I race my old 87 cbr f1 and i thought about rejetting but i found out that by just turning the factory set pilot screw another quarter turn i believe counter clockwise made a hell of a difference. usually these are capped off so people cant mess with the settings, so i just took out my carb bank and took off the bowls and reset them and where i race is 2200 feet higher than where i live and boy that made a big difference and especially when i installed a Barnet racing clutch and installed stiffer springs..actually i only purchased the friction plates soaked them in oil over night.. the old ones were burnt from all my quick starts off the line and it caused me to accidentally go way over the red line two notches coming down the straight away at willow springs. After the clutch/spring change and pilot adjustment, i was always put on pole position, even though i didnt deserve it, because when the green flag went down i was usually in the third or fourth row back and would just sling shot all the way through everyone to the front everytime, but since its and old bike and doesnt have the top end, the other bikes eventually catch up in the straight aways. i have a sonicore exhaust and its basically a straight pipe, the baffle is shot and needs replacing but there is absolutely no flow restriction through this engine. I've even beat my friends 1000 gxsr off the line and after doing it all day he said...boy you'd make an excellant dragstrip racer. This bike is awesome! the only bike that i've never beatin off the line was an R-1, he had me by a bike lenght. so if you want to go fast adjust pilot screws, install the best exhaust system they make, and install a racing clutch/springs...when you first install a racing clutch it"ll want to creep..you'll know what im talking about if you decide to do this...this is perfectly normal...the bikes clutch along with the stiffer springs is like trying to keep a bit bull from trying to attack someone it s ready to go!

    oh and i forgot to mention that after i made the adjustments to the carbs i had it dyno'd at the track only 73 hp i was hoping for at least 85hp and the guy said your fuel air mixture is perfect all the way to 10k then he said your bike loses a lot of power probably due to age and the valves needing adjustment. yes i"ve never had the valves adjusted and i probably should do that, since this bike has almost 50k on it.

Does any exhaust fit a yamaha thundercat providing I have the correct link pipe?


You could fit any exhaust, But exhausts are designed for specific engines for a reason. They work best when they are used on the correct engine. Lots of things are taken into account when designing an exhaust, such as capacity, rev range and number of cylinders. An exhaust from a Honda SS50 wouldn't work on a Fireblade, so buy the correct one for your bike, it will be worth it.

Power Loss at around 3000 rpm


are the carbs balanced correctly and are you sure that all of the jets are clean. if not try it, it might work. sluggish throttle response is normally to do with the carbs.

One thing to consider is that the remus importer, maxmoto, seem like really good guys and I know they have good customer service. I have the remus, I didn't buy it from him, but he really helped me out, and gave me a great deal on a couple things I needed.
