I need help rejetting my Carburetor Guys

I have a 2009 Honda Shadow Aero, and I'm about to Rejet the Carb right after the whole Saw Mod thing.

I don't know how to Rejet the Carb, or where to start. I have rebuilt carbs for old card before and I'm pretty mechanical inclined, but I don't have an idea on how to do this guys.

Can you guys guide me throu this............perhaps some pics would make the whole thing a lot easier.

Or you guys probably know of a website that show pics on how to do this.

Thanks

Before we get all carried away with details about HOW to do it, I gotta ask "what makes you think that you NEED to do it at all ?"

If the pipe mod. is the ONLY thing you have changed, you may not need to change the jets at all. A simple adjustment of the pilot (idle) screw might be all that you need. If it starts and runs OK and doesn't backfire......you probably don't need to do anything at all.

Others more familiar with your model can take it from there.

When I did the mod to my factory pipe, it ran fine and the plugs were fine.

Same song, second verse:

IF the bike is running OK......meaning pretty much the same as it was before the pipe mod......then you don't need to adjust it at ALL.

So once more: What makes you think that you need to do ANYTHING to it at all ??
