Can you drill out carb jets?
By drilling out your stock main jet to larger sizes you will be able to narrow down what jet size your carburetor needs. You will need a numbered drill bit set. If it’s lean and you need to increase the size of your main jet, drill the jet out with the next size larger drill bit, which in this case is the #60 bit.
Can you drill out pilot jets?
I would strongly recommend you NOT drill out the holes in your pilot jet. Just spend the two dollars and buy the new one. and here I thought I was the only one who thought about drilling out my jets. The only difference between me and you is that I actually went through with it.
Do carb jets affect idle?
As far as jetting goes, the jet size will not affect idle, as the jets don’t come into play until the carb transitions to the primary circuit, unless the throttle blades are open far enough to expose the transfer slot.
What do bigger carb jets do?
Installing a smaller size jet will reduce fuel flow, which is ideal for high-altitude conditions where air is limited, where a larger jet size increases fuel flow for oxygen-rich, low altitudes.
How do I know what jets to put in my carb?
The old jets will have a number on the side of them to tell you how large the hole for the gas is. If you’re trying to give your engine more gas, install jets with a larger number which means it has a bigger hole. To make your engine run leaner, install jets with a smaller number and therefore with smaller holes.
How do you know if your main jet is too big?
Typical Lean Conditions: (A too-large main jet also mimics this symptom.) – The engine runs hot, knocks, pings and overheats. – The engine surges or hunts when cruising at part-throttle. – Popping or spitting through the carb occurs when the throttle is opened.
What is a carbide drill bit?
Carbide (Carb) is the hardest and most brittle of the drill bit materials. It’s used mostly for production drilling where a high-quality tool holder and equipment is used. It should not be used in hand drills or even drill presses. These drill bits are designed for the most demanding and hardest materials.
Does Jet needle affect idle?
so in short; yes the main jet and needle position DO have a minute affect on the idle circuit’s jetting mix, but it is very nominal.
What jet controls idle?
The pilot jet, also called idle or slow jet, controls the amount of fuel at idle and throttle positions up to ¼ open.
Does a bigger carburetor mean more power?
The answer is no, not really. The amount of fuel that’s sucked into the carburetor is controlled by the carburetor jets. Installing a bigger carb is simply going to improve the power potential of your bike. You still have other things to worry about like improving air intake, exhaust flows and jets.
What is the pilot jet in a carburetor?
The pilot jet handles the mixture from idle to 15 to 20 percent throttle. Air comes in through the front of the carburetor drawing fuel up through the pilot with a vacuum that is created as the air flows through the pilot circuit.
