I'm having a 686 kit installed, 11:1, stg. 2 cam, CT pipe, pro designs foam filter, open airbox. Was thinking of going with either a Dynojet or Vito's jet kit, what would you recommend and what jetting should I start at? I am at about 500-800' above sea level. Thanks.

I like the taper of the gyt-r needles, you can purchase that jet kit from your local dealership, it comes with 25 pilot jets (which you will need), the needles and an assortment of main jets.

for your setup I'd start with 25 pilots 2.5 turns out on the fuel screws, gyt-r needles on 4th clip, 165/170 main jets. That should be real close.

I have noticed that some jet kits come with springs too, is that something I need to get, or is not really that essential? Does the GYTR kit come with springs?

the gyt-r does not come with springs. I know the DJ does but I have never found them necessary to get proper jetting. The springs are supposed to help keep the slides from bouncing in rough terrain.

They are lighter tension springs to allow the slides to opean up faster.

UPDATE: I ended up going with the CT jet kit and the bike runs awesome. I believe the shop installed the 165/170 combo. Although CT said to start with the 175/180... I'll have to double check, I may be mistaken on where the shop has it now.

Problem: I was hoping that by buying the EHS outerwears kit for the airbox that it would flow close to enough that I could put the lid back on for riding trails and be ok... WRONG!!! lol Runs good in the low to mid RPMS, but then runs pretty rich on the top end. They are going to take it down a size on the mains i think to go with this airbox setup. I'll continue this in the jetting section so it doesn't eat up any more of your time.
Thanks for all your input though. I'll let you know how it turns out.
