Since it is a two stroke there will be no stock jetting for the engine. Any competent dealer will have set it up for the climate, altitude and riding area in which it was purchased, and then it is likely that it has been rejetted any number of times since as riding conditions varied.

From your other post I see you are going to clean the carb, just order your new carb float kit from Beartooth (up in the header of this page) and have them send you both a jetting chart and the typical jets you will need in your area. Also, pick up a couple of new spark plugs. Then go to How you can read spark plugs and select them - by Gordon Jennings. and follow the instructions on how to read your plug to properly jet your machine. There is another site Spark plug reading that provides color photos of spark plugs for four strokes, the color you want is the same for both two and four strokes, but read the first site for the details on the two stroke.

What you will find is that ideal jetting will change from season to season, and if you ride in mountains where you change altitude you will need to take that into account.

On a two stroke, jetting for the best engine rpm and power is not always what you want to do, as that tends to run them lean and can lead to burning down the piston. So, pay attention to the jet chart and dealer's recommendation.
