coil goes, should give me a real nice snappy spark. I did this on a '76 RD400 (two stroke twin), replaced the stock coils with Delco automotive coils and I found I got much fewer fouled plugs, smoothed out the idle real nice too. My only issue is that the RD was a points-system (until 1980) and the XT is a CDI (I am running an aftermarket CDI, don't know which kind). Will there be any problems running a high tension coil on the CDI? I would rather not frig-up the CDI as they tend to be rather pricey.
