  2. New here

    Just finished some touch up around the mirrors the rest is stock ,new demon sports and front fork bushings and seals, used a Gustafson shield, while it fit nice it didn't have the black around the bottom but I have since found a new screen with the black ,on the way, cleaned the carbs and installed a jet kit and it now purrs, also can't get my trip reset to work, will sent to Joel Levine and have him look at it, finally out of moth balls after a long hibernation!
  3. Vf1000r needles

    The vin tag says 3 of 1986 I did check the slides and they are in fact drilled so I am now assuming it's a Dyno jet set up, i dissambled the carbs, needle and seats pilot jets main jets ,choke plungers, polished the slide bores polished the slides( they were hanging up) put it all together with needles in the 3rd clip with one washer under the needle,40 pilots 130 mains and 2.5 on the fuel screws, the bike had 35 pilots and 125 mains needle in #2 ,and it felt lean especially in the mid range, I also have a square hole in the front of the air box between the two snorkels ,maybe 4X4 inches and a KN filter, also have aluminum F1 mufflers, sooo I just started the engine and WOW throttle response is instant! Way better than it was! Finally I think it's the monster it should be, Verry Happy now, was quite a learning curve to do the carbs took me 6 hrs start to finish, so glad I did!
  4. Vf1000r needles

    So I am mechanically going through my carbs and bought a jet kit for my bike took itt all apart and found 35 pilots 125 mains and a needle with C clips the kit I have uses 2 washers under the stock needles, I am assuming that the needles with the C clip must be Dyno jet needles from back a few years? I found 2 pilots clogged and floats out of adjustment? Question, do I try to find stock needles or use these as they were except for the 40 pilots and 130 mains in the kit?and is the fuel screw set at 1 turn out?
