    The theory is quite sound.. Will start some investigating. just did a 25 km ride real easy... B roads nothing higher than 5000 rpm... Felt good..... :) Will build it up from here.

    I think it was (too ?) lean before drilling the barrels.... but now it runs hotter and the sparkplugs are white (perhaps borderline grey). Based on that i was expecting to go richer.... At the moment the adjustable jets in the throat are 3 full rotations out and can not be turned in...

    Head gasket ordered. Also a nice moment to contemplate the jetting. it is fitted with the standard now. But it needs more juice. What would be a nice step up? 108 is standard, 115 118 or 120 is what i am thinking of..... the rest of the bike is bog standard.

    hi guys, I've driven the bike some 4000 km now. It runs lovely, but there are 2 major issues. oil leak at the from "in between" bolt connecting the head to the barrels (stripped thread) and (even after replacing the valvestem seals) oil burning on deceleration with a blip of trotthle (please no...

    ZR-7 Performance Upgrades
    Hi guys, I'm hanging around here again :) (a little anyway...) I have a question... in my K810 engine, I need to pull the head, I have a stripped thread in the hole for the 2 small alu bolts in the head near the cam chain, I will need a new head gasket to do this. BUT since I am running a +3 mm...

    Hi guys! It has been a rather busy past few months. Bought a new house, dropped the zr, not to serious but enough to put it on the back burner. Planned a small holiday coming week, will know more about the running than. At this moment the bike performs very well, the zx6r front end seems a...

    :) the Netherlands is not much different I suppose. Winters around the -5 to plus 5 Celsius and lots of moist...(that is around 32F i believe) But since this "tempswitch" is screwed into the airbox, it leaves a rather large hole when it is taken out, i decided to patch up the wires and screw it...

    To be honest, I never asked what the lead times on original parts where, I just checked some online prices (partzilla, CMSNL) and found the Wiseco kit. decision was made and along the way other sellers crossed my path and i was able to obtain some more lovely bits. For a simple oil usage...

    damn... you are on to me Obo! no, I have done so many other things, got my engineering degree (college degree), upgraded my house to put it on the market and sold my house (in 5 weeks, only 1% under the asking price), changed jobs. And... somewhere in the minutes that are left did a strip down...

    Well maybe... but than again, this has been a lovely journey... I learned a ton of new things and ... most of the parts (like the inlet booths) are already mine before we started the whole adventure. Last night I've changed the booths. Also took the time to make the idle adjuster a little...

    there is a weird phenomenon that happens with the carbs on a Z650 when it won't start the fuel get INTO the airbox (filter). a pal of mine had some real problems getting the 650 going and he kept believing the floatbowls were overflowing... in the end it was just some weird vacuum process at...
