    All they need is alittle cleaning and they are good to go. They have the fbg2 needles so I guess that's a start. Should be on the bike next week for an ops check. I hoping to see a big differance from my 38 cv carbs.

    Clean them out today and not much in there. With no choke they must run alittle rich at idle I guess. Sounds like most folks idle around 2K


    Also I see alot of them are number is that for easy access to the idle screw or to keep the two short throttle cables on the middle carbs. I'd like to pair them up so 1&2, 3&4 fuel inlets are facing each other.

    Got them installed and the bike started right up. Just waiting for test and tune next week for a ops check. I'm hoping my 6.16 is history

    Jake, I replaced a set of 36mm Mikuni flat slides with a set of 40 Lectronson an internally stock 1150 and it picked up one tenth in the 1/4. I can not remember (1992) exactly how much of that pickup was in the1/8th.


    As far as idleing.......... Lectrons are not made for idling a lot. WOT is where you want the Lectrons![img]smileys/smiley2.gif[/img]They will idle just fine right up to the point they foul the plugs.[img]smileys/smiley6.gif[/img]
