jetting a stock carb

Recommended Posts

hows it going guy, just joined the forum after lurking for a few weeks. just traded a 2012 cbr 1k for a 09 sm yesterday (i know call me crazy)

i guess the bikes previous owner faulted on the loan and the dealer took it back. its got a few mods done to it but i have a question about one in particular. my bike has a yoshi rs-4 (dual pipes) with 3x3 mod. now i plan on ditching this exhaust this winter when i start getting into some engine work/carb upgrade. right now it runs pretty friggin lean, pops like crazy on decel and sometimes in between shifts, even starts cold without choke lol, sooooo my question is i want to tune the bike close to a good a/f ratio while i ride for the next few months so i was wondering if i can do this without buying the 80 dollar jd jet kit as i plan on getting rid of this carb this winter and i feel this will be a waste of money.

Welcome aboard M8, lets see some pics, imo dont spend the 80 and just do the FCR now, since you're gonna get it anyway.

You should be able to adjust the a/f screw the carbs a tuned lean from factory for emissions. I had a gsxr 750 sold last year and bought 13 Dr SM in may. MRD/ SSW, 3x3, JD jet kit and k &n .

If the 3x3 has been done there is a chance a jet kit has already been fitted....Have a look at the needle to see if it has multi clip positions for adjustment,note if it has any coloured markings ....

Also check main jet and pilot jet size...

It does have a mikuni carb fitted..?
