I have a 2000 r1. I was just curious if anyone knew how to put in a jet kit and air filter. I could reply with the kind of kit and filter. Im new to working on bikes myself and new to this site but hopefully ill stay. Thank you for your time -Jason
Lo Jason. No direct experience on 2000 R1, only later ones but this is what i know.
Prepare a nice, clean area first for stripping carbs down and 4 different containers for each individual carbs components.
Switch fuel-tap to OFF.
You'll need to remove the rider's seat, undo the front tank mounting bolt then prop the tank up (it pivots on the rear-bolt). Hopefully youll then have enough room to split then remove the airbox. If not you'll have to disconnect fuel pipes, overflow pipes and any electrical connections and remove the tank complete (having removed the rear pivot-bolt)
Disconnect the throttle cables at the throttle-grip end, remove the choke-cable from the carbs, loosen the inlet-clamps (between carbs and head), take the fuel-pipe that feeds the carbs off at the pump end. Remove the whole bank of carbs, may take a bit of rocking back and forth (the carbs, not you).
Trying to keep the carbs roughly in the same plane as they were on the bike undo (one at a time) the drain screws at the bottom of the float-bowls to drain each carb (catch the petrol in a dish/jar etc).
You'll now need to remove each float-bowl to get at the jets and most likely the carb-tops to lift out the diaphragm/slide/jet-needle assemblies.
Best leave it there, sorry it's a bit sketchy but you're best investing in a Haynes/Clymer/Yamaha manual to get specifics 'cos you'll need specs to set/check settings on the carbs aside from the info in the jet-kit.

Hi, Edwin lets break this down to a simple explanation. There are some riders that want better performance from their motorcycle without spending a "DRACHMA" these are mods that were implemented back in the Teradactal era and are still used to this day. Your engine is nothing more than a well-engineered air box, the more air/fuel it can suck in and push out the better the performance. The trick is keeping the air/fuel mixture perfectly balanced to the engine size and exhaust output. By drilling holes and leaving out the air filter more air can be sucked in and we all know what high winds can do to a forest fire, the same principle. I would venture to say that there may have been some carb re-jetting to accommodate the extra air so the bike wouldn't fall on its face, it's all about balance. When you put the new (no holes) air box and filter on you decreased the amount of air and flow getting to the combustion chamber but not the fuel volume, ergo you are running way to much fuel resulting in poor performance. I do applause you for wanting clean air it allows your engine to live longer. That being said you need to balance the air/fuel ratio by dropping down a couple of sizes on your main jet in order for the bike to perform acceptable with the newly installed parts. "CAUTION" measure the existing main jet with jet drills because some riders will drill out their stock main jet without changing the identifying number stamped on it or just start with a stock main jet designed for your bike. Once you get the bike to perform ok you can fine-tune it for maximum performance.

Changing to a K&N air filter changes the air/fuel mixture for your bike, and you're probably hitting an overly lean spot before things start to even out. For bikes still running carburetors, which I think you have, you can compensate for this by changing to a slightly larger idle jet. Your main jet is probably fine (it's kicking in after the lag); it's the crossover from idle to main jet that's causing the flat spot.
Talk to your dealership parts counter to get recommendations about jet settings. They may suggest, for example, to keep your existing idle jet and go with a different main jet. Expect to try a couple different setups to find one that works best for your bike and your riding style. I would highly recommend keeping your original jets, though, in case you ever go back to the stock air box.
In order for your motorcycle to run correctly you will have to put in larger main jets. Most jet kits also come with a set of needles that have a different taper from the stock needles. If you want the power band of your motorcycle to accelerate smoothly and get rid of the flat spot/hesitation when you apply throttle , you should spend the $100 and put in a jet kit.
general rule of thumb is to go up about 10 jet sizes,unfortunately it is a bit of trial and error,and you may have to swap out diferrent sizes to get the bike running right,(jets are quite cheap though)but first step about 10 sizes from standard,your local dealer should be able to tell you what jets are in it and supply replacements,if you change to a hgh flow aftermarket air filter you may have to change jet sizes again as changing the filter may effect the mixture ratio in the carbs,,hope this helps
