How do I balance the carbs on my 1996 Kawa ZX6R

To balance the carbs you will need sychronizing gauges and a petrol supply to run the engine while you adjust the carbs into balance I'v added a youtube video to give you an idea of how to go about this task

I am just about to buy a second hand 2006 KLE500. It has 11000 kms on the clock. I am wondering if being a discontinued series and being a 500 makes it difficult or expensive to get any work done...

Hi, Anonymous the answer to these questions are way above my pay grade for this situation, I would call or visit my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry.

My honda cbr 600 wont start and keeps backfireing

Check your plugs. If all four are sparking then your carbs are out of sync. They will need to be re-balanced.

If you are capabable in doing this job your self, you will need a screwdriver that fits your adjuster screws and a CarbTune Carb balancer.
Remove your tank and airbox.
You should see the flaps inside your carbs. These should open when you move your throttle.
Start on the outside carbs to get them balanced with the 2 centre ones.
To start, unscrew the adjusters all the way out. then screw them in until the 2 outer carbs move at the same time as the inner 2 carbs
Once this is done then adjust the centre balancer to syncronise the 2 left hand carbs to the 2 right hand carbs.
Now if you have done this correctly, all four carbs should open at the exact same time.
If you have a Carbtune balancer, remove the plugs from the top of your inlet manifold and plug in the hoses from the carbtune balancer.
Start the engine and adjust the screws until the weights inside the Carbtune balancer all read the same.
Once done, remove the balancer, replace the plugs into the inlet manifold, refit the airbox and tank and it should run so much better.

If your not 100% confident to unertake this job yourself, take the bike to your local dealer and ask to have the carbs balanced.

My suzuki katana some body move the screws in the carburators

hi,this might help,it is very difficult to get the adjustments right without a set of carb balance gauges,the adjustments are very small and critical to the running of the bike,borrow or buy a set of gauges,hook up the gauges,balance the left two cylinders together so they are both running exactly the same,then do the two right cylinders and get them both running the same,then match the two sets  together using the balance screw between no2 and no3 cylinders,a general rule of thumb to get a startng point is to wind the mixture screws in untill they stop,then back them out about 1.5 turns,do the same to all four screws before you start trying to balance the carbs,make sure the bike is sitting vertical or on the centre stand because if it is not it will effect the balance of the carbs and also make sure you have a good airflow over the front of the motor for cooling as it will take half to three quarter of an hour to get the balance right...most bikes need the carbs rebalanced on a regular basis because when the parts of the carbs start to wear the balance will change,a good set of carb balance gauges is a worthwhile investment...hope this helps

Hi i have a vfr 750 1997 it has a clunking noise but when you pull the clutch in it stops ive been told its the clutch basket or the carbs want balancing is this serious?

Carbs out of balance will cause the clutch to judder, but clutch basket wear is common and is the remedy if you dont get rid after carb balance. most just live with it! unless it is really noisey

Four wheeler back fires

If the motor has two carbs then balance the carbs. Balancing the carbs basically means being certain the slides on both carbs open up simultaneously. If one carb opens sooner than the other then it 'drives' the other carb and can cause the backfire. Other things can can cause a backfire but lets start here first.

Carb balance

As far as carb balancing is concerned it is no where near as important as it is on a multi carb multi cylinder engine as all the mix from both our carbs goes into the same cylinder at the end of its journey. The main form of balancing carbs on our bikes is to ensure that they both have the same jets and needles fitted that the needle clip position and air screw adjustement are also the same and that the linkages are set and adjusted propery (and of course no air leaks or blocked jets on either ,
