Yes, you will need to bump the main a few sizes up, then go ride and test and see how it feels.

remember, these machines need a certain balance of gas and air, if there is not enough gas in the mix, they are called lean, if there is too much gas, they are called rich.

the jets are what effect how much gas is put into the engine.

ANY time you change something on the quad that effects how much gas or air it uses, you need to consider whether the jets are still ok, and re-jet if needed.

a new air filter will let more air in, but not gas...
a new exhaust will let both air and gas through faster, and will require more gas for the mix.
etc etc... so the stock bike is lean, if you change anything, it will need to be adjusted.

Wow a 40 pilot and 160 main??? seems very thin with that much motor. I am running a 48 pilot and a 180 main on a DFR build that has a FCI intake, Venom exhaust, and 12.5 slug and I am slightly rich. I would take a 42, 45 pilot and a 158, 162, and 165 mains with you, and just let it be for now. If it seems off, rejet while up there.
