Re: Idle got the best of me!

Bro, sounds like your not firing on all four or one isn't getting good enough spark, or too much fuel in one cyl. What do your plugs look like?

I just went and took a vid of mine for comparison. Its idling about 12-1300 w/o the choke and it isn't fully warmed up (about 140ish). I'll link the vid when it's done uploading.

Definitely check the plugs. One might should look different then the rest judging by the way it sounds.

Here's the vid of mine (disregard the mess (projects are getting the best of me)):

When its fully warmed up it's even smoother.

Re: Idle got the best of me!

Your exhaust is so much quieter than mine, i like that sound, i think all the packing is gone on mine, i changed my plugs last February and they were all the same. I'm anxious to check them out tomorrow to see what i'm dealing with. I'm going to get inside the carbs as well and make sure everything looks good, and make sure my boots are still good shape. I think i will turn my mixtures screws to 2 turns. I think i will also try out the Dan Moto Exhaust, for the price it's hard to beat.

Its actually pretty loud when its rev'ed up. Packing is solid though. I found that out when I swapped the polished sleeve for the CF one. It has a real deep throaty sound at low revs, but screams like a mofo up high.

I don't really think the screw setting is the issue with yours. Sounds like something else. Maybe 1 of your float needles isn't closing all the way off and flooding out a cylinder...... then when you get on it you are able to burn the excess fuel so you don't really notice the issue. Plugs could tell the tale, and checking the temps of each cyl like Chief mentioned could pinpoint which one quicker.

I spent countless hours reading, re-reading, and reading again, the carb tuning information on FactoryPro's site. Took it one step at a time, and didn't give up until it was butter smooth. Its a real pain for sure, but the end result is worth every minute. I've heard more than one of these bikes sound like crap and remembered how bad mine ran when I got it 2 1/5 years ago.

Re: Idle got the best of me!

Here are the plugs, 1 through 4 (left to right)

The burn marks look even, but the white part in the center of the plug is whiter or plugs 3 & 4? I don't know what that means.
