Motorcycle Carbs, Fuel Intake & Jetting
It’s crucial that your motorcycle carburetor is able to produce the correct air/fuel mixture and push it into the engine. Not enough fuel and the engine will lean out. Too much and it will run rich. Performance mods and elevation changes may require you to change the size of jets in the carb so that it will run correctly. Jet kits are a great option because they will contain all of the jets that you need, along with charts to show you when to use certain jets. After sitting for some time, jets can become clogged and will need to be replaced. It’s important that you replace it with the same jet size to keep the same fuel mixture. You can also replace the whole carburetor if yours is too damaged or if you want to change the size of the carb.
Fuel injection motorcycles generally require less maintenance, but can be modified for better performance. Fuel tuners or processors allow you to electronically change the fuel mapping to accommodate any performance upgrades that you may have made to the motorcycle. For even better performance, you can even upgrade the throttle body to get the maximum amount of flow. Sensors and fuel injectors can also become faulty over time and can be replaced individually if needed.
