Start with a 120 or 125 main jet. Don't change anything else till running and fully warmed up - then set the idle, adjust the slide needle for midrange IF IT NEEDS ADJUSTED - then after the engine is broke in, run it up to full throttle to see if it needs jetted up or down at the top of the rpm range. If it tapers off and seems like it wants to do more but can't, then jet up - if it runs up to a point and suddenly acts like the choke is on, then jet down

k2n filter lid is like running open air box, you will need between a 180 to 185 main(starting point) if its a stock carb. if its been changed to a fcr carb then the jets will have to be diff

it very hard to get jetting perfect when ported without a dyno
here to help knows his stuff, and is normally on with his info,
but 120 to 125 would work with full exhaust and air box lid on.
it will be lean with your setup
