    Keep in mind that this is for a 600 NOT a 1200 so the number of turns may be different.

    I have neither the time,or the inclination, to explain myself to a man, who rises and sleep under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner, in which I provide it. I'd rather you just say 'thank you' and go on your way.

      Also, any Dynojet dealer will have the small washers.
      I just fitted some to my CVK40s

        Anyway, it is not very much work to remove the carbs... as long as you have a very long allen wrench wrench for one or two of the boot clamps. IIRC it is a 4mm. Motionpro sells one; it's about 10 inches long.

        Like this:

        My mistake, it's a 3mm https://www.amazon.com/Eklind-54930-...18858758&psc=1
        And this is for the 1200. It may or may not be needed on the 600. I keep forgetting we're talking about a 600, sorry.
        How To Cheat on Personality Tests
        1. When asked for word associations or comments about the world, give the most conventional, run-of-the-mill, pedestrian answer possible.

        2. To settle on the most beneficial answer to any question, repeat to yourself:
        (a) I loved my father and my mother, but my father a little bit more.
        (b) I like things pretty well the way they are.
        (c) I never worry much about anything.
        (d) I don't care for books or music much.
        (e) I love my wife and children.
        (f) I don't let them get in the way of company work.

          It's all good. I will count the factory setting when I turn it in and go from there using the idle drop procedure. Thank you all!
