  • Carburation issues

    ok so i just got a set of carbs with "stage 3 setup" turned out they just had 120 jets in it nothing else was changed. so i took those jets and put them into mine, which i found out someone changed since it had new needles and open mixture screws however 112.5 jets.
    i have it set at 3 turns on the mixture 120 main jets and 2nd notch on the needles. i had it on the 3rd but it didnt feel right.

    so when i take it out the bike idles like a dream, low end the bike feels pretty good, feels like it could be better. now when i open the throttle it feels bogged down but then takes off, the bike does not smell rich.

    whats the next step move up a notch down a notch?

    thanks for any advice.

    Move the clips UP a notch, that will lower the needles.

      just to make sure would it be wise to move it to the first notch?? or should i look into new needles?

        Yeah, first notch is fine. If it doesn't work, try moving the other way 1 notch (compared to where it was before, so you would actually go to notches down from the top clip I guess you could say)
