I wouldn't worry about the carby settings.
Just ride the bike normally without lugging it on hills, revving won't hurt it.
Make sure that the bloke that bores it gives it enough clearance.

Thanks Trev. The GPM pistons spec is 3 to 3.5thou piston to bore clearance. Is this too little?

That would be for split skirt pistons Morris. I agree with Trev, 4 - 4 1/2 thou is good.
Cheers
