    Jetting/Adjusting Carbs


    I put my slip on exhuast from Two brothers last month and didn't do anything to the carborator.
    Oreo on the ride this past weekend told me that my bike was popping every once and a while. Maybe not getting enough fuel.

    Do I have to adjust the carbs?
    Do I need to jet them?
    From my understanding jetting allows more fuel to enter the cylinders quicker.
    Should I jet them.
    How do I adjust the carbs and make sure they are adjusted correctly?

    Basically, I have absolulty no idea what or how to do it.
    Could some one help me get started?

    Jetting/Adjusting Carbs

    Cooter, Jetting or recalibrating a multi-carb bike is a time cinsuming and often frustrating task. With a slip on- you may be able to get away with raising the needle in the carb a clip or too. But if your in there, you may as well install a jet kit....
    Not too tough if you have the right tools. Mainly a carb-sync' and a balance guage. Give me a shout and I give you a little more in depth info......Bill rabidmsports@metrocast.net

    Jetting/Adjusting Carbs

    The other night, I was out with a few riders, and they all said they saw some blue flames cmoing out of the pipes, when I was hard on the throttle. Can anybody explain this?

    Rich jetting. Unburnt fuel igniting in the headers.
