should i just carry along a 6mm flat wrench for jets and a wrench for the bowl covering the jet? is there a tool that has both or makes it easier for jetting on the go?

You plan to do mid ride jetting? I usually set aside time to work on the jetting and it's not a day we are out for a ride.

It all depends on just how much room you have between the carb and case. On my 250, a 17mm box-end will get the drain bolt out......then I can barely fit a 6mm socket with a little 1/4" drive wrench on the main. But there's no getting to the pilot without removing the throttle slide so I can swivel the carb to the side. Changing jets ranks right up there with cleaning air filters..........

I have a magnetic screwdriver with removable tips. The tips can be stored in the hollow handle. When the tip is removed, the screwdriver becomes a nutdriver for the main jet.

Good luck, Steve.
