Re: quater mile time

you could try strapping the front end down so it won't wheelie so easily so you could launch harder

Re: quater mile time

my first and last time with the fzr(made a lot of passes in my car and pickup) at bandimere i ran around a 14, if i knew what i was doing or had a two step or wheelie bars, probably could've gotten a 13.0 easy, take away the high altitude and that'd probably be a 12.0. Since its your first time you'...

Re: yamaha xj 550 won't idle.

yamaha xj 550 won't idle.

My dads 1981 xj 550 won't idle, and i can't really find anything on the carbs that will adjust all of them at once. Also it is super cold blooded, i'm guessing it needs a valve adjustment, anyone else have any ideas? thanks
