Hey guys, well. I have another question for the genius' that is 3geez. I guess technically it's not a question more like a plea for help. I've got a little higher perfomance head and soon to be camshaft. I was talking to rich and he was explaining that the best buy for me in regards to a carb would either be DCOE's or bike carbs. Well, DCOE's I found were much to expensive and with the latest craze of ITB's I found the bike carbs to be really reasonable. So I bought some off of eGay. The item description read as follows
I'm not so worried about making a manifold for it to fit or any of that. I'm more worried b/c I have no idea/knowledge/experience tuning these carbs much less any carbs. So I'm asking anyone with knowledge or hotlinks to hand 'em here I would assume that if I was able to get a basic setting for one cylinder then all the other cylinders would be rather close to that setting/tune. I've read a couple guides on basic bike carb tuning but, they're really above my head. Which I would assume that this is identical to that[bike tuning] except I'm tunning 4 instead of just 1 or 2. Also, many of them base their tuning on reading plugs and listening to the engine. I unfortunately don't have an ear or eye for this b/c of the previous stated lack of experience so I didn't know if the best thing for me to do is just get a wideband O2 sensor and tune it via that way just like if I was tuning an ecu. So basically to recap that jumbled mess of sentences I'm just asking for help tuning these bike carbs to suit the accord.Complete carburetor set off of a 1992 Kawasaki Ninja ZX 600D (ZX-6D) with factory velocity stacks. Never been jetted or modified in any way, so there's no unpleasant surprises. Carbs were drained before being stored three years ago. Needles are unbent, rubber diaphragms have no tears or patches. See pics for condition. Float bowl screws and drains are not frozen or stripped. Floats uncracked and functional. However, brutal honesty means that I'm not selling these as a "bolt-on-and-go" set. There is residue in the float bowls and a little rust that needs to be cleaned. recommend pulling the jets out for a thorough cleaning, as well as the slides-I only gave them a cursory cleaning during inspection. Surprisingly little varnish considering this rack is 14 years old. Check out the pictures for condition and details. With a proper cleaning and typical adjustment, you'll keep your Ninja 600 running like new. Also an excellent starting point to experiment with jetting changes on a spare carb rack so your ride isn't sidelined if your jet choices are too far out to work.
[I only have one request of the following posters *not to sound haughty* but, please don't tell me to go efi *I can't for a number of reasons* Don't tell me to turbo instead of N/A b/c its cheaper *once again I can't for a number of reasons* just try and help me with this particular problem. It would be much abliged]
Thanks in advance everybody!
