Yea I got slides & glides, Diaphrams. from you ! after I put them in there was no change in proformance, A Tech at the Suzuki shop cut me a deal on 150 jets K&N Lunch B,
4-#4 washers, & 2 new carb intake boot O-Rings,and 4 more plugs.So when the K&N comes in, & O-Rings then I can get to IT..
But my next door friend needs her lawnmower rebuilt, I'm hoping it will only be carb cleaning & plug & gas lines?? never know :laugh: what you find could just be out of Gas??
next I've got to paint the House :cry:, Man I hate latters !! Anyway my Bike gets pushed down the list! Not cool.. mustang

40 pilots non bleed X 2.
150 mains, Mikuni, large slotted round X 2.
#4 washers X 2.
3 turns on mix screws.
Float bowl allen head bolts X  4 - 5mm dia - 12mm long or 2 X 16 mm for the front and 2 X 12mm rear.

Set Floats to top of bowl,
Synch them either eyeball or drill bit or your favorite garage method or with mercury, guages or ... etc etc

What else - yea clean everythign, wd40 everythign at assembly, dont strip screws and dont hurt yourself.

Check for air leaks before disassembly, make sure vent hose isn;t ripped or blocked ... whatever, vacuum caps are on and good, O rings are good, float spigot O rings, seats and needles seal up well ...
I dunno what else - choke opens and closes good ...

Cool.

No, you only have to drill if you buy the dynojet kit.

Buddah I think way back when when jetting the GS I used a Dynojet kit and believed I had to drill something out perhaps the slides the more I think about it?

It appears I also did something to the small brass circular plugs in the carbs body?

How will this affect future jetting changes I'll need to make when using  a Lunchbox.

Thanks for your time./

Tang - you have to drill out the brass caps ... unless you're hoping someone did that on yours already ... if that is the case, and your pilots and screws on the top and bottom are all good ... yea ... you've escaped the drill. Yes I can sell you all the jets washers, bolts knowledge (that is free though  :thumb: ... and may be worth exactly what you pay for it  :cookoo: ) etc.

Fry - brass caps gotta go so no problem there, slide having 1 hole blocked is OK, blocking 1 and closing the other partially can be bad, but may be ok. DJ requires you to do that though due to their stupid ass steeply tapered needles ...
BTW DJ's 134 is supposedly for the pipe and K&N clamp on ... if you got it, run and try it. The other dude just made out good with 140 mains. Get that if DJ 134 isn't good.

Cool.

What's up?  I got a quick question and didn't want to start yet another thread about rejetting.

I have my carb out to clean and decided I want to go ahead and rejet it while I'm at it, since it runs so lean I have a hard time unchoking it at times.  Not cool since I'm moving north to Chicago in a couple weeks.  So...I have an '02 and I'm running an aftermarket exhaust--not a high performance, but better than stock--and a drop-in K&N.  From what I was reading, I was thinking of going with a pilot 20, a mid 62.5, and main 142.  Anyone have any other thoughts?

Other than a good cleaning, is there anything else I should do to get a little more performance out of her?

Where can I get the jets from quickly?  I need a fuel line too, I busted one of the tank to petcock lines pulling the tank.  I'd like to get them ASAP.  All of the dealers here are closed Sunday and Monday.

K&N drop in and pipe is 130 or 132.5 mains. I'd do 130's, the Rest is fine.

Thanks.  It runs very lean, should I go with the 132.5s?

What's the best source to get them from?   Do you sell them?

You bump up mid mains too, then 130 should be fine, 132.5 maybe if you leave mids stock. Hey I actually should get an 01-02 carb set working on a bike before I start explaining the differences between up 1 on mids vs Needles by 1 washer vs mains by 1.
That difference is too subtle for me to really know cos I never did it and run it the way I did with the 89-00.
I dont have 132.5 mains, I should be able to get them, but It may take longer for me than you. But I actually had a trip to the bike shop that I forgot to ask them completely about jets for 01+.
I will be going to the store again in 1-2-3 days. I will look.
Cool.

tang - rejet is $45 and return shipping. Jet kits are $21 for 89-00.
Yours is 01+ ... I am still working on buying stuff for it. Prolly more $$ on both, there is a whole extra set of jets. The idea I have is you can do needles and get away without mids, but no idea for sure.
Cool.

Mine's the 02, but I found all the jets (20/62.5/130's) at my dealership.  I paid $36 and I got an extra set of pilot 20's (I had to buy four--go figure) if anyone needs them. 

Bike runs well, but am leaking fuel out of left carb.  I pinched the gasket when I put it back together, so I pulled it and I used permatex to put it back together.  I still haven't tested it, lettting it sit for a day and a half.  Berto said that it shouldn't happen regardless, but the bike was on the side stand.  It doesn't have a center stand and I'm too poor to buy a bike jack (yet). 

So, my question, does it sound like the carbs need synched too?  I noticed when I had the carb apart and upside down the floats didn't sit at the same level, but didn't think anything of it.  Do the floats need adjusted?  How do I adjust them?

You pinched the float gasket ... and you used permatex ... permatex what silicone ... then hell no, never use silicone. I use gasket maket from permatex, but not when you tear the gasket. I just use it to shore up a marginal gasket. The gasket is torn, you're going to have to replace it.
Cool.

Yeah, it was the blue Permatex RTV Gasket Maker, which I think has silicone. 

I put two slices in the gasket, I didn't cut all the way through it.
Do you think it would be fine to use it to fill in the two spots?  Or which one do you use that you're talking about?
