    Question Tuning carbs on SLX...need specs

    Been very busy with work but taking time out today to work on my carbs and stopping in to see if anyone here had specs for carb tuning.

    I have a Keihin triple carb setup on the SLX. (factory)
    I changed reeds and also moved up in the pilot jets from a size #65 to a #70.

    I would like to adjust the carbs back to factory specs and try tuning from that point, however have had a difficult time getting a book on the SLX and had to buy one for '96 through '98 models. My ski is a '99 and the carb setup shown in the book is not the same.

    Anyone having experience or advice for tuning, please chime in.
    Thank you.
    Peter

    tuning

    go back to the 65 pilots,factory setting for the lows as well.the sync screws for the cen and pto carbs wear over time(plastic),resyncing the carbs usually makes big improvements in idle quality and takeoff response
