  1. 1988 GSXR Carb Sync Issues

    Oil Cooled Gixxers
    This device is legal in the UK so long as it is not used to cause harm to an individual. What it does is use a trip wire to activate a spring mech that fire a 12 bore shotgun blank. Blank being the important thing. I was advised to mount it at knee level so as not to cause any harm. The guys...

    these guys came with pick axes with the intent to remove such an anchor. I am going to see a welder and have him dig a big hole to fill with concrete and then make me a 3/4 inch steel plate anchor. No more messing around. added to that I will set up a 12V 3G alarm, and a very special surprise in...

    The Slingshot is back. The idiots ran out of fuel and left it in a street. Facebook alert was seen and a member of the public rang me and I met the police and recovered it back. No damage. The TY80 is still missing. Now I am in the process of securing the location where it is kept.

    The bike was kept in my loclupgarage close to home in Liverpool. The theives used pick axes to gain access and stole both the GSXR and my kids 1980 TY80 No friends suspected not neighbor - this was a targetted attack. Needless to say I am totally gutted.

    Latest update - Air / Vacuum leak frustration. Having identified the intake rubbers as leaking I bought new ones with new O Rings and fitted them today. Hoping that the hanging revs would go away I then started her only to find the revs still hanging. Out came the easy start and I...

    Time waits for no man - I went over to the garage with a head torch on, carbs off and screws now soaking in plus gas. I have acetone and ATF ready too

    Thanks for the replies guys. I am using a ratchet with the best fitting crosshead socket on and as soon as any turning force is applied it feels like the screw will head as the socket wants to tear the screw head. Just doesn’t feel right. I’ll get her stripped down again tomorrow and see if...

    I get that thank you, knowing the screws that hold them in place are stuck fast I’m now looking for the best way to remove them. Engine out time ?

    Thank you, I dont see much space in there to swing a hammer but you sound like you have done it before so there must be a way... I hope its just the O Rings that have failed rather than the rubbers themselves

    Well I finished setting up the carbs and fitted them only to find the same issue present. So out came the easy start and I aimed at the intake rubber mouths, minor increas in rpm on pot 4, pot 2 and 3 caused more of an increase and pot 1 minor so it looks like the leak is present after all...

    Just to add that my son thinks the mains are staMode with 120 on them. He has Berger eyes than mine. Stock is 112.7 Float height was 13.55mm so not a million miles out. Emulsion tunes look fine as do the pilot jets. Can’t see anything part wrong with the carbs which are now all stripped for...

    I agree, I have inspected them closely and no sign of any issue at all. All are flexible with no cracks or damage. One thing to note is that when I removed the carbs from the boots there was little to no clamping force in the boot, they came off too easily so the leak might be from the carb side...

    Hmm found a small piece of wood in place of spring 13268-17C10 at the cetral throttle adjustment mech - I guess that explains the difficulty in syncing carbs 1 and 2 to 3 and 4.....

    Thanks for the reply. I haven’t checked for vacuum leaks just yet but I’ll put that on my list for tomorrow. Someone also suggested that the mixture or pilot screws might be lean so I’ll check those too as it could lead to the hanging revs issue

    Bit of advice if possible ? Set my valve clearances on the 750J today and went about syncing the carbs afterwards. Before sync and clearances I found the throttle response super crisp and it would come down the revs to idle super snappy but it wouldn’t idle. If I adjusted the idle knob it...
