Bit more if gentle, and with a worst of 28mpg with a pillion into a head wind. To do it correctly you need to use a new plug each time as the appearance will be so minimal that most people cant see the difference. Airflow, vacuum, determines slide position. As an aside, have you noticed any issues if you leave the fuel on prime? The effect of overlap is diminished because the piston is in the way because the exhaust valve is a convoluded path away. The jets appear to be standard.
The piston fits very close everywhere and the combustion chamber? Yes, when I stripped the carbs every conceivable orifice was opened, flushed and blown through with an air line. I did try adjusting no 1 air screw, but it didn't seem to improve it. I believe the pevious owner may have installed this kit : It says the float levels need to be at 11 - 11. The oil pan and valve cover is different on the Bandit. Since moving the needle height to 3rd from top I lose power up to 2000rpm and its a little rough but bags of power there on up. After a couple minutes warming up, started to smoke real bad so I shut it off. If you dummy assemble the head without the head gasket you should be able to turn the engine over with the pistons clearing the head.
Bandit 1200 mods, a 1. As it's missfiring however you might find that you'll need to re-balance the carbs once you've cured the missfire. Rebuild kits are great for rubber parts, but I'll never summarily replace metal parts again. Head is torque is 45 ft lbs. Replace the slide and diaphragm to their original positions, and install the cap, using a new o-ring, if required.

The gas pools on the piston and seeps past the rings into the crankcase. Although it also says to measure them with the carbs upside down. Coming back the next morning there was a puddle of gas on the floor, so I checked and it was those old float bowl gaskets. And burn your hands even more. I never submerged or soaked the carburetors themselves only used spray cleaner and compressed air.
When opening the mixture screw are we richening it? Either way, Kickstart's advice on checking the state of the carb setup is far more detailed and generally better than mine. Replace the o-rings, within the caps, located on the 1200cc Bandit. Hell, I'm running these on all 3 of my keepers. As for the tacho stability, I'd be looking in to carb balancing at that point. I prefer using numbers that make the ex number 1 or 2 degees less than the intake number this will smooth the idle. Not sure how I'm going to get that out without a butchering job. I also put a 600 Kat motor back into the 1100 Katana that I removed the motor from for the Bandit.
If you ride a bike with short numbers they have a cammy sound, rough idle, etc. This works really well in a 2 valve design because the port is similar to a funnel. Properly dialed in slotted cam sprockets can gain +4hp over stock cam timing. The skinny line off the side of carb four goes to the petcock.

And don't remove them for too long either - a few seconds should get the results.
In fact still has the factory tires dated in '02. Hello, I have a 1200 bandit year 2000 naked on a 'w' reg. Let there be a 0. The fact that plug number one is still clean is very significant - it sounds to me like there's just not enough fuel coming through to No1 at idle. Install the carburetors on the bike, and tighten the clamps that hold them in place. This is my third one.

When I first got it, it seemed to run poor. They do make some good cams, but be careful.
