EX500 carb question

Since I'm buying a stock 97 EX500, with factory exhaust, I would like to know what the factory jet settings are for the carb, and what I should rejet with to run a Muzzy exhaust on the bike. those factory cans just loook too bulky to me, gotta go.

I had a 95 ex500. It was nice I ended up running the 2 into 1 Muzzy full system with a jet kit. You can get the jet kit from muzzy as well I believe. I had it jetted and don't know what jets were used.

Also, you will loose the center stand when you switch the exhaust.
