Great news guys, installed the new carb with the 115 main jet. It runs awesome. Weather is in the mid to high 60's. Sunny. took her up the coast on Highway 1 to Cambria, Calif. Very scenic 60 mile ride

I think I'm going to switch to the recommended extended high speed spark plug. Since most of my riding is 65 mph or plus. At least give it a try. Thank you for your help !

Wow, what a difference that makes. I have a few observations from my 100 plus mile ride the other day. Fuel mileage, not quite the same with the 115 main jet. I might order a 112 main jet to try. Acceleration is great , top end feels good as well. But the one thing I did notice. That I was on the rev limiter quite a bit, compared to before. Any thoughts? Thank you

I ordered the 112 main jet. I hope get back my fuel mileage. Stock jet, it was close to 60 mpg. 115 main jet. It dropped to 40 ish . Great power. On the rev limiter a lot. top speed of 78 to 80 mph. Along with no popping on decel. Keep in mind it a brand new factory honda carb. I switched to the 112 main jet. hope to get 50 ish mpg. still have good power. Happy medium. I did dectect a little bit of popping on decel. maybe beacuse its a bit leaner, or just the fact that the muffler is def rusted out and needing to be replaced. Plus I about to install the denso high speed recommended plug. Since I spend most of my time at 65 plus mph. when the weather clears up , ill give a update
