If it is burning too rich...do I bend up Or Down...? and thank-you so much for your reply


Hi, John do not bend set the float level to book specifications in your service manual if you have changed your fuel delivery system, air filter size or flow rate, mufflers or exhaust system your carburetors need re-tuning 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. 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.

How to restart after running out of fuel oil


Some cars need to have the fuel pump breaker or fuse replaced or reset when the car is completely out of gas. Call a dealer or repair garage or look it up online, and ask for service manager and ask how to do this. Most are helpful.

How would you return to factory settings?


if you are talking about the fuel injection system after installing an exhaust system and fuel management computer its easy. Install all the stock components and remove the fuel management computer. The fuel management computer plugs get plugged back into the fuel injector, throttle body sensor, and factory CDI

have found this press release hope it reassures you

TSB 06-06-05-001C

"Some customers may comment in a change in the exhaust note or tone when an Active Fuel Management System equipped engine is in 3 or 4 cylinder mode. Some drivers may also notice a very slight vibration in either the accelerator pedal, floor pan, and/or the steering wheel. This is a normal condition for Active Fuel Management System equipped vehicles and no repairs should be attempted."



Customer Information on Active Fuel Management

When the Active Fuel Management System is enabled, physical changes take place within the engine that allow it to run as a 3 or 4 cylinder motor with accompanying additional fuel savings. The change in exhaust tone is expected as all sound from the exhaust is the result of combustion in the engine. The ability to perceive these changes in sound are kept to very minimal levels as the Active Fuel Management System is only activated during a steady state/near steady state driving or during coast down. In both of these situations, the load on the engine is minimal and general exhaust volume (sound) is low. You may give a copy of this bulletin to your customer

Fuel management system


Stock ecu and injectors should be fine for normal use.

Is there a reason why you need bigger injectors?
Are you going turbocharging or supercharging it?
If so then you might consider AEM FIC or SMT-6 or Megasquirt.
And depending on you goals;
290cc sontata injectors for about 4psi ~200-240 hp
440cc Blue WRX injectors for about 8+ psi for ~200-300 hp

EGR Valve


An engine surge is usually caused by a fuel system management or drivetrain failure. The fuel management system utilizes sensors that monitor emission output and engine performance are communicating with the main ECM (Engine Control Module) controlling fuel mixture, timing and emission management systems. While the engine is surging the ECM is "hunting" by adjusting the fuel mixture and timing. These adjustment are made by the ECM in a isolating manner as the ECM tries to satisfy its coordinates.
These coordinates are not satisfied because of a system malfunction.
