    Sxr 849 tuning

    Turns out my low speed screws had the wrong o-rings which screwed up my tuning. I went back to the Group K jets and setting recommendations stock jetting L=72.5 H=132.5 3/4 turns out on both screws and it's pretty close now for a stock SXR with the 849 big bore and Tau Ceti air filters. Plug...

    Sxr 849 tuning

    That is a simple and accurate tuning method. A much easier read than Harry's too! Lol.

    SXR 800 Carb and Manifold

    If someone has the 40-I's or a single Mikuni 46 SBN I'm still interested. Otherwise I'll just look for another 40-I's intake manifold and call it good.

    Sxr 849 tuning

    Group K has two pretty thorough write ups on carb tuning. I'd start there. Also did you do a leak down test on your motor. If it isn't tight, you will never get it to work right or worse. If everything else on your ski is working correctly it sounds like you have a lean or rich condition on the...

    Sxr 849 tuning

    I have the same setup and are going through the carb tuning thing to. Group K sends them out with stock jetting L=72.5 H=132.5. They use the stock 1.5 NS and drop from the stock 80gm spring to the 65gm spring. They say 3/4 turn both low and high after break in. I started at 1 1/2 low and high...

    SXR 800 Carb and Manifold

    I'm building a spare backup SXR 800 motor. I have everything but the carbs and manifold. For a backup I'd like something nice, but reasonable in price. Stock 40-I's would work, but I would consider other setups.

    SXR Hood Storage ? Ghetto or Whoaa ?

    Lol. No it's for when you have an explosion in your engine compartment like I had!

    SXR Hood Storage ? Ghetto or Whoaa ?

    I had technical difficulties once (well more than once) with a Kawi 550 and I was glad it had a blowout plate and that it was chained to the hood. Otherwise I never would have found it or it could have hurt someone (probably me).

    SXR Head Cooling Barb Tap Size

    People may or may not appreciate this level of detail. The Kawasaki's use the JIS (Japaneses) standard threads which are interchangeable with the BSPT (British) standard. JIS is very difficult to find so most people will use BSTP which is more available in the US. While JIS and BSTP are...

    SXR Hood Storage ? Ghetto or Whoaa ?

    The 650 had room under the hood over the engine. That basket is pretty deep. I doubt it would fit a SXR. Plus you have to drill a bunch of hoiles through the hood to mount it. But the cap with a handhold is pretty cool!

    SXR Head Cooling Barb Tap Size

    Yes 1/8 NPT not 1/4 NPT would be the closest. I'm still pretty sure the stock fittings are something else very close to the 1/8 NPT. I should probably just go with the 1/8 NPT on the new hole and fitting and not worry about it. Thanks

    SXR Hood Storage ? Ghetto or Whoaa ?

    These guys made one for a 650SX way back when. I got one, but bought a 750SXI before I got around to installing it. Kawasaki Jet Ski SX 650 Jet Sport Quick Access Storage Compartment Part# 7952

    SXR Head Cooling Barb Tap Size

    I need an extra cooling line tapped into a 750 head for an SXR. I think it's a JIS / BSTP 1/4-19, but can't find it for sure anywhere. I could just use a 1/4 NPT, but I'd prefer not mix fittings.

    SXR NEW SXR 800 OEM Cylinder Question

    I'd like to know if normally you can use these out of the box or do you usually need to bore or hone them to the finished STD size? I'm sure an inspection and bore measurement would be mandatory. I've just never bought an OEM replacement cylinder, so I don't know how they come from the factory
