Default Needle clip position

What is the best needle clip position for raptor 660 with yoshimura pipe, stock airbox setup and 150 and 155 main jet sizes and what is the # of turns out on the mixture screws. How the heck do you adjust the mixture screws when you have to take the carbs off every time you want to adjust them? Should I set them and forget them or should I keep ripping off my carbs 100 times to get them perfect? Thanks for any help.

The position that makes it run best between 1/4 and 3/4 throttle - experiment, grasshopper.

I must admit that the extended pilot screws are just about one of my favorite mods! They're relatively cheap and make adjustments a breeze.

Or just use a screw driver bit for a drill or cordless screw driver.

You don't have to adjust your fuel screws that much any way. Once they are set you can pretty much leave them.

Both the fuel screws and the needles are set to the bikes best performance, all any body on thi site can tell you is a starting point, and after that you have to try and find where the best setting is..................

I wouldn't get the ones on top. The tips are totally different than the stock screws. The pilot circuit suffers from it.
