sorry, i was saying that I have a 14/12 sha with the stock jet in it.

The bike came with a homemade intake and had a 14/12 sha on it when I bought it, so I bought a new 14/12 sha to get it running.

I didn't even know until just a couple days ago that I have a A55

I was reading about modding the slide on the SHA carbs to help lean out the midrange...which is where mine seems to be sluggish.

If I cover the half the air intake with tape the midrange becomes more sluggish but the top end feels a bit better. So I think it is running a bit rich in the midrange and lean on the top end. I'm hoping to mod the slide and put in a larger jet to get more power.

When I have a day where the weather is good I plan to do some plug chops at half and full throttle to see if my assumptions are true...then mod the slide/change jet size accordingly.
