Hi, ive got a 1999 g2 kawasaki zx6r been sat for 6 months+. ive changed plugs,battery, petral and pilet jets becoz to blocked, so put like for like back in. it only starts of bump and backfires realy bad...

Have a professional carb service and valves adjustment done.
Just replacing the idle jets will not clean the entire idle circuit. Mixture screws need to be removed, circuit needs to be cleaned out, re-installed,and properly adjusted for idle mixture.
If backfire continues valves need adjusting. Best to do both at same time to save on labor.

I have a stock 1989 600xr. I have noticed tha it has a flat spot in the carberation from off idle to full throttle. If I put the choke on this goes away. Temp is around 80 and alltitude is 4000 feet. I...

They often had a flat spot from new, once the restricters were removed.
and there was a performance jet kit at the time.
Stock would mean it has a very restrictive end cap in the muffler, it may not still be there after 20 years, most were removed in the first few days.

you could try raising the needle a notch or two, then maybe a larger main jet.

Make sure it has a good air cleaner first.
Take notes about changes made and improvements.
adjust one thing at a time
dyno jet will have a kit I imagine.

Timing and carby tuning on a 900 ducati

Check the timing by removing the covers and bringing the engine around by hand to the marks at the top of the cams, then peek through the glass, it should be on it's mark. Or better yet, it has to be on it's mark. The carbs have no adj, except for the amount of air going in. What happened to the bike to make it change? Move to a different elevation? Change air filter? Change exhaust? In order to change the way it runs, you will need to jet it. Does it have Mikunis? Get a kit from Dyno-tune, they work great, and they are adj. You can find them on Ebay, I tried the factory setting jets, didn't work, got the dyno-tune kit, worked great. And, depending on the milage, when were the valves done last? That could be the problem right there.

My 1986 gsxr 1100 has a stage 3 jet kit with k&n filter on each carb it keeps messing up the #1 spark plug after i stop riding it for the day. have to replace eveytime i ride.

if its fouling out then you need to move the needle down or use a smaller jet. Stage 3 are a full rich adjustment. Maybe fo to stage 2,

I lost 40 miles to the tank when I put a stage 2 in my 1100 sabre. Regained half that when I adjusted the needle and came down one number on the jets.

No low end response and cam (andrews n4) will not kick in until 4000rpm. Cv carb with dyno jet kit installed. Slow jet is 42, 170main and eclip is on 3rd groove.

look at new spark plug for colour after running 1/3 thottle

if clean or carbon

i susspect you have spark curve issues (timing) if changed the orginale cam shafts profiles

97 srad no power under 4000 rpm in, in first gear acceleration

If you have installed the Dynojet kit's carburetor needles take them off and use the stock ones.
Dynojet's needles are for track use only and the don't work properly under 4000rpm.

How do u set the carb on a 86 mazda sl auto

the flat spot and hard starting is caused from a faulty accelrator pump or a blocked discharge jet in the pump circuit i would be putting a kit in the carby to improve mpg

the only adjustments on the carby is idle speed and idle mixture which dont affect cars mpg
