    I can check my SM later, but I'm pretty sure the rear? A little richer for the potentially hotter rear cylinder bank?

    Depends. It varied from year to year. If they are #92 and #95 mains and 30mm carbs, then the #95 go to the front and the #92 go to the rear.

    If the mains are #102 and #105 and the carbs 32mm, then in this case the larger were fitted to the rear bank. Don't ask me why..

    Larger main jets go in the rear, the V4s all run richer on the rear bank of cylinders to help with cooling !

    Thanks, gents. This is opposite to the V-2 in the NT650 Hawk, as the bigger jets go in front cylinder. :lemo:
