new guy eh ! well welcome to the group ! did ya read jetting 101 in here?
http://www.harley-performance.com/ha...arburetor.html also look here http://www.sportster.org/tech/carb/rejetting.shtml good luck lets us know if ya need more helpyou do not have remove the carb to re jet ! you can do it just by removing the carb bottom ! (bowl)Find the four brass screws that hold the bowl on the carb. Using a phillips screwdriver that completely fills the slots in the screws remove them without letting the screwdriver slip and damage the screws. This may take considerable pressure. When removing the screws, hold the bowl in position until they are all out then pull the bowl off straight down. Be extremely careful... the floats are just inside the bowl. The rod will come out of the bellows and hit against the carb body... no you didn't drop it. Set the bowl (with dangling drain hose) aside some place clean. Note the brass tube on it that was sticking up in the carb mouth.nextLooking at the bottom of the carb, find the two jets. The main jet will be more or less in the middle, screwed into the emulsion tube and should say "160" on it for an 883, "170" on it for a 1200, or 190 on it for a Sport or International model. The emulsion tube will have flats on it for a 5/16" wrench. Hold the emulsion tube from turning with the wrench and using a common (flat) blade screwdriver that's wide enough to fill the slots on both sides of the main jet, unscrew the jet (counterclockwise).nextFind the slow jet on the carb bottom. It should say "42" on it and you'll replace it with a #45. It will be down in a tube cast into the carb body. You must find a screwdriver with a blade wide enough to fill the slots in the jet that doesn't taper wider above its tip, or it won't fit down into the tube to reach the jet. You may have to have a machine shop grind a screwdriver down so that it's shaft is no wider than the blade at the tip. Do not try to force an inappropriate screwdriver in or you will crack the cast carb body. Unscrew (counterclockwise) the #42 slow jet and replace it with a #45 slow jet. Tighten firmly, but do not strip. Do not use LockTite.this is only a starting point your slow / main jet size may vary

I'm running '02, 883C with SE slip-ons and I'm running stock jets. Haven't really seen the need yet and I put 15,000 a year on my bike.

You said you have a new 883.... I was under the impression that they weren't carburated anymore.

You could just get one of these:

Hey cool bike and shop. Are you an airbrush artist? It looks it from your avatar. Do you have some examples of your stuff?
