Whether it is safe is for you to decide. Look at the plug color after you change jets. Run it for just a little and then check.

Brown is good
White is too lean and you'll burn up
Black/oily is too rich

There is a plug color guide somewhere on the net - it gets posted from time to time, if anyone remembers where, please post it for him

Recently I was asked to play in a golf tournament.

At first I said, "Naw, I haven't been playing that well."

Then they said to me, "Come on, it's for handicapped and blind kids."

Then I thought...

Chit, I could win this!

There should be a jetting chart on the clutch guard or in your manual. You should be OK jetting down a size though. Also, pull the jets and make sure they are the size that came on the sled stock and go from there.
