  1. Africa Twin
    Hi, My 2001 AT has 18,000 miles on it. It runs poorly and stumbles and vibrates a lot. Over the winter I think a carb strip and rebuild is in order. Any thought as to have far should I go? Remove carb?. Strip? Fit new jets, gaskets, etc? Ultrasconic cleaning? Replace diaphragms (if fitted)...

    Where can I purchase two main needle jets (the long needles attached to the carb slide)? I know the part number but am unable to find anyone stocking this item. Addition to this post- I found that Rugged Roads stock the items (stocked as "Fuel Needles"..!!!) . However they have two part numbers...

    FOR Sale FCR Pumper carb 40mm I bought this carb for my new build however after offering it up it became clear it will not fit due to the altered frame loop This carb is rejetted with the correct needle jet(nctv 2nd ring down).

    The mixture on the front cylinder is rich and this foul the plugs up with carbon, which means I must clean or replace them often, the other cylinders fine,I did a trip to Malawi in October last year and had to change the plugs every 2000km. Is this the jets or air/ fuel mixture screwed?

    This is now on the terrace. There is fuel in the tank but the battery only lasted about a minute but at least we got a backfire. The battery is now on charge. Do I need to alter the standard carb settings after putting bigger jets in for the free flowing carb It started after a bit of faffing...

    Hi guys I'm back on an XR400 (2001) I think :-/ I am green laning and want to know what the best jets to use are? Standard pipe with the standard insert REMOVED (can't believe I found a bike with that still in it tbh) and a bit of open pipe bolted in to keep it a tad quieter. snorkel...

    I have been scouring the net to find a carb needle and jets to set up a Keihin FCR 41 carb I found on ebay. Allens dont have the needle and the only places I could find one is in the states which will take forever to get here. I found one in Holland but they want €40 for it. :mad::mad::mad: Any...

    Hi. When I stripped my carb last time I found the pilot jet really scaled up , I cleaned out the jet but since doing this the bike has a really annoying habit of cutting out without warning , not often but once is too often when commuting to London. I thought I would change the jet first to see...

    RD07A is running like a dog, pretty sure it's blocked jets. I have read up, and it seems like it's going to be a total b1tch to try and get the carbs off and clean them up. Before I do so, are there any other top tips that might I might be able to try? I have tried carb cleaner and Redex and...

    Hi! I am looking for a rebuild kit for my XL600v 1996.......I have found several kits running 1987-95, but none for my 96. I see that the mains are different, but are there anything else? Can I buy a kit for a 95 and just switch the mains for the 118\120 jets? I have used Sirius before on my...

    I've ordered some alternative main jets for altitude. In the XR400 Haynes manual it says the main jet can be removed via the drain plug on the float bowl. Honda don't supply whatever type spanner is used for this, does anybody know what size and type of spanner fits?

    HI there can anyone tell me where i can buy main jets or a full jet kit for xl 600 lm cheers! :rolleyes:
  15. Transalp
    I have a new problem now :/ When I twist the throttle quickly, fully (on low rev) the engine is "drowning" (or struggling, dont know how to describe, basicly loses power) instead of rev up immediately as it used too. If I twist the throttle slower everything is fine, no power loss. Is this the...

  17. Africa Twin
    I'm in the midst of restoring my RD03 (very pleased so far). Last night I was finishing up the carbs and noticed that the jets are rated at 130 and 125. Checking the manual confirmed that the front carb gets the 125 and the rear carb gets the 130. My question is why? Why would Honda want the...

    Guys, I've just got an NTV650 - so lets just say it's a Transalp engine ! Only 8000 from new and less than 1000 miles in the last 10 years, quite a find.:D Bike starts & runs well, but starts misfiring when you get to 60 or 50 if going up a hill. It won't go any more than 60. I've cleaned...
