Your post with the 649A reference for the 78 Main jets, helped me figure out why I couldn't get the bike to run good over 4000 rpm, was running rich and fouling the plugs, took a float bowl off and I was running 100 main jets so removed the lid off the air box and its running perfect now! new jets are on order. Thanks Delta.
