    Sorry to sound dim, but are these your settings, not et james? and the 165 jet is the main jet?

    Hi Lads, Just to add to this, my 2015 300exc was using a tank of petrol to everybody's half tank, It was proper rubbish to the point of spoiling rides, I know it was being run in but never the less. Everyone on KTMForum.com seems to be going for a 38 Pilot, 165 main Jet & an RM250 needle NECJ, second clip from top (pt no: 13383 37FE0) with the air screw at 1.75 turns out, this is supposed to be the best you can get it, Big Orky did his the other week & is so said smack on and very noticeable in crispness, fuel & pretty much everything else, I will be doing mine the same when I get back home. hope this helps someone.
