Keihin PWK Carb Talk

Recommended Posts

Im having a very hard time jetting the pwk carb DUAL vent; its hitting the powerband VERY sudden and not smoothly;

 

 

 

 

Whats the deal with the QUAD vent PWK? is there a main difference and is it worth $250 for a new QUAD vent PWK carb over the DUAL vent?

the quad vent is meant to prevent bogging after jumps, it has nothing to do with how the bike comes into the powerband. if youre not bogging after jumps now, then no, its not worth $250.

I havent jumped it yet to see but i guess that there is no performance differnces between the 2 other than the bogging?

there may be some performance differences, i dont know, i highly doubt it, but, like i said, the 2 extra vents are only for 1 purpose and thats to prevent bogging from the fuel plugging the vents after jumps.

Would i only notice the bogging after the "big" jumps?

 

 

 

Im at around 800 elevation with temps varying from 65-80; not sure on current jets but i have tried with slide # 6 and 7 which i cant tell which is better in what areas though; will report back with jets 

 

 

 

 

size is just standard 38 i beleive as i cant fit a 39 can i?
