Carb rejetting with aftermarket muffler install?

I seen this ad for aftermarket mufflers. The ad says carb rejetting may be desired for best performance. Has anyone done this? Thanks in advance.

You won't need to rejet. Take a look at your plugs after you run them a few hundred miles and note the color. If the bike is running a bit lean, adjust your pilot screws out 1/4 turn and run it awhile and check again. Unless your mufflers are bad, I would not replace them.

They are getting bad Bill. I pulled them off (doing the rear tire change) and poured a bunch of rust/pieces out of the tubes. I am in no hurry, may do it next season. :|
