Bloody phones !

I have been spanners get on friends bikes a lot lately and was feeling guilty !

Since I fitted my new exhaust system things haven't seemed right.

So it got the better of me today and I tore into the carbs , nothing too major.

Sync, TPS was at I can't believe it 830 so I checked it several times and managed to get it to 537 .

Resynched the carbs again and did an idle drop as per the manual.

"Bloody Hell " Took it for a spirited run around my village and what a difference. Pulls really hard now and sounds better. I think in my haste to ride the bike with the new exhaust I rushed the last sync and didn't check the TPS and did a hasty mixture adjustment.

From now on I will take my time , I must stop working on other bikes and spend some time on the old girl.

Going for a ride with some mates later so I will have a chance to test my handy work !

Glad you didn't suffer any long term injuries. I know the feeling of losing a VTR you love!

Congrats, your in the cult! Er, I mean brotherhood. Or club. Whatever. You are one of us. Don't listen to anyone, I'm not that crazy.
Best of miles to you on the new bike. Looks nice and is the fastest color.

Welcome mate,

Best colour, nice pipes and hangers, what wheels are those ?

Be warned these bikes have a habit of getting under your skin because they respond to fettling so well.

Now get out there and ride and tell us what you think.

Dymag wheels.
Will be a little while before it is ridden. Just ordered a service manual this morning.
Will get all new fluids with oil, coolant, brake and clutch, and forks. Needs new chain and sprockets. Needs a plastic chain slider as the original crumbled. 20 year old bike, Ron Ayers has the bits. Carbs have a decel pop, going to order new rubber boots while I order new brake piston seals and other little stuff.
I put about a thousand miles on this bike 10 years ago, buddy was getting rid of it and asked me if I wanted it.
Sure do!

Don't know what that is yet, so I have no idea.

Bet I'll find out soon!
Need to look at the TPS setting and see if it is at 500.

Looks like you have stock auto CCT's. You should read up about CCT failures and decide if you want to take action.

Welcome.

Welcome.
Yes, cam chain tensioners are stock autos, but my buddy gave me the manual ones he got a few years ago and hadn't gotten around to installing. One of the many things I'll be getting around to.
I have a 99 ZRX 1100 and do all my own wrenching. Don't have ability to bore cylinders and major stuff like that, but I'm used to working on bikes a few years old like these.
Did a ZX14 USD set of forks on my ZRX, will think about a 04-05 CBR 1000 front end later. Getting the important stuff like brakes gone through is first priority.
Looking forward to all the details I'll get from here.
