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 will be fine with no further adjustments.

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. :|
