Carb balance.
Sat on the bike,look at the carbs,and number them 1-4 from the left to right.
There are 3 adjustment screws inbetween the carbs.Call them A B C left to
right.So we have...carb1..A..carb2..B..carb3..C..carb4.
carb1 is adjusted by A
carb3 is adjusted by B
carb4 is adjusted by C
carb2 is NOT adjustable by any of these screws,only by the throttle stop screw.
Turning the screws clockwise closes the throttle plates.Anti-clockwise opens
them.Screw A is adjusted first,to bring 1 into line with 2.
Screw B is adjusted next, to bring 3 into line with 1 and 2.
Screw C is adjusted next, to bring 4 into line with 3.
Screw B actually adjusts 3 and 4 at the same time.
So you could also change the order to A C B.
You should be in the ball park now,so just go over it once more,gently on the
screws,and lightly blipping the throttle between adjustments.
You can do it with only 2 gauges if thats all you have,or only 2 of your 4
read the same.Use the 2 good ones on 1 and 2 first,then 2 and 3,then 3 and 4.
The engine should have been warmed thoroughly before you started this,by
putting some miles on the clock.Ride further if its cold out.
I personally balance at 1500-1600 rpm because most zx11s Ive ridden or owned
have felt sluggish between this rpm and around 2200rpm in 3rd, when two
up,going uphill,in third then braking for a 90 degree left also uphill and
hitting the second hill at around 1300 because I was too lazy to change gear.
I put this malady down to kawasaki not getting the slide cutaway just right.
Its the only way Ive found to improve it.
Finally.
I put a d2 in a c2 frame,d2 carbs c2 airbox.It didnt run as expected until I
put the mains and needles from a c2 in those carbs.Sort of proves the d's box
breathes more air.
