For sure a #45 pilot jet. Did you replace the intake seals when you had the carb off ??? Air leak at the seals equals lean AFR.

I did. I replaced everything that was replaceable.

Just an update on this: Thanks to Dave's kindness, I installed my .45 jet. I did no adjusting to anything else on the bike. I think the pilot screw is about 2 turns out right now. The bike is running much MUCH better now. I felt a slight hesitation in the throttle that was so minute that I questioned if it was just in my head or not. I rode the bike about 27 miles and it only cut out and spit back through the breather once (as opposed to once every 15-30 seconds before). I think that the hesitation and random spit back can be adjusted out. Any suggestions?

I had to put a 45 pilot in my wifes 1200 sportser also. It would take forever to warm up enough to take the gas properly when cold. Runs great now. Definately worked for me.

If it's a 1200 with high flow AC and pipes the #48 pilot works the best. Less chance of it plugging up when sitting over the layup months too !
