I just got running a Jackpiner that I picked up from Victor ,it doesn't seem to run as strong as I thought that it would.Does anyone know the correct carb for a '73 ,my book calls for a 54/36/xxx bing, it has a 84/30 xxx on it. thanks for any help.
Jeff,the dealer service info up dated mar.1,1974 for the 175 carb bing#2/30/101 main jet #150 to#155 pilot jet #35 needle jet #280 needle pos.#2 middle reccomended replacing the float needle to part#40-405 for better carburetion,idling,and gas mileage. these spec's are for using the twin air oiled air filter most everybody uses today
Jeff you might start with what jets you have now and go to information provided by Bob Gilman. Your bike may have been jetted for sea level and at 4000 feet above sea level makes it not run well. The reason I say this is that you should note what you have now to use in the future. Have you cleaned the carburetor?
thanks every one for all the info i never knew of the Penton tech tips thank you Dale lots of useful info .Mickey looking forward to the race in Canby Hope we get some rain before then so we can run the longer CC course. thanks again
