I would recommend checking the manufacturer's website for recommendations.

If anything, go one jet richer, then do plug readings.

I presume you know to do plug readings, with the "plug chop" method. There's a lot of info on the net.

That will tell you whether you are running rich or lean.

If you still have the std airbox on the carb, leave the jets stock.
If you have a aftermarket air filter on, thats a different story.
