thats true I was scared the first time now it should be easy. Did you plug off the carb coolant lines? I was thinking of doing that. Do you clean around the carbs before you remove them? just wondering

Here's what I've got: 02 r6
OEM air filter
FactoryPro spec custom V stax
Two Bros slip on (chopped)
Dyno Jet stage 1 kit, I think... (needles have 6 slots)
Clips on 3rd slot. 2 washers on top
Mains jets: 142's on 1 and 2
140's on 2 and 3
Pilots are 35's (WTF? Non Cali model???)
Mix screws are 2.75 turns out
200ft above sea level

I just cleaned carbs and it runs good and smooth through the whole RPM range with these new settings. Put a new set of plugs in too. I want to get some #40 pilots if it will make it run even better but I have no complaints as of now.
I have this adjustable timing advancer I want to install but need a second opinion on the way it should be set. I think I need to turn the outside piece clockwise to get the advance 3 degrees. The way it's set in the pic I believe to be advanced. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks

advancer won't do you any good, you should probably just sell it to me..

How is your idle? I still have a bouncy idle on mine and can't figure it out.

If I had to guess, the big line in the middle is stock and you can go either +2 or -2 with the marks. I got lucky and scored a +4 Factory Pro awhile ago and what a difference that thing made. Best $50 bolt on I've bought for this thing.

How is your idle? I still have a bouncy idle on mine and can't figure it out.

Yea it's not for sale and it idles smooth. But when I rev it and let go it hangs around 3k for a couple of seconds before slowly dropping to idle..


Back on my advancer, there's only 2 marks for advance or retard but it will slide over to where a 3rd mark should be. Are the marks to the left of the big "stock" mark for advance or retard?

Re: 99-02 guys, post your carb settings/mods/elevation

I have no idea which way is advance. I have to change my timing cover with a Woodcraft one some time this week. If I can find my factory advancer, I'll hold it up to the FP one and I can tell from there which way is advance. Hopefully I can find the old one.

Hanging up on the idle means it is lean, try 3-3.5 turns out on the screws.

DJ is the only jet kit with jets that small and 6 clip positions. I've heard it is all but useless on these bikes. Ivans or Factory Pro is what everyone has used for the most part since these bikes were made.

Re: 99-02 guys, post your carb settings/mods/elevation

Ok so i have never messed with carbs... i work on fuel injected cars all day as im a auto tech. :P so i figured id give jetting my carbs a shot. I have no idea what my elevation is, havent searched it yet. i live in waterloo IA and i am looking to either just buy seperate jets or buy a factory pro kit. What do you guys recommend? And also if i dont get the kit do i just shim the needles? Any help would be appreciated!!! Thanks

Ok , since I have adjustable needles could I just copy your jet sizes and be better than the DJ setup? We have about the same engine mods. Or are the FP needles different than the DJ other than the notches?
