The blue needle in the JD kit is a half step richer than the red. The colors indicate hot/cold.

Yeah a JD kitted FCR is as close to EFI you can get. Throttle response is surprising.

Runs much better at higher rpm's and is a bit more snappy.

Now to fix the stator issue :frustrated:

Related to the JIS screwdrivers Motion Pro now has some JIS bits in their product line up: 08-0576 (JIS 1), 08-0577 (JIS 2), and 08-0578 (JIS 3) plus a T handle set with 3 bits 08-0557. I've got screwdrivers but don't carry them on the bike. The bits will be better since they don't add much bulk and I already carry a bit driver.
