Just bought and installed a HMF pipe on my Foreman, when i was sold the pipe, i asked about jetting. The salesman told me sometimes, and in some cases u do not. Then i asked how would i know if you need to? He said your bike will act like it is starving for gas and high rpms. Well its on and i have ran the [email protected] out of it, no backfiring loss of power or anything of that you think im safe, or am i hurting my bike? just wanted some second opions, thanks chris

Check the spark plug for the correct colour
Dumb question why don't you jet it? More power is always good.
Well i just dont want to start messing with jets and carb adjustments if i dont have to, especially on my atv, now my chevelle is a different story..
Come on you know you want to do it
You know, that is a good question. I was a firm believer in rejetting a machine; it seemed that DJ was right on and the machine always ran better. Until my 05 Ruby, I could never get the slight miss out of 1/8 I rejetted my 06 500ES. It starts better but I don't think top end is right. Seems like it takes to long to get revved out. I've rejetted all but one of my machines: Kodiak, Rincon, V-Twin (did not), 500i, 400i, Ruby and now my 500ES, I liked the outcome of all except the Ruby and 500ES. Maybe the new Honda's run better with the stock jet?
UPDATE: Raised one notch on clip and now everything seems to be right on the money!!! Better starting and better throttle response.
