I looked through search but all the topics turned up with stuff way worse than mine. Anyway, since I got my 02 in May, it has had a slight carb issue. The third cylinder from the left (dont know how they are technically numbered) doesn't always fire, but only at low rpm's.
I think its the carb because once its warm and above like 5000 rpm, there is no lack of power and its firing on all 4. If you heat gun the header after a normal ride, the thrid pipe is around 20 degrees lower than the rest.
If I pour a bunch of Gumout in the tank and let it sit overnight, it clears up for the rest of the tank, after that its back. Any thoughts?
Yeah I am very familiar with carbs, on cars that is. I could go through a holley and rebuild it, jet it, adjust it, and put it back on my car in like an hour. Bikes are still new to me. I want to bring it to a shop, but they will rape me on the price. Id rather get some kick ass suggestions then do it myself. I'm not worried about screwing them up, just wasting time and not solving the problem.
bikes are easier than cars to work on... go over to R6 messages.net they have a how to on sync carbs..
