Ok guys I need to know where to buy pilot jets (12.5) suzuki wants $9 a pop. I put a 98 750 with 97 750 carbs but the carbs came with 15 pilots so I need to find some. Thanks for the help.

You are changing your pilot jets? I have been fooling around with the main jets. I too have a 98 motor with 96 carbs. What is the reasons to changing your pilot jets anyhow

you guys are switching to carbs? I'm confused here. I thought it would go the other way around where you'd have a bike like mine (96' 750) and do a convert to FI. I'm just curious as to the reason for changing over?

i changed over because I got my bike painted before the motor change and inorder to put fi i would have to had done mod to tank which would of been more of a hassle and easier to throw the carbs on at the time

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">If you wind up below 1 turn on the mixture screw, you think about dropping the pilot a size. If you are over 3 turns, you might go up on the pilot.

It isn't in a jet kit because stock 750 is 12.5, so I don't know why the dealer can't get them. K&L or Sudco are good sources. OEM Suzuki is the hard way. Would take a parts guy with a brain though. And probably a customer that knew what to ask for. The two wouldn't be very likely to meet.

It has a large effect on the low end, starting, and transition to the needle. A stock 750 motor with a pipe usually works better with a 15. With a milled head and race pipe, mine ('99 motor in '96 bike) would barely start with the 12.5 in it.

You'd put carbs on a fuelie motor if you were putting that motor in an older bike. Converting the bike to fuel injection is not a trivial task in terms of effort or money. The '98-'99 motors are more desirable because they have better cylinders, heads, and especially rods.

well for me it would cost more to put the fuelie set up on mines due to the tank that i have painted its air brushed and the guy would have to redo bike if i was to convert here is a picture to see what i mean. Oh yeah don't ask me about the 1 rotor I know this already

other than that i would have been fuellie long time ago. If i add anything else to bike it will be a 1000 next to it
