Hi Everyone, Just to let you know that I will be racing the FZ at Mallory Park this coming Sunday (18th August) in the penultimate round of the Earlystocks Championship. As always, everyone is welcome to come along and give some support, I think entry to the circuit is around £12.00. If you do decide to come along, then come and say hello. We will be in the paddock, which if you dont know is in the infield and accessed over the bridge. I am just working on set up at the moment, doing some fine tuning on the carbs and suspension!
Hope to see some of you there. All the best Keith 221
Hi Graham, Thanks for that. I have had a look at the forecast which currently is saying dry and overcast which is pretty much ideal. It would be good to see you and catch up if you can make it, I could also do with picking your brains again with regards Bike Number 2!
Disaster! I have just got home, unfortunately the van broke down on the way to Mallory ( only got 2 miles!) It appears that the fuel pump has gone, so unfortunately I wont be racing tomorrow. Needless to say... I am gutted!
After the disaster with the van last round... I am off to Mallory on Wednesday for some testing prior to the last round. I am testing new carbs with K&N filters, a different exhaust system, stiffer fork springs and a 180 rear tyre! Hopefully make some progress for the final round shoot out against the GSX 1100's! Its the first time up against them and although they are not in my class, it would be good if I could give them a run for their money!!
I've read reports of many problems when folk fit pod filters to the standard carbs. I believe they take a lot of setting up to get a smooth power deliver. Being a race bike it's probably not so important. I'm sure Mr Horse could throw more light on the subject.
vtr: Hi from cape town; new at forum's not at bike building; the insanity is contagious. Recently acquired a "1FU" FZ750 with dropped valves and decided cool to rebuild as a 911conversion sleeper, what we do to ourselves...

grahamfirestorm: Can anyone tell me why my bike doesn't seem to light up after 7000rpm like all the research I did before buying it.She has the standard 4 into 1 exhaust,carbs rebuilt with new jets,seals,floats,2 new diaphragms,all valve clearances checked and adjusted?

grahamfirestorm: She revs round to 10000rpm ok,but there is no urgency with it,my 1987 Kawasaki gpx750 was a lot quicker,and that was supposed to be 10-15 bhp down,ive been told the standard silencer and air filter are to blame but I don't believe that.

2manyprojects: Hi all, just aqquired 2 FZ's (only one for me, one for nephew). Have a stable full of bikes, I do have a problem, some say its madness! Am based in North Devon, yes where its always raining! Lol😂

Graham : grahamfirestorm. Do you have standard size main jets fitted to your carbs? I would be tempted to go up a size or even two to see if it helps the bike pull stronger at high revs.
