How to Determine Pilot Jet Size?

I dropped out the pilot jets today just to look at their size, thinking that since the PO had changed the MJ's to 128's he might also have increased the pilots at some time.
They came out easily and look clean, but I can't find anywhere, even under a glass, where they're size stamped.
I must be the first to run into this, because there wasn't any previous posts on this question.
Maybe there's a difference in 'size' that I should be looking for?

Thanks

Check the side of the jet closely, not the top. I have seen some that are very faint when stamped on the side.....

That's where I'd expect to see it, but the spring action likely rubbed it off by now. I'd have liked to know what they are, but it runs/idles well so guess I can forget about it.

Thanks

Spring action? My pilots aren't held in with springs. My air mixture screws are, but not my pilot jets. Are you sure you're looking at the pilot jets?

Your pilot jet should look like this:


2014 Scrambler: Arrow 2-1 high pipe. TTP Tune 4 with Breathe airbox cover no baffle.
Past rides:2008 T100, 1975 Honda CB400/4, 1989 Honda GB500, 1965 Honda CB450 Black Bomber, 1972 BSA A75 Rocket3

Wow.........Was I screwed up.....I think I even knew that but wasn't thinking when the screwdriver suddenly appeared in my hand.

Sunday suddenly seems like a good day to check my pilot jets.

Thanks much Chris -
