  1. 99 cbr900rr: can't idle at 1200 and power dies at 6000

    Honda FireBlade
    The blade is reborn, albeit a lil rusted and dulled. I got my 99 rrx to finally run under its own power, and even adjusted/synced the carbs, the best i could. It sounds pretty good, idles ok if set to about 1500 rpm according to the dash tach) and responds awesomely to snap throttle and...

    Honda FireBlade
