block catagorizing the metering circuits is not really representative of accual contribution. the main starts contributing as soon as the throttle opens. its major effects are seen above 1/2 throttle. all circuits, pilot, needle and main contribute all the time. but the % of effectiveness is different per throttle position.
bacially speaking the pilot is idle to 1/8th throttle, needle and needle jet are 1/8 to 3/4 and main jet is 1/2 to full open. this page http://www.lafishmag.com/CarbTuning.html will give you a pictoral idea. the Polaris manual has a very good section on tuning with very good descriptions and pictures. you can also look up Mikuni tuning on the web, lots out there.

exactly. the fuel first flows thru MJ B4 it sees the NJ so a change in MJ may affect intermediate jetting(ever so slightly). now i think the idle is on its own circuitry with its own pilot(fuel) jet and air screw. VL series may be opposite on idle.
