Really! I knew nothing about R* carbs, and tore into my first one with some trepidation, even though I consider myself to be mechanical.
That one turned out just fine, and I've done a couple of others since, and they all worked just as they should afterward.
Buy a jet kit, follow the directions with it, and it should work out just fine for you. The hardest part, if the bowl hasn't been off before, will be to get the factory fasteners off... you'll likely need to replace them, like I did, but it's worth the effort and experience for all that you'll learn!
And, the satisfaction of having done it for yourself on the cheap, and gotten good results is... priceless!
