Default Mikuni HS-42 on 2000 1200S

I have a 2000 1200S and have just installed a MIkuni HS-42 carb. Started and idled great. I am curious if any of the board member have this card on a 1200 and live in Colorado or similar elevations and what was you best jet size in tuning? Stock was a 160 main and I installed a 155 for first start. I do have 2-1 thunderheaders. Thank for the input.

What pilot did it come with ?
Does it have the correct throttle cable bracket for a Sportster ?

yes single throttle cable is working fine. I have the 155 jet in there now and seems to be only tad rich smelling. might try 150. I believe they added these jets to my kit on ordering knowing that I live in Colorado via my zip code. Surely there is someone with a 1200 sportster in colorado running a Mikuni and have messed with the jetting. i know I can read plugs etc but was curious what others ended up going with. Thanks for the input.

looks like it came with the stock main jet which is a 160 and the needle has already been leaned out by moving the clip up one spot. i have the 150 jet in now and seems to be running the same. fresh new plugs look fine after long ride.
