Just had a quick look at a set of gsxr1100 M Mikuni 40mm carbs on ebay. They are totally standard and 17000m miles apparently? They may do the trick? But then I am not a mechanic and mess up the threads on sauce bottles!

Thanks for that, already spotted them but the M model is oil cooled and I need a set for a water cooled. Different spacing unfortunatly Wink

Hi

To be honest, get the bike on a dyno. From memory part of the problem is the fuel pump and whether there is a return line. Think there was a fix to blank off the return line after the pump which resulted in severe over fueling when not at speed.

All the best

Thank's keith but the fuel pump isn't even in the equation at the moment, I'm gravity feeding the carbs from a great height so no problem there. The problem is with the carbs and everything is wrong. Main jets, pilot jet's, air jet's, needles, emulsion tubes etc, etc and gawd knows what else has been done to them. I'm not so sure that the carbs are even off this bike anymore. The cheapest and eisiest way is probably a set of gixxer carbs and start from there Crying or Very sad
Spent most of the day ringing round the breakers and found a couple of sets but the bad news is, with vat and delivery, it's gonna knock a big hole in 200, ouch Confused
At least I should be able to get it runing and THEN onto the fuel pump Crying or Very sad

Hi

Suspect someone has had a botched job at trying to sort the original problems.

All the best
