SLX Carb Mods
I plan on installing VForce reed valves and a Hot Seat waterbox on my SLX ,SBT rebuilt 1050 engine.Is the stock Keihin jetting okay?

boozeo, first I'd lake to WELCOME you to the green Hulk Forums!!!
They are going to need to know the year of your ride as jetting configurations are different. Some are already borderline lean and some simple mods can put your craft in danger.
From the looks of it the only thing you may need to do is open the highs an 1/8 to 1/4 turn BUT I'd wait for a jetting guy to come along as this is certainly NOT my field of expertise.

With the reduced compression of that SBT engine, you should be plenty safe. Unfortunately the stock Keihins don't have high speed screws, so if you were going to jet up, you'd have to change the high speed jets.

need to post what #'s are on the cylinder bases to determine what style motor sbt sent you,boost port or non boost port,had a big deal with sbt sending a boost port motor out to go in a 99 slx and burned it down because of the jetting difference

These were the things I was worried about but just wasn't familiar with. No high speed jets.........man am I spoiled with the Novi's.
