Hi ....... Have a look down near the sidestand, there's a small micro switch ............ spray/soak it with WD40 and see it your problem improves. It's there to stop you driving off with the sidestand down, debris gets into it and causes problems.

I''m doing carburetor maintenance and freeing up the intake and exhaust on my ''93 Kawasaki ZR1100-A2. The bike came with 2 #98 and 2 #100 main jets. If I install 4 #102 jets will the jet needles require...

Since the jet increase is minimal you might not need to do anything,but first I would suggest riding for a few miles at reasonably high revs(close to full throttle),kill the motor and pull in the clutch,then remove at least one of your plugs(all four would be best) to check the colour.

If burning a nice light brown then your main jets are OK ,or if darker then you may have to revert back to your old jets.If the bike is accelerating smoothly, then your needles are OK.If you are getting a flat spot you need to raise the needles or rough mid-range,lower the needles, but since you have the carbs apart, just check needles for wear and replace if ness.

If you are experiencing either of these in mid-range ,even after raising/lowering the needles you might have to fit other needles(DYNOJET perhaps)to increase or decrease the fuel as necessary.

Hope this helps, and please leave fair comment if it does

Thank you

Need to know fork fluid amount for 93 zr1100

The correct way is to remove the tops of the forks and pull out the springs,then fully compress the fork legs and fill them to 150mm or 6inches from the top. Refit springs and tops and you are ready to ride.

Poor throttle response below 4,000 revs.

The carbs need to be re-tuned for the exhaust. It doesn't seem like like it needs to be rejetted just idle mixtures adjusted. this would be something that a mechanic should do because there are four carbs and they need to be syncronized with each other

749S exhaust poll: Remus or Mivv Exhaust system?

One thing to consider is that the remus importer, maxmoto, seem like really good guys and I know they have good customer service. I have the remus, I didn't buy it from him, but he really helped me out, and gave me a great deal on a couple things I needed.
