my setup, on my 03 1100 that produced 76 hp and 68 lbs of torque, and AFR os 13.5, with Boss 429 cams,... was 157.5 mains, 17.5 pilots, 1 shims on pro needles, close to11/2 turns on the PMS screws Tims thumbscrews..  and 10hrs on the dyno tuning the carbs to produce the 76 hp... the first run was 67hp.. and an AFR of 11 something. So pulled the carbs and removed the pilot which was 20.0 .. reinstall ... now a second run, which was better but not right .. remove and remove the 160.0 mains.. and reinstall with 157.5 .. mains... much better readings .. but still running rich .. remove and pull the one shim on each needle .. and were getting closer if my memory is right 74 hp on that run but the AFR wasn't right.. some tweaking with the screws finally reached the 76 hp 68 lbs torque.. and a AFR of 13.5 ..  this was all done on the dyno with a hot hot engine ... and a total of 7 removals and reinstalls ..

I remember that Ron! 76 HP is nothing to sneeze at. One of the best running 1100's I've seen.

As the story goes....pods and exhaust will get you 10+ HP.....cams and Dyna another 10+ HP. Like you know, it really wakes these bikes up!

One other thing I just thought of. If you've had the PMS out, or changed them......make sure you don't have an extra O ring stuck up inside the opening. I've seen that happen numerous times.

Thanks Mick ... when I find those Dyno sheets I'll resend you a copy. they're buried deep in my garage.. when the borders open up .. I need to pull the carbs and go through them before I fire her up... I know I lost the 502 dyno sheets .. the box that they were in got wet.. the tarp that was covering up some stuff that wouldn't fit in the storage... while I was in the build mode... 

LOL Because they are idiots, but you believe what you please. hahahahahahaha

I'd help, but you seem to think  it's not you, but it is. A real mechanic would know that more air in means more air out, but you seem to think that you don't need to let the air out. The pods & the bike are NOT the problem, but you wouldn't listen to my advice anyway. Good luck!

Hey Mick,

What would you suggest as pod kits for a new install ?

I'd check with Tim B. If that fails.....try Shane at SS Custom Cycle....if that fails, the KB has info on putting your own kit together

put your own kit together 2).. RU0600 K & N filters... you'll need a couple of jets 147.5  ( you might want to have on hand 145. and 150. )  and a couple of shims..   the reason for the different jets depends on your elevation .. the KB as it in there as well...
