CRF 230F Uncorking/Rejetting???

Bought an '06 CRF 230F cheap a while back which has baffle removed, spark arrester tube still in, air box insert still in place but Im unsure if it has been rejetted.
It runs well and I'm not after more power as it suits the riding I use it for - trails and mucking around with kids in dry 25 - 35degC temps at only a little above sea level.
Does this uncorked bike HAVE TO BE rejetted, air box insert removed etc to preserve the engine or not.
Hours of google, forum and YouTube searching has left me still unsure as there are so many different opinions out there (none seem to suit my situation) and many trying to turn this fun little trailbike into some kind of race horse it just ain't.

Pull carb and confirm specs , then u r sure ...

I would not get to excited about it ..

Very hard to kill this motor ,

U don't want more power , so let it be ...

I have the jetting kit , but never bothered fitting it , such a tractable engine .

Cheers mate, sounds good to me.
Will pull the carb out when I have time and check whats actually in there.
Just wanted to check there was no long term or short term damage being done to the motor either way🤙🏻🤙🏻.
