  2. RDO2 Pilot Jet

    Dominator / FMX
    Has any one got a pilot jet for a carb fitted to a RD02 to hand, or happen to know the length? Just stripping the carb and the current pilot jet that was fitted is 24mm in long, however the refurb kit for the carb came with one that was 28mm long. Any clues on which one is correct? The 24mm...
  3. nx 650 poor accelerating

    Dominator / FMX
    non standard air filter and exhaust (nx650 1999 Keihin VE carb) , hesitant acceleration up to 1/4 throttle , above that ok . all points to needing larger pilot/slow jet but already have gone from standard 50 to a 65 . a lot better but still not smooth . Anyone think ok to go even bigger on slow...
  4. XR400 Conks out

    XR
    Hi guys, a quick one. I've been trying to resolve my XRs fueling problem for a while now. It's main issue is that it conks out. If I rev it and let the throttle snap back, it tends to simply die. Whereas if I gently roll off, it stays running. I'm running #168 main and #62 pilot jets, clip...
  5. Do you own a Varadero 125cc 2004/5/6?

    Varadero
    Hi all, If the answer is yes can you please have a look at your service manual (the one which honda supplied ) and let me know the initial setting and final setting of the mixture /pilot screw. I think it's on page 5-18. Thanks.
  6. Pilot screw - mixture?

    Varadero
    Hi all, Is there a easyer way to set the mixture on a 125cc? Going by haynes screw the pilot screw it in until it seats then back out 2 3/4 turns then adjust to find highest consistent idle speed then screw back in to drop idle speed 50 rpm then back out 3/4. And you need a rev counter with...

    Africa Twin
    Hello I have a 1990 AT. I want to ask about pilot and main jets. Manual says about pilot jet, that 1990-1992 its size 42 and after that size 40.

    XR Technical Specs
    Hi there I've just put on an arrow exhaust system and I'm wondering what I can do in the carb when this system is on it. Has anyone done this to their exhaust and carb.

  9. 6v ac lighting question xl500s

    XL
    So my 81 xl500 has 6v AC direct unregulated lighting. Am I correct in thinking Ineed all the correct wattage bulbs to effectively provide some kind of regulation? With just the headlight bulb and tail light the tail glows really bright and soon fails. I see in the wiring diagram there is another...

  13. pilot jet

    Dominator / FMX
    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...

  17. Help!! Riding tomorrow, but starter + headlights don't work!! :((

    Africa Twin
    I was adjusting my pilot screws, with the tank off, when suddently the headlights went out, and the starter engine wouldn't turn. I've checked all fuses, wires and sockets, but can't see anything suspicious. All other lights work fine. Before this, on the most recent drive, I had the problem...

Nothing confirmed yet appears low level fog / mist are the cause and question over whether the Nav lights were on, on the roof of the crane t know if the pilot saw it. Feel sorry for the pilot and...
