    Longer intake runners vs stock bolted carb to head Q's

    I was blown away coming from 2 stroke air jet tuning where you go from 0.5 to 1.5 turns and find the sweet spot somewhere in between. Even 1/2 a turn is a big deal on these carbs. I leaned it out a little too much and got stumble after, I fixed it with half a turn WTF! 1.5 turns on the fuel jet...

    Vintage forks with progressive springs, still not enough

    Its the progressive spring upgrade for the xv920 so aftermarket correct, your supposed to be able to run these without the air added, iirc. I'll check it the preload I forgot these are adjustable, lol. Hopefully thats it. The front has never felt stiff. Oh the front will never overcome the...

    Vintage forks with progressive springs, still not enough

    On my tracker I have the vintage air forks and added the progressive springs which is suppose to be an upgrade but they bottom out on hitting the curb on my drive way for example. I am a light person and my rear shock is semi-modern (1997 triumph). Is there anything else I can do? Add more oil...

    Longer intake runners vs stock bolted carb to head Q's

    Got it running good now. I had to make some gaskets and play more with the jetting and bowl heights. And I can't believe how sensative the fuel screw is on the tm's like one turn out wrong the bike runs like ass at idle like it's got a vaccum leak.

    Longer intake runners vs stock bolted carb to head Q's

    When things are custom you never know with fueling I learned. It was pooling gas in the front cylinder for my exact worry which is when a spray of fuel hits the bend. It's a flat slide carb thing.

    Cafe XV920R Mega-Build

    Nice that's great to hear! Looks like a lot of fun. Ya it's a bit of price jump going 1002cc, 11:1, cams, head work, titanium valve springs, New ignition. Your bike is looking pretty light so power to weight is a big deal. Your getting huge gains in hp tq and throttle response and another...

    Longer intake runners vs stock bolted carb to head Q's

    Ya the 43s. At that point I machine another fcr kit. I didn't want to do that again. But in hindsight thats that route I wish I did. Mikinoz claimed the kit plug and play and I wanted a relaxed install for once. I didn't want to spend hours fudging around with my fcr kit but in the end I think...

    Longer intake runners vs stock bolted carb to head Q's

    Well with some "English" and trimming I was able to get the filters to fit but there are vaccum leaks both manifolds, the oring supplied for the intake adaptor are too small or poor quality. Im either going to make gaskets or see if I have a fatter oring. This mikunioz kit is very far from plug...

    Longer intake runners vs stock bolted carb to head Q's

    Well got the filters to fit but the bike lost too much low end and throttle response. Back to the drawing board. They are the tm38s.

    Cafe XV920R Mega-Build

    Nice man, looks like a modern high attack street fighter! I like how you tied the swingarm, shock to the subframe to the frame, very cool. Maybe check for cracks in that subframe from time to time just to be safe as your swing arm, frame and shock won't break, leaving all the stress on the...

    I love those swing arms on the classic kz. It looks your too tall on the rear.

    Hollywoodmx's XV920 Tracker - Quick Build

    Ya ok like I had too on my Cafe. I actually just ground down my one tensioner. I'll check your thread. That's a really unique throttle solution for the carbs, why not just do dual pull? Thanks for the jetting info when I did my test run I'm definitely richer than that so I will dial my down...

    Hollywoodmx's XV920 Tracker - Quick Build

    Jag! It's like a reunion! Fcrs are king. But they don't fit nice.What did you you do throttle cable wise? What was your final jetting? I wanted easy going install on this bike due to limited time piasing around, with the tm38s kit as it was supposed to be plug and play but they were not...

    Longer intake runners vs stock bolted carb to head Q's

    Hold up guys, I think I derailed the topic when I started talking about my supercharged kz after someone asked and we are blending the two conversations. My kz is 1175cc, roots type super charger so the intake bolts to the SC. I'll take pics and post in the kz thread. I know someone who has...

    Longer intake runners vs stock bolted carb to head Q's

    Okay well they're 45° Bend which I don't think it's a harsh angle. The other two into ones used to have between 45 and 90° bends so maybe it's not that bad. See what happens. The KZ I still have it it out of the three bikes would be the last one to finish my Cafe XV is quite close as well so...
