<<  Jeez....I don't think you could call that a "dip" its absolutely
 dying.  First I don't think that could be needle taper because generally
 needle taper affects 3000 to 5000 rpm, needle height affects 5000 to
 7000 and the main jet affects 7000 on, that's from my jet kit
 instructions.  I think its definately running out of fuel or for some
 reason its not being burned, but not because of a jet problem.  He said
 he wanted to put a A/F moniter on but is the dyno so bad that it doesn't
 have one?  (those sensors you see stuck down the exhaust)  Problems like
 this on Harleys almost always boil down to a fuel restriction, petcock,
 small fuel lines, to small a tank vent line.  I wonder how affended he
 would be if someone suggested going to a different tuner with a Factory
 (if ones available) dyno instead of a Dynojet.  But anyway did I read
 that right and its making 200+ horsepower?  Wow.

*i have tried main jets anywhere from 270 to 190 and there has been absolutely
no change in the power curve(or lack there of really)

*my tuner doesnt have a CO analizer yet

* it isnt fuel restriction I have a Pingle Guzzler petcock also have inline
gages and there is plenty of fuel getting to the carbs

a couple of suggestion that I have received and will have my tuner try today
is that the springs for the slides may be too weak thereby allowing the slides
to blow open
and that the taper on the needles may not be enough

I will be sure to let everyone know how this turns out
