r6 carb tuning

i have a 2000 r6. the mixture screws were 4.5 turns out when i got the bike (not running).

i replaced ths pilot jets (had been drilled out) with factory ones, and set the mixture screws at 2.5 turns out.

the bike ran but had alot of hestiation off idle and in the mid range.

I then pulled the carbs and moved the mixture screws to 3.5 turns and re-syncd everything. the bike is MUCH better off idle but there is still some mid-range hesitation.

is 4.5 turns too far out???

do i need a jet kit???? (dunno if it ever had one - but the caps were already off the mixture screws)???

am i suffering from some other problem????

The K&N filter is really bad for the carbed bike... I went back to the stock filter... still have some hesitation issues in the low end... but none on the high end.... try going back to stock filter...

For some reason I keep having to resync my carbs... how often does one need to do that????

On the R6 I'd go back to the stock air filter.

If you've got the Dynojet kit, put the needle at 5 notches from the top, run 142 mains and 3.25 turns out on the fuel screws.
That will be a good baseline point for you to start at.

Make sure the boots are tight, in particular the #3 clamp can be a to tighten all the way, and check your synch.
