carb settings confirmation VT750
who else has a VT750DCA (mine is 2003) - with the follwoing settings/conditions/results:
stock air filter & box
Cobra streetrod exhaust with baffles
104 front cylinder jet
106 rear cylinder jet
40 slow jet in both carbs
1 shim on both needles - 2nd notch on the e-clip on the needle
air fuel mix screw ________________ turns out? currently 2 3/8 per shop manual
carb sync set with the butterfly on each carb just on the back edge of the #1 of 4 holes in the venturies
This is where I am starting after the fuel system restoration due to rusty gas tank filling the whole fuel system with rust. I got the bike used 15K miles came with the 104/106 jets and the Cobra pipes. I was running very good until i screwed up and ran the petcock on reserve for an extended period and suck all of the rust out of the tankl and in to the fuel filter, fuel pump, lines and carbs. The filter, pump, lines have been replaced the carbs have been removed dis-assembled and torn down completely cleaned and put back together. there was a lot of rust in each bowl and the area under the vacuum slide had a significatn amount of crud and the front cylinder carb had crud inside the air cutoff diaphram - all holes, jets, passages, needles, air fuel screws and passages, diaphrams, vacuum slides etc were cleaned with carb cleaner, compressed air and wire strands roto-rootered every hole. Now i have to put it all back together and tune the carb air fuel mix, engine idle and sync.
anything i am missing that I need to consider or do before i re-install the carbs and do the a/f mix/idle/sync?
