1986 gsxr 750 with 1986 gsxr 1100 carbs-help!
Ok, so I’m new to this whole forum thing. I’m not really sure how to navigate this scene so I apologize if I’m asking something that has been asked or if I’m breaking any kind of etiquette or rules by making this post. I paid the $40.00, so hopefully that’ll count for something lol.
Right, so I’ll just jump in. I have a 1986 GSXR750. It came with what I believe to be 30mm milkuni carbs with dyno jet stage three kit on it. It never really ran right I bought the air box. Connected it and took out the dyno jet 160 main jet, replaced it with 136 mains but it would only run if the filter wasn’t installed in the box. So, now we have an empty air box, 136 main jets, and it ran decent for a couple weeks. The bike fell over and never ran right after that, hardly ran at all. I think something happened to the outside right carb because there’s no change when I adjust the air/fuel mix screw..but I was told if I get these 34mm stock mikuni carbs off an 86 gsxr 1100,(I have a 750) I could delete the air box and use the k&n filters that were on them and that they were already set up and rejetted and they would “line right up and run”...well...$425 later, it doesn’t. It’s gotta sporadic idle, acts like its hitting the rev limiter at 5k, bogs down and shuts off at red lights, which is pretty much the same spot I was in before... I almost want to throw this thing away, and I’m kinda mad/frustrated at myself for taking the word of someone trying to sell me something instead of doing a bit of research first. So this is my thing, I want to keep these carbs on(34mm OEM1100 gsxr carbs) and I don’t want to put the air box back on. Can I do that and still ride around town to and from work? Is there a baseline I can start at to get them set up, as far as needle position, air/fuel mix screw turns, and float height go? If I have to put the air box back on, can I keep the 34mm carbs? Are they even beneficial for performance or anything? If I have to put the air box back on, can anyone find me new boots for it? Or will the radiator hose I bought work? As long as they are sealed right? lol...I also heard the only way to really set these things up is with a dyno. I saved up for three weeks to buy these carbs and I only paid 425..so you know...money is tight right now¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I appreciate any and all help provided and again, I apologize if I’m asking questions that have already been answered...technology(or carbs for that matter) aren’t really my forte.
Thanks in advance,
