    Before you found the fix, I read your posts and it sounded like you thought the bike was running very rich. I thought the opposite, that the problem you described was actually momentary fuel...

    Glad you have it running well. The nylon ring, with or without the thinner spacer on some carbs, have caused assembly issues with several models. If they are installed in reverse or not installed at...

    To each their own. My '07 ZX14 in Diablo Black will always be my dream bike. The term "Pride of ownership" didn't even scratch the surface.

    If you're buying new o-rings for the fuel T and fuel tubes between carbs 1 and 2, and 3 and 4, for VM26 carbs, I assume your fuel tubes are not the rubber coated versions? If you have the tubes that...

    My delivery from Z1 was sooner than expected, about 5 days I think.
    I do have an update on my float bowl gaskets. After about a month and about 50 miles, I noticed a small amount of leakage from 2...

    I also had weeping bowl gaskets and made a topic recently. My fix was the Z1 gaskets. They're softer and more pliable. I didn't use any grease. I can see where a light coat of bearing grease could...

    Don't synch the carbs at "mid-throttle". There's no benefit as far as tuning. You can easily over-heat the bike too.
    Synch at about 2,000 rpm's unless your manual says otherwise. Adjust the rpm's by...

    Interesting that a manufacturer would voluntarily reduce a bikes power and allow a competitor to take the "fastest bike" crown. I wonder if the 5HP was the difference or if Suzuki had it locked up...

    So you've eliminated a problem throttle cable as a possibility. You exercise the rack, it appears to move freely but the bike still sometimes hangs up at 4,000 rpm's.
    At 4,000 rpm's you should be...

    Tom, I hope your bike runs well in the end. As for your broken exhaust stud, you said just a little is sticking out? What about spraying some penetrating oil on it, a couple of sharp hits to possibly...

    I think you've spent too much time on that little island. Forgetting how to talk to people without getting all bent out of shape is one of the signs.
    Your "air correctors" are nothing but...

    Using the choke, on a fully warmed up/hot engine, will lower the rpm's or stall the engine, depending on how much choke is used. It's normal.

    Your hanging idle issue may be related to the timing advance. Many here have had the same issue with a rotor slipping or other part not operating as it should.
    I'm not familiar with your model but...

    No issue from my side, Tom. I think zed feels the same.:)
    Difference of opinions and sharing knowledge/experience is why forums exist.
    Is there enough of the stud to grab with a tool?

    zed, I certainly wasn't trying to school you on any part of carburetion. I make a comment with the understanding that other members may be reading/interested.
    I'm convinced your way is not the right...

    By the way, Tom, check the fuel "T" and fuel connector tubes for leakage. Generally, you check before mounting by adding enough fuel. Since you already mounted them just be sure there are no leaks....

    zed, I understand the operation of an air jet. I understand what you're saying about your air corrector. Unfortunately, your corrector is nothing more than a restrictor.
    In my previous post, I...

    I'm just giving Tom the same advice that I've used and a lot of others here have used over the years.
    If the bike is otherwise properly tuned, I've never had issues of "flat spots" or "low speed...

    The drill bit and screw have been addressed. They don't apply in your case. Your jet needle pictured is from DJ. DJ needles in your kit have 6 e-clip grooves. Factory jet needles have only 5.

    Ed, thanks again for mentioning the Z1 bowl gaskets being softer than the Suzuki's.:D If not for that, I would've bought some more Suzuki gaskets and slapped on the sealant. I'm glad I didn't have to...

    Turns out you were right. When I got the bowl off I saw what looked like a spring in the hole. The threads just spun out in one piece.
    My whole life, every time I've stripped a fastener it happened...

    I finished the carb work. I'm really happy to say the carbs aren't leaking at all.:)
