hi guys,

Erm i didnt intentionaly mean to but popped a lovely wheelie the other day and came down hard, i changed my cutch springs and still gettin used to it, anywaays, came down hard and now the old girl is running on 3 cylinders, my first thoughts were oh fook then my other thought was hey i sound like an sv, so i've replaced my plugs checked the spark and all is good there, but am loosing lots of petrol, at 85mph @5000 revs the no. 4 cylinder kicks in and runs fine but then poo again, the only thought now is the float is stuck in 4 and possibly 3 carb, can anyone verify this could be the case?? either way its driving me mad as i use the bike all the time and it sounds like sh1te

there is fair chance your right :lol:


you may also of dislodged an electrical connection. either way, you'll have to lift the tank and airbox off to check so you'll be able to check the state of the coil connections as well as whip the carbs out for a once over. you won't need to strip the carbs down completly just take all the bowls off and see they are all the same hieght.

open your airbox, you've probably filled it with petrol going on one wheel, especialy if you went to far.


if youve come down hard check that all plug caps are seated, as you could have knocked one off.

well i've had the airbox off about 5 times in the last 48 hours and the plugs have been replaced and i checked the plugs each time the air box was off plus i checked plugs and leads on the rocker cover and all have a glorious spark, some guys on a zx9r fforum recon i should pop the bowls off the troublesome carbs and check the float are not sticking, i'll try that tomorrow and report back, if you dont here anything it would probably mean i've burnt it :D :lol:
