A good way to tell if it is the jetting is that you will have a flat spot or sputter at low rpm

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.

I have A 1988 Virago 1100 With Cobra Mufflers and The Carbs Are Jetted with A cobra I stage Kit And The Fuel Air Mix Screws are new It Cranks And Runs But Black Smoke Is Comming out of the Pipes Whats


Sounds like you need to take it to a shop that kinda knows what they are doing. If they have problems they can call cobra themselves. As a shop the aftermarket companies are usually pretty good about helping out since most of their product is sold or installed in aftermarket shops. With that being said. I would start by dropping the clips up one notch and see how that works. By sliding it up one notch it should run a little leaner . If it's better but doesn't cure the problem then go up one more. If it does clear up the black smoke then there you go. Generally cobra will tell you in the directions what common jets to install. They even have a section for higher elevations as well. If not in the directions they usually do on their website. Hope this helps a little.

I have a yamaha xj650 maxim which was a project of mine and it will not idle below 2500 rpms. There have been many add ons though 4 to 1 exhaust free flow air filters clean carbs added stage 3 dyno jet kit...


I would recommend adjusting the idle screw on the carb. If it is not the idle adjustment, then check the choke as it may be sticking and that will cause the engine to idle at that rate.

I have 175 and 180 size jets in my carburetor on my 04 Sabre. Are these stock? My Dynojet stage 1 kit has 160, 165, 170, & 175...which are smaller...


It doesnt matter if the jets are stock or not it is a myth that the jets must be bigger when you put a stage one kit in. Remember stock jets are there for EPA standards and what size works to pass is what the manufactor will use. I have many times put smaller jets in a carb even on race bikes to get a better performance. I hope this helps.

Hi,just got a dynojet stage 1/3 kit for my 1980 honda cb650, it's on standard air box, but 4 into 1 exhaust, I take it I should use the stage one kit. Also I have no instructions can you help...


Intended for motorcycles with a stock engine using the stock airbox, air filter and stock pipe. Stage 1 kits are fully adjustable to allow the use of a well designed aftermarket pipes and stock replacement air filters like K&N. Stage 1 kits are designed to improve throttle response and driveability and in most cases power increases of approximately 5% throughout the entire power range can be achieved.


STAGE ONE INSTRUCTIONS
1. Remove the vacuum slide from the carbs. Remove the stock needles & spacers, noting the order of
assembly. Locate the slide lift holes (Fig. A), with the slide drill DD# 14 supplied, enlarge your slide lift
holes. The picture may not show your slide exactly, enlarge your slide lift hole or holes depending on your
model. Do not drill any new lift holes. Do not drill the needle hole.
2. Install Dynojet needles on groove #4, using all stock spacers. Install the Dynojet washers (2 per
needle) above the E-clip.
3. Remove the stock main jets and replace with the Dynojet main jets provided. If you are running with
stock exhaust, use the DJ110 main jets. With an aftermarket header or slip-on with high flowing baffles,
use the DJ116 main jets. Be sure that the jets you are changing are the main jets.
4. Locate the fuel mixture plug (Fig. B), if you see a screw head, proceed to adjusting procedure. With the
DD #5/32 drill bit provided, carefully drill thru the plugs. Note: the mixture screw is directly underneath this
plug, be ready to pull back on the drill the instant you break thru. Use screw provided to secure and
remove the plug. Carefully turn mixture screws clockwise until they seat, turn out 3 turns.

Murray 5/24 with 2 stage auger only runs at full rich or one "click" to left & also requires full throttle. I have cleaned spark plug. Problem is getting worse. Gas is fresh - regular without any oil...


Fuel Starvation - Float Bowl Carburetor
1) remove air filter assembly
*be cautious of tearing the mounting gasket. If it does tear, you HAVE to replace it. It is part of the priming system
2) remove the float bowl fastener. This is the main jet
3) carefully remove the float bowl, the rubber o-ring/gasket will not be able to be used if it is removed, you WILL have to replace it
4) using a spray 'carb cleaner'
spray up thru the center of the carburetor
spray and clean the main jet with cleaner and 'tag' wire
(tag wire is very thin, and can be used to clean the hole in the center of the main jet)
5) clean any debris from inside the bowl or carb body
6) re-install bowl and center bolt, air filter assembly

*if you need gaskets, your local lawn & garden dealer can supply. The kit is cheaper than individual gaskets, and all the parts needed to finish the above repair are in the kit.

Briggs & Stratton 6.75 lawnmower. Won't start.


1) Determined that there is spark?
2) Have you used a type of spark tester?
3) What is the condition of the plug. Brown or dark brown is OK. Black or silver is NOT Ok.
*If you do not have a spark tester,
a) remove the plug, and with it connected to the wire,
b) find a portion of metal around the cylinder that you can ground it on, and then pull the rope.
c) If the plug is black, you may see spark, but you should replace the plug.

*** PLEASE NOTE ; if there is excess fuel in the cylinder or on spark plug,
it can catch fire, so be carefull to cover the hole with a heavy rag so that any fuel
cannot be exposed to spark plug durning test !!!!
Get back with me on how this issue works out.

My suzuki 1986 gsxr wont start. a few weeks ago i was riding it and it was a little troublesome with the clutch shifting, now it just wont run. it wants to start but it wont. and when it try to start it,...


Hi there!
Too much gas mixture or there maybe plug problems. If it doesnt start, charge the battery and start the bike with new spark plugs. Replace the plugs, this usually works.
Let me know if this is any good. Other options:

1. THe spark plug cable
2. The ballast
3. The jets are clogged
4. Poor fuel quality.

I got a 1990 Suzuki GSX750F Katana, the problem is that when I pull the choke out and start it up it will idle, now if I take right off it rides great, but when I come to a stop or hold the clutch long...


It still sounds like it still running rich. If it doesn't have any performance mods like aftermarket exhaust it wont like the stage 3 kit. The stage 3 kit should be install if it has high performance exhaust and k&n pods instead of an airbox and filter. Or the floats may be stuck or improperly adjusted.
