Dragster 650 Build Progress 6#

Post by newjack66 » Sun Feb 15, 2015 7:55 pm

Hi all

Thought it was time for an update.

Wiring is 99.0% done. My spark issue was resolved. An easy in the end fix but FRUSTRATING :evil:

21 inch wheel is fitted with new tire.

Fresh, oil, plugs, pads.

Now the very frustrating and time consuming process of jetting the carby. Stupidly I left the fuel pump (kept flooding the carb) attached but got rid of it as I'm using a gravity fed set up thanks to some advice from the Mikuni dealer in oz.

For anyone that has any advice I am using a Mikuni HS 40 or TM 40 Flatside. I was told the carby is too big for the 650 but can be set up to work with much trial /error & tears.

I'm going through the tears. I may in the end go for a TM 36 or TM 34 but at the moment carb is getting fuel but no running.

I'm starting the Pilot at 200 and working down (195,190,185,180 etc) and the Jet is 20, but I have a 25, 17.5 and am getting a 12.5.

Arhh the horror .... the horror ....

The bike looks great but I don't envy you trying to tune the carby. I went through that drama once with a car that I hotted up, ran a carby meant for V8's on a 6cyl. in the end I managed to tune it better than the so called experts but like I said I don't envy you at all, good luck.

Looking good, mate. that colour really pops, in contrast to the black.
