In my experience... that will only make it worse. But... you can try it...
The pilot, or slow circuit, can be adjusted by manipulating two parts: the air screw and the pilot jet. The air screw controls the flow of air into the circuit. Turning the air screw clockwise reduces the air flow and richens the circuit. Turning it counter clockwise increases the airflow and leans the circuit. You can therefore use the air screw to fine tune the pilot circuit. The pilot jet restricts/regulates the flow of gasoline from the float bowl to the venturi. Pilot jets have a precisely machined orifice/hole running through their center which gasoline passes through. Increasing the size of the pilot jet ( size of the hole ) richens the circuit by supplying more gasoline; i.e. removing a 40 pilot jet and installing a 42 richens the circuit.Woods Rider wrote:I think I will go back to the 145 main, but I might go down to the 40 pilot since my air screw at 3 turns out still causes the RPMs to rise.

I still have my snorkle in since I love that SUPER quiet, and I have not noticed much difference with it removed(other than making it louder). . . .I am still looking for the sweet spot on the air screw.

Yes, I have taken off the airbox lid and put it back on about a dozen times. It probably does make a bit of a difference, but it just seems louder to me. When I take off the lid, it requires me to go back to the 145 main. I just love the super quiet electric sound/feel with the airbox lid in place, so much so that I probably downplay the performance benefits of removing it.
