    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. And main jets front 118, back cylinder 122 for 1990-1992. 1996+ there is 115 and 115 size jets. Why are there different jet sizes? My fuel consumption...

    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?

    Hi all, Last year I bought a 1990 RD04 but it has been running too rich. Removed the carbs to clean them out and have a closer look and found the previous owner put in 2x 130 main jets. Stock jets are 118 and 122. Needle is set 3th notch from the top. The jets are too large but what size should...
  10. What's it worth?
    My 1998 TransAlp has decided to stop running! It had been running very rich for a while and now, no go. So as I am skint I am thinking maybe time to cut my losses, what would it be worth? Bike has done 54,000 miles and apart from the starting(or not!) is in fair condition.

    Been spending lots of time on the AT at the moment, now have a problem! Last week I changed the air box as it was split & had seen better days. While doing this I freed the choke cables off as they were seized. Now it's running really rich and fowling plugs! Any ideas??

    Anyone fitted these on their AT's? I fitted last year some locally made (some sort of rubberized canvas). Problem is that they aren't as elastic as original ones and I couldn't get rich mixture when tried to adjust it with Colortune plug. There is no air leak so I am thinking that the problem...

    Last year I bought Colortune spark plug in order to adjust my mixture. No matter how much I turned mixture screw I couldn't get rich mixture (yellow flame.) I cleaned both carbs before adjusting and checked with spray everywhere for leaks but the rpm's didn't change so no leak, right? It is...
