Before you strip down the carbs, which takes ages, try some redex neat in the petrol mix, give it a blast as this is the quickest and easiest method I know.

You are going to have to open up the carbs and look at your jets screws. take a thin wire poke it through and blow it out.. replace and enjoy the like new feeling ride.

Zx6r running problems


Lest adjusting the idle adjustment screw on the carb, turn the bike on and slowly turn the idle speed up so it doesn't die out on you, if that doesn't work try taking the carb off and cleaning it with carb cleaner

Hi Charles Gregory
Before you remove or try to adjust your low and high speed jets you should always count the number of turns it takes to lightly seat the idle mixture screw and high speed needle adjusting screws.
Be sure to write the number of turns down on a piece of paper so you will know how many turns from the seated position to open the jets when you go to reinstall them, or if you remove them for cleaning or replacement.
If you have aready tried to adjust them then the adjustments below should get it running for you for final adjustment when warm.
Normally you will adjust your idle jet to 1/2-3/4 turn open from the bottom seated position.
Then you will re-adjust the low speed of the engine when the engine is warm by turning the idle screw in or out till the engine runs smoothly at idle speed, around 1200 RPM.
The high speed jet is adjusted to 1 1/2- 1 3/4 open from the bottom seated position, after the engine is warm.
Then re-adjusted by turning the High Speed jet adjustment screw in or out till the motor runs smoothly at high speed.
Alway use the "lightly seated" method if you have not changed the screw settings.
Please take time to rate me
