LMFAO :thumbsup:


I'm all hot and horny since i got on this site and did all the free mods, bike is cool

i got a FMF power core 4 slip-on coming in tommarrie, can't wait,

my prob is this,JETTING! i know i need to play a bit with it, when i had my bike in for the 1st service i had him drop in the 168 main and 48 pilot,
my next move is to do it all over again, plus the #40 leak jet, i plan on running it in Baja this fall (just pre-running) and then through the winter (with picks) so i'm sure i will be jetting this thing a dozen times before this year is up,

what is the easiest way to get that carb off? or should i say smartest way,
i remember having half the bike apart it seemed when i did the fuel screw change,
any tips would make my sooo happy

thanx in advance

I personally like the 3/4 inch winch cable for my carb removal......

I am a Bushman.....so I use bushman tactics!

I unhook a few thingies and wrap my cable around it, maybe even add a figure 8 stlye wrap with a good roll of REAL Ductape!

I hook her up to my f-350 super diesel and out she comes...

Have you removed your ais yet?
That's a whole New Battle....

I usually use a sledgehammer to loosen it up and it slides right off.

i didn't have enough traction on the f-3fitty!lol

i appreshgyate the replies, i didn't realize that i wouldn't need to yank the carb right off,

thanx for showing us the proceedure ARin it will save me a lot of time,

btw my last bike was a rm 250, it was fairly easy to change jets, i would just throw the jets in the air box and fire it up!

but this bike i kinda like :thumbsup:

I was always able to roll the carb (top to the left ) to open top cover for needle access then roll it to the right to get access to the bottom for screw jet changes and bowl removal.

I think it should be posted as a sticky for this forum also since it was started here. I did not know it was buried in the technical forum. :thumbsup:
