Ask questions and discuss technical items here. Tighten till it strips, then back out a half turn.

Carb Balance

Post by BillWest » Mon Nov 27, 2017 6:20 pm

Boxer's maintenance activities prompted me to do some of my own (not because I had trouble starting the ZRX the other day....).

Replaced the spark plugs. I took out some Iridium ones, and replaced them with the Kawasaki recommended ones.
Also removed the K&N air filter, washed it in white spirits, re-oiled it and put it back.

Then came the carb balance.

Next: attach the carb balance equipment, attached to vacuum ports between carb body and cylinders.

I feel a bowl of pasta coming on. That should balance my carbs, they feel a bit low atm.

Well, if this has any resemblance to the kind of jokes you plan to reveal tonight, then I may just stay away.
