  2. Why FCR's and other questions

    Aftermarket Perfomance Parts Reviews
    So, I thought I'd ask the question as to why carbs such as keihin FCR's are considered better than standard carbs? What are the pro's and cons? :idunno: As an aside - I run a 94 CBR900RRR - so if I was considering FCR's - which ones should I go for ? And why? Thanks in advance.....

    Hey guys, I've got a 99 cbr 900 with a stage 2 jet kit, and a hollowed, shortened two bros bolt on. I'm just wondering where my air/fuel mixture screws should be set at, and does turning them in make it rich or lean?

    Honda CBR400RR
    Hi All, I'm currently restoring an NC23 CBR400RR-K Tri-Arm for a bit of project as it seems a pretty good bike to learn about bike mechanics on... So, my (first) question is, what does an airbox do? (Aside from housing the airfilter!) What effect will removing it and putting air filters...

  9. Idle air screw and carb cleaning.

    Honda CBR 600
    So i just bought a brand spankin new gasket kit for my carbs. I plan on rebuilding them this weekend. I was looking at the idle air screw and was wondering how they come out and at what setting do you put them back in. These carbs are off a 1994 CBR600 F2. Any ideas?
