Hopefully you will find this guide useful if you are re-jetting your bike as a good guide of where to start from. The following is what other VL & VZ riders have reported to have been successfully. If anyone jets their bike with any combination of exhaust & air kit, could they please post the information here for others riders to reference too.

dude, great post..
however i am still lost, just soulless.. ha , could use your help.. first off... what do you mean by "155 or 160 main jet" and where can i find this on the bike? can you send pictures or a vid? i hate to be so needy..
just FYI, i fall under he "Aftermarket or stock pipes (baffles or debaffled) & Uni filter or K&N (airbox mounted)" section of your guide..

also
can you clarify a bit for me about the "Mikuni & DynoJet, Size Comparison Chart." ? not sure what that is, or how to find out what mine is..

HELP thank you

Rasty sadly the only way you can know what jets you have in your bike is to eyeball the jet and that means getting into the carb. As for the Mikuni and dynojet sizes, I think Dave posted them because they are the most used jets but they are different in size because they have a different internal taper as would other makes.
So if ever you read anywhere that someone has rejetted there carband you want to follow there instructions, if they have not listed the make of jet then the intructions are next to useless as they all have different internal tapers unless one maker mkes them for more than one seller. An example of this would be that dynojet also make them for Vance and Hines to sell as there own kits I believe

Ahh, thank you captain for some feed back..

so, essentially, what you're saying, is that i have to get under "my hood" so to speak and look for a label of some kind that tells me the size of the dynoset/mikuni?

if i told you my make model and year (every single thing on there is stock except for the air intake) could you tell me what the sizes are some how?

The problem that you have Rasty is that the jets shown above are a giude, no more no less. 2 identical bikes will have a different jet setup so if you are going to get a garage to do it for you, its for them to work it out but if you are doing it yourself then by picking one of the jet set ups closest to your set up you may not have the perfect setup but will have a setup that will be close enough.

Question here- are those the same size jets on front and rear? Other guides seem to suggest different jet sizes on front and rear. 

Side note- why is that even the case? I can't understand why you'd want a different size jet on the front and rear.

Example: http://home.wyan.org/~jrhdlh/LLs_Jetting_Procedure.pdf

Different sizes front are rear are due to rear cylinder running hotter.
