Something a little Different

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' at netrider.net.au started by Matt75, Apr 19, 2012.

  1. Hi Guys,

    Technically I don't have an R1 but what I do have is a ford escort using '98 R1 carbs.

    As motorbike carbs are designed to run at really high revs they are well suited to car engines and are becoming more and more popular due to their price and performance characteristics.

    I am looking for a set of adjustable needle jets if anyone has a set lying around as mine only have the one groove and I wish to be able to fine tune the fuel mixture.

    Cheers,



    Matt

  2. Haha! That's awesome!

    Presuming you mean the needles, Factory Pro will make one, you'll need to know the year R1 the carbs are off, Dynojet will probably make one also.

    Better yet, see if you can find a set of Keihin Flatslide carbs, that would be fun.

  3. Cheers,

    They are from a '98.

    You can get a dynojet kit for $120 AUD but I really just want the needles.

    I can get them for less than $20 from the states but the postage is $115!!!!!

    Cheers,

    Mat
