99-02 guys, post your carb settings/mods/elevation
So I'm still having some issues with the jetting on my bike, and was wondering what everyone else is running. It's driving me nuts...
Yosh TRS slip-on
Ivan's jet kit
OEM & K&N air filters
Going from memory, but I think my needle clips are on the second notch, and my mixture screws are 2.75 turns out. Carbs have been synched, and I haven't checked my float levels.
Elevation is pretty close to sea level (Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada).
My issue is around 8000-9000 RPM, the bike feels like one or two cylinders miss temporarily. Power is reduced, and she sputters until she turns up a bit higher. I've tried running the mixture screws out to 3.25 turns out, and I've tried swapping my K&N filter for an OEM, and neither seems to fix the issue. If anything it currently runs better with the K&N, but not by a lot. It runs pretty well everywhere else in the RPM range, but 8-9K is a horrible spot to have a power loss.
Suggestions? Needles? Check the floats? Change the mixture? I haven't pulled the plugs recently, should I do so?
