Why do you have to rejet a carb?

Do you have to rejet a carb if you change the exhaust?

Is rejetting a carb only for bikes? (All i can find is stuff to do with bikes)

Please help! :)

Lol sorry to bring up an old thread but as you "Googled" it and got the answer why not share? Hence why i was asking in the first place as i couldn't find anything to do with re-jetting a carb for a car. You don't have to be all weird about it.. fml

Re jetting is done to change the air fuel mixture ratio; simple. If the mixture is too lean, you need to increase the amount of fuel, at the point where it is too lean, and viceversa. this can be in the idle circuit, the transition circuit, or the main circuit. some carbs have even more circuits. You will need to figure out which circuit to change, and by how much. If you don't have the right equipment to test it, you will more than likely make it worse. Hope this answers your question.
