Made a start today with the jet kit removed the tank,air filter side panels seat other bits and bobs Smile



Not much room to get the carbs out



the invoice in the service pack is true for the carb work someone has been messing,look at this pipe



things been ripped then just shoved back on so that will need replacing

And the carbs, not stripped them yet as the float bowl screws are like cheese
so will need to bring me good screwdrivers
home from work



Thats it for now will update when I do some more thumbsthumbs

Not sure if you have already done it Lee but while the carbs are off it might be worth putting some extension lines on the vacuum take off stubbs cos they are a right pain to get at under the choke slide.
The bike's looking great and be interesting to see the difference with the jet kit thumbsthumbs

Done a bit today,seems ages since I took the carbs off Laughing

started fitting the jet kit one carb at a time thumbs

took the top off the first,notice the little oring at the top be sure not to loose this if ya doing ya carbs



then remove the diaphram



Then remvove the needle and all the parts washer and spring to be reused I lost the first spring but theres new ones in the kit



see the difference in the needles dj needle closest in the pic



pic of all the bits together with the spring can see how easy it is to loose bits Laughing


new slide springs dj spring being shorter



inside the carb


checking the slide moves freely after new parts are fitted



next was to change the main jets,mainjet being pointed out



pic of the standard main jet and the dj mainjet



Thats it for now need to set float height
and make the vac exstensions before the carbs go back on will update soon thumbs

finished the carbs off ready to be installed

I think seeing all the bikes at j&s at the weekend gave me a kick up the arse to get it done Laughing

anyway had to get a mate to help setting the float heights,was awkward trying to hold the carbs at 45 degrees trying to set them sorry no pics

dynojet instructions say turn them upside down to set them but thats wrong shake finger

anyway float heights set and new allen key head bolts fitted to replace the suzuki cheese screws

just pointing out the af mixture screws,these need to be reset when fitting jet kit


so next up was to make some carb vac exstensions will make life easier for balance the carbs


found these little shut off valves to go on the ends of the vac pipes only need 3
4th is easy enough to get to



Thats it can refit the carbs saturday after work then get it running balance the carbs up and make any final adjustments before dyno run thumbsthumbs

well after start to the day got round to finishing the bike off

so fuel supply all rigged up,let the carbs prime and she burst back to life Very Happy

let the bike warm up and notice a big difference just in throttle responce straight away Very Happy

time to sync the carbs now vac gauges all rigged up

[img][/img]

hers a pic of where they were at

[img][/img]

Few tweeks here and there Smile

[img][/img]

couple of more little tweeks,this was the best I could set them to

[img][/img]

all built up now ready for a clean and mot
oh and oil and filter change,put new plugs in this morning

[img][/img]

Took it out for a road test massive Smile factor all the way pulls like a train,no rough running low down very slight stumble around 5000 rpm dyno time and few more tweeks should sort that

I read quite alot on installing the dynojet kits to the bandit and there seems to be alot of negative comments they dont dial in right ect ect

to me I would say take it with a pinch of salt what you read

I know I wont see properly How the bikes performing till dyno time,but first impressions Im well happy with how its running big improvement

for balanceing ya carbs follow this vid of trebor,ya wont go wrong
