If its a carb. model yes just to keep it from running to lean and to give you the best performance. I have done this also on my 600 and came out with a gain of 5 whp, and a total of 7.5 after jetting but if you are planning on adding more to the bike in the near future like full exhaust, cams, or a slip-on exhaust then wait until you have add these until then, unless you are experiencing back fires, idling problems ect.

    http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/airfilter/... this link is about car air filters not motorcycles . there is a big difference in the motor's, compression, for one on a dyno chart on my race bike it shows that you will need jetting if it is a CARB. MODEL, if it is fuel injected you will not the computer will do it for you but could add an power commander to get best performance out of your machine.

2002 r6 carburetor set up


Hi, Driftmiester if your fuel system (gas tank, filters, fuel valve and carburetor) is contaminated with ethanol sludge, varnish, rust, dirt, water etc. or your bike has been sitting for months or years without running these components must be "PROPERLY" cleaned and reassembled "CORRECTLY" before any adjustments can be made. Tuning your carburetor is fairly simple once you understand the basic principals. You engine is a simple airbox sucking air in and blowing it out, it is finely tuned at the factory for maximum performance once you upset that delicate balance by changing air filters, camshafts or exhaust systems your performance may go down the and the engine may run poorly, you need to compensate the air-fuel mixture in the carburetor in order for the engine to run smoothly and at peak performance. If you are running multi carburetors you need to sync them first and make sure your air cleaner element is clean and dry for paper elements or lightly oiled for foam and meshed elements and properly installed. Here is how and where you compensate trouble: "TIP" if your engine "BOGS" your not getting enough fuel.
1. Closed to 1/8 throttle is managed by the air screw and pilot/slow jet.
2. 1/8 to 1/4 throttle is managed by the air-screw, pilot/slow jet, and throttle slide.
3. 1/4 to 1/2 throttle is managed by the throttle slide and jet needle.
4. 1/2 to 3/4 throttle is managed by the jet needle, needle jet, main jet, and air jet.
5. 3/4 to wide open throttle is managed by the main jet and air jet.
6. Wide open throttle is managed by the main jet.
If you are running lean, spark plug electrode color is white, engine runs hot and feels like it is starving for fuel you need to go up on the jet size or move the c-clip down one notch. If you are running rich, spark plug color is black or dark gray, engine runs cool, and bogs down when accelerating you need to go down on jet size or move the c-clip up one notch. When your carburetor is properly tuned for maximum performance your spark plug electrode will be a light tan color like coffee with cream. If you prefer fuel economy over performance you can go down on main jet sizes until a satisfactory level of lower performance is acceptable versus MPH, your spark plug color will be whiter and your engine will run warmer. These tuning adjustments will only make improvements if your intake and exhaust system have no air leaks or sealing issues and the entire electrical system is in proper working order and you have no mechanical issues.

Hi, A_stranahan if you have changed your fuel delivery system, air filter size or flow rate, mufflers or exhaust system your carburetors need retuning and if your fuel system (gas tank, filters, fuel valve and carburetor) is contaminated with ethanol sludge, varnish, rust, dirt, water etc. or your bike has been sitting for months or years without running these components must be "PROPERLY" cleaned and reassembled "CORRECTLY" before any adjustments can be made.

I have a 2003 r6, It has kindof a low idle and when I take off its boggy until I get to about 4000 rpms and then it's fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated


You may need your air filter changing ,try running without ,to see if this makes it run better .Sounds like you have either a Air problem or you carb jets need cleaning

This sounds like it could be any of 3 things. Ignition system, Air system & fuel system. Most commonly you'll find that the carburettors just need to be cleaned as this problem sounds related.

I would suggest thoroughly cleaning the carburettors as a good starting point. Along the way though I would also check the battery, the fuel tap and filter, the air filter and air ducts. As any of these components are blocked, will cause a similiar symptom. You should find it run better afterwards, if not I can help moving on to check the next possible cause. If you need help of how to get to the carbs and how to clean them, let me know.
