Ok so if i where to get some 36mm pwks on alky that where setup for a 7mil stock cylinder how much of a difference would there be in jetting if i where to put them on a drag ported 350?

There is no jet size on the main jet but i know it is BIG.

Well i have lectrons but dont have the extra pj's yet and need to get my needles in for them.

I dont think the main will need to be drilled any bigger there already HUGE.

Bobby...regardless of how big the main is, keep in mind it can only flow as much as the dump tube. So a .125 main can only flow .122 if the dump is that big. it can work the other way, say .122 dump and .118 main....the main being more restrictive.

Pick or index out the dump so you know where you are. When you get close to .125 on the main, the threads get real thin....

Dump tube is the tube where the needle (bottom of the slide) goes into the fuel bowl, and into the main jet.

That is also where the main jet screws into. (On Mikunis it's actually removable)
It's also called the emulsion tube.

That needs to be drilled larger as well. I can't tell you what the factory ID is for that tube, but I can tell you you normally drill it out as big or slightly larger than the main. Ex. .122 dump and .120 main.

You can't replace that tube on a Keihin. So, go too big, carb is scrap.... Just like with gas jetting, higher elevations require less fuel.
So someone that runs .122 dump and .120 main at sea level could run .116 dump and .114 mains at high elevations (think Colorado, Wyoming, etc.)

The dump or emulsion tube's job is to, for lack of better terms, mistify the fuel charge into the cylinder. Mix air and the fuel for the incoming charge of fuel.

If you were watering plants, would you just turn the hose on full blast and soak one tiny area...or would you put the hose end on sprinkler or mist, so you cover more.

Similar...you want the fuel like a misty charge so it combusts more efficiently.

I know I'm not using the best terms or descriptions, maybe someone could help with the terms or wording, but that's the jist of it....

Send me your carbs, Rico. I will set them up for you.

Keep in mind, smaller motors need bigger jets generally...both my friends 4 mils (Shayne and JT) require a LOT more fuel than my 10 mm motor.

I might be talking out of my azz here, but I believe the longer stroke and/or bigger bore pulls more fuel out of the jet...so...smaller or shorter stroke motors will need more fuel via bigger jets than a larger/bigger stroke motor.

dajogejr you r correct ,the bigger motor has a stronger carb jet signal than a smaller motor. the smaller motor does not take more fuel. but because it has a weaker signal. it requires a larger jet for the fuel to be pulled out, by the weaker signal. and then you run into that with, super large carbs. they have weaker jet signals than smaller carb's

Back when I was running PWK 39's on my 10 mil, my jetting was a bit smaller than my buds and their 4 mils...plugs don't lie..

Where they were running .125 mains and dumps, drilled out wide open PJs...I could run .122 dump and .120 main, with about 3-4 out on the DM Superjet, and have plenty of fuel...

thats correct your ten mill pulls so much more air threw the carb than a 4 mil ,it creates more suction at the jet . the smaller motor cant pull the same amount of fuel, be cause it has less suction at the jet. so it takes the larger jet for the fuel can be sucked up easer by the smaller motor
