Question about 2004 Bimota 666 L.E.

1 Answer

Revs issues Well now that it is time to sell this piece I get some more problems with it. If you rev the bike a little the revs will just run away. Here's the deal: I have not yet synched the carbs. Timing is dead on and even a little retarde will still run away with the revs With the stock jets the bike just bogs at about 7000 rpms thats why I'm running the slighly smaller ones. So are the revs running because: To lean a mixture?If so then it will run like crumb at top end Incorrect timing? Although it is right on at the timing marks

Could something be wrong? Incorrect point gap? Does this make the revs run away? Carb syncronization? Would this make that big of a difference would I have to change the jets to the bigger one? i am confused! you will have to explain better. if you mean that the engine is reving without the throttle. then forget the whole ignition system for now. it must be getting air/fuel to rev. so check for sticking throttle/linkage or for a vacum leak. when its reving on its own grab the carb linkage and try to return it back. also while its running take the airbox off and shine a light in there and see how far open the throttle plate (s) is.,,

I have a Kawasaki Ninja, ZX6r, 1997 F3. The bike starts great and rev's great when standing. At high rev's its as sweet as a nut. The problem seems to be when riding the bike and the revs are below 4,000....


There are adjustments on carbs for low speed air intake (air mixture screw)find out factory settings and reset that mixture.Sounds to me like those adjustments are out of sink.If so the bike will run very bad from idle to about 1/4 throttle then run great from there up to full throttle.this definitly sounds like carb problem.

Engine misfires around 5000 revs and sometimes


Give your bike a tune up, Plugs , Air filter, clean the carbs. Do these jobs one at a time till the problem goes away, Dirty fuel from leaving the bike unused can also give grief.
Happy hunting

When 1973 enduro is in higher gear the bike revs


Yes, it does sound like a clutch, but make sure you have a little free play in the clutch lever. Age will make the clutch plates deteriorate.
You need to remove the right side engine cover to get at it. Take your time and note where all of the pieces are. Pre-soak the new clutch plates (The ones with fiber on them) in oil before you install them.

Loss of power pulling away in first gear. have to rev nuts off it. any ideas?


Howdy: It sounds like the 1/3 of the needle jet is not working . Could be clogged. If the bike run good in 3/4 to full throttle then for syre it's the jet. Does it idle? Was the bike not ridden for a long peroid? Also check the input air! Need a little more info. Did this problem start all at once or slowly get worse? Doug

Carburetor problem


You must make sure the floats still float and they are set exactly at the factory called for setting.They sound a little low. Also make sure you have no dirt in the needle and seat area. Take a can of carb cleaner and blast it through all fuel passage ways and little holes.Then the same pass. and holes should be blown through with compressed air.
I hope this helps you.

Rough running kawasaki


you need to let it warm up before beating on it. inline 4s are always cranky when cold. another issue could be dirty carbs and clogged carb jets causeing it to run extreemly lean, rev high and die out. pulling 4 carbs isnt "fun" but you could do it in an afternoon.
