David,
I am using 2 sets of springs in my carbs.One is a stock set the other is from 
a dynojet stage one kit.I spoke to Mark Moisan at Pro-Star Columbus last 
weekend and he claims he gets all his needles springs and jets from Dynojet.
Originally I had a Dynojet kit in my bike that required having the extra hole 
drilled in the slide we plugged that hole off when we were dynotuning mine.



     Feedback?  I'm thinking I need a different taper needle to fix the
 lean spot, but how are the tapers measured?  I made a see through cover
 on my airbox, so I know approximately where the slides are at this rpm
 under no load. >>

You did exactly what my tuner and I were considering (the see thru cover on 
the airbox).As far as needles I cant help you there as I am still using the 
ones that came in my Dynojet kit when I did the pipe and jet kit.When you 
find out something that works please let me know.
At least you have the benefit of the 02 Sensor I did all my tuning without 
one.I think there is still HP to be gained on my bike with more tuning.But 
after dynorun #110 then bike was running decent and I wanted to ride.
Good luck and if I can be of any help let me know.
