And also if i dont get the kit do i just shim the needles? Any help would be appreciated!!! Thanks

Yes, just shimming the needles will work (seems to work better then FP needles IMO). You could get close with the jets by studying some of the settings listed here, but may need to adjust up or down 1 size for your particular situation.

If you do copy jet sizes, use genuine Kehin jets. Other than the notches, I really don't know about the DJ needles, I ended up putting the factory needles back in and shimming them before I got mine smoothed out (ended up adding another shim (think I'm at 1.1mm now) once I started hitting the track, made the 6-8k steady maintainer throttle around corners butter smooth, it was breaking up and annoying before).

I would think my set up would be a close start for you, i'm at 875' above. My bike runs awesome other than at idle.

Is it possible to replace just the o-rings on the mixture screws? I can't find them without having to buy the whole screw kit.
