fuel adjustment on 01 carbs
Hey guys, i know i have a similiar thread in the general discussion section, but im relatively knew to the forum and didnt realize that there was a whole section for fuel and exhaust stuff. plus i want to narrow down my question, at this point.
my issue was that my bike, 01 r6 (which is new to me, got it over the winter), would lose power like above 4k, when i opened the throttle, it would just bog down, i could only keep the throttle opened a little bit, other wise it would want to stall, like it wasnt getting any fuel when i opened up the throttle. so i took the carbs, out and disassembled them and cleaned, and oh my they definitely needed it! got a kit and replaced everything new in the carbs. also replaced spark plugs. tested coils according to the manual, they seemed fine. got the bike together and it ran great for about a mile, then it started having similiar issues, but not as bad as before, i can slowly get the rpms to climb if i babied the throttle.
im thinking the carbs are fine now, but probably the fuel needles need adjusted properly. does that sound like a good place to start? and my question is, these are the small flat head needle on the bottom of the carbs, correct? what do you recommend i set them to? how many turns out from seated?
thanks for the help!
