Hi all, got my cbr600 carbs running pretty well on my 6n. Sounds mint and has a fair bit of go despite not having had them tuned properly yet. just wondering whether anyone has managed to adjust their throttle pedal travel with carbs? Currently it’s only got about a quarter of its normal travel until I’m at full throttle which makes Rev matching and modulating the throttle pretty tricky. Thinking of making some kind of adjustable pivot point to bolt onto the carbs, to go between the stock cable and the cable that’s attached to the butterflies. Are ther
Hi all, just got round to fitting my cbr600 carbs onto my 1.4 8v (AEX) polo 6n. Im trying to fuel it using a t piece with the standard injection pump, however when I switch on the ignition it pours fuel out from the bowl overflow hose, doesn’t start and when I stop cranking it pours more fuel out. I’m pretty sure the floats work ok, could the pressure just be too high from the t piece? Tearing my hair out a bit so any wisdom would be much appreciated, thanks :)
Hi, trying to plan out my bike carb build for my 6n to crack on with once I’ve replaced the sills. I am wondering whether I’ll be able to run carbs with my standard ecu (AEX) Leaving all the sensors in place, and moving the map sensor (I think these use a map sensor?) to the new manifold on its own balanced takeoff. I’d fuel using a t piece and probably have it remapped If necessary and the carbs tuned. Reason for wanting to do this being that I REALLY hate wiring, and really love spending less money on things 🙂 thanks
Has anyone used a tuning chip on a 1.4 8v 6n (AEX)? There’s one advertised online for about £50 and states a gain of 6-8bhp with improved fuel economy, less flat spots etc. Trying to figure out if this is snake oil or will genuinely get a bit more fun out of my little engine. any thoughts?
Hi I've had this car for 10 years, daily driver. I was told 10 years ago I have low oil pressure. I was advised to : 1) not idle at hot for a long time 2) change oil 2x yearly. Been doing as advised and car has been ok otherwise..... and always every 6 months I change the oil+filter (10w40)..... just as the low oil pressure light starts to flicker after 45mins driving. Yesterday I bought an oil pressure tester (manometer + hose + M10x1) and have now finally tested it myself at hot. Haynes says 2000rpm at hot = 2 bars. I have 2000rpm at
