So don't mount it on the bonnet as a hood ornament?

That coil would look so much better if you mounted where you couldn’t see it!  ;D

More research.  Found where Calver had some needle profiles for twin hs4s on the Kent series cams along with head work and moderate compression motors for the street.  K&N filters ect...  He list the AAM needle and an AAA needle, both on my radar as far as matching what I had created.  The AAM was more suited for a 286 cam while the AAA a 276.  The needle he chose for the 256/266 cam was very lean up top and didn't seem to be in the ballpark at all.  I tossed in the AAA needle for good measure to see how it does.

Took the dogs to the park today, while Rose walked the boys I cruised around on my new Mini bike - it rides easily, steers well and now that I've folded it up and unfolded it a few times it's very easy. It will be perfect for cruising around at car shows or in the pit at the races.

Closest match is ADX.  WOT station slightly richer, low speeds slighter richer, but 40-80mph stations progressively rich.  This being AAK pre filed vs ADX.  I really had to file a ton in the 70-80 range.

Edit: changed it up and went with AAM after dissecting the needle book.  Ironically 7ent list it for a kent 266 cam.

Did a full days worth of needle and mixture fiddling.  With the carb and port work I had to refile a lot.  After getting it in the ballpark I took my calipers and measured out each station and found a needle closest to what I've created.  Wouldn't be a big deal on a single carb but having twins and the amount of needle adjustments I made, probably best to get new for consistency.
