No, it's a GSXR muffler. Yes, that setup makes your ass look big.

Would you like potatoes and onions with those carbs?

Quote:
What does "boiled the carbs" actually mean? Yes boiled them in water. worked great. Guess i messed up leaving those puppies in.
OK....well that's a new one for me.

It may have worked great on the outside but unless you blew all the carb passages out with compressed air I'd be guessing you still have water in the tiny passages in the carb.

This would be particularly true if you did not remove the idle mixture screws since those passages are connected to the pilot jet circuit and should be cleaned.

You likely did not damage the O-rings with just water.

I recommend staying far away from the spray on carb cleaners you can buy at the auto shops. I've seen them do bad things to O-rings and carb diaphragms.

Pull the idle mixture screws and all the jets...attack with compressed air and be careful to align the diaphragms correctly when reassembling (theres a small "dent" in the tops that have to be aligned with a hole in the carb body). Then give it another try. Set the idle mix screws at about 2 1/2 turns out to start.

Lomax,

I think it's the rack....not the bags.

Did nobody understand my "first lady" joke? Or are you all democrats?

Watch it.

If you add potatoes, doesn't that give you more carbs?

Cheers and happy holidays

I change front ends on most of my bikes so stock configurations are rare. If you take a piece of string and route it along your existing line, master cylinder bolt to caliper bolt, you'll get a measurement. I can help you then.

The stock line with all the zigs and zags is 48". I figure I can lose a few inches through rerouting of the line but don't want to be too short. Unfortunately my bike is hibernating for the winter and not easily accessible or I'd mock up a line with rope to figure it out.

As soon as i can i'll pull the mixture screws and have a look.Thanks again. Got a new camera for xmas, so pics will come easier, i hope.
