New zx6r owner
How is everyone doing? My name is James and I'm from the east Virginia area. I'm new to the zx6r world but not new to riding. My new ride is a 98 zx6r. My other ride is a Suzuki gs500e. I actually traded a vehicle for the zx6r. But when I got it the bike wasn't running. I was told it had a stage 3 jet kit in it and it already has the k&n drop in filter and a muzzy can. I'm currently in the process of going over the bike for coolant leaks and oil leaks. I did clean the carbs up two days ago, pilot jets and mains all blocked. Soaked the carbs in the gallon carb cleaner. Checked all o-rings in the carbs and floats. Float valves look good with no ring around the tip. Put it back together and it fired up on choke with a super high idle around 6k. So I backed the choke off and it dropped to 4K. I then adjusted the idle screw that's just under the left side frame and the bike stalled when the tach needle hit 3k. So I hooked up the sync gauges and they where slightly off. Now it idles great but when I blip the throttle it has a slight hesitation and revs to about 6k then slowly drops to 4K then slowly and steady drop to 1200 which is where I had it set to. So I'm still trying to figure that one out. But I just wanted to drop in and say hey, riding season is upon us and I hope everyone that rides this season rides safe, stay alert and come home safely.
