YZF600R Carb refresh and sync.....

So, I had a carb with a sticky float valve and decided to replace the float valves, float needles, air/fuel screws, float bowl bolts, float pin bolts and bowl o-rings for all 4 while I had everything apart. While I had everything broken down, I decided to check/adjust the carb synchronization too....


Everything laid out. All OEM bolts were
#2 Phillips. I ordered both #2 and Allen heads in stainless steel. Decided to stick with Phillips.



Time to crack em open and get to work.....



Old parts out.....




Old parts to the right, new to the left. "Four legs good, two legs bad."
I re-used the float valve screen from the old float valve.




New parts in on the right.



Carbs back on and ready for adjusting! On the bench, I set the air/fuel screws to 1.5 turns out and went form there. Not much adjustment was needed. Thanks again to Bryan for letting me borrow his Carb Sync tool. Also in view behind the carb sync tool is the homemade Auxiliary fuel tank. The build thread for that can be seen here - http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=341158



Can't get much more



Annnnd video for good measure........Purrrrr's like a thunderCAT!

Nice work on the carbs. Sounds sweet. I did my Bandit a year ago. Makes you feel nice to get a project completed.

Update:

So I finally got to ride it this week and ....... HOLY !

I wish I had done this THE DAY I BOUGHT THE BIKE. I bought it used from a sponsor on here (Dealer) back in April of 2014. I was told that the bike had set up in the owners garage for a long time before he traded it in. I was also told and shown where they replaced some parts in the carbs. From day one it was never "perfect", it always had cold starting issues and idle issues. It ran real rich and people behind me would complain. It would surge and stumble down low. I was constantly tweaking the carbs.

Now, this thing runs like a sewing machine! Smooth power till redline. Starts easy, idles fine. I think the rich running is better now. Odd fact: the 97-05 YZF600R's came with #158 jets unless it was a CA bike which came with #148's. Well, the 06-07's ALL came with #148's.

Anyhow, she runs like a top, I wish I had spent the little bit on parts a long time ago. I'm EXTREMELY please with the bike now.
