Just wondering how many people out there have just a slip-on exhaust only with no jet kit?

Have you encoutered any problems (flat spots, etc) from running without jetting the carbs?

I have a 2001 ZX6R with a bolt-on Hindle exuast with no jetting done except for the air bleed screw adjustment. The only thing i have noticed is that the bike will backfire when i start it sometimes, and at night if i downshift really hard it'll shoot a blue flame out the back of the bike, but it seems to run really well. Just some unburned gas sitting in the pipe or the headers. These problems arent persistant but they happen every once and a while. Im told its nothing to worry about, The sparkplugs were a textbook example of (the perfect looking plug after 14,000kms............so i think my fuel air mixture is OK.

off like a prom dress!

Cool, thanks.

What did you have to do to the "air bleed screw"?

You dont have to do anything to the air bleed screws, but you can fine tune your bike if you synchronize your carbs and adjust your air mixture. Mine weren't even to factory specs, which explained why my bike was always slower than my friends bike. I ran my bike about 15,000 miles with just a slip on before I put in a jet kit, it won't hurt anything but you WILL notice a differnce with a jet kit.

I should probably transfer this into the "Newb" section but how do you sync the carbs? or adjust the air mixture?

I had a couple of dead spots after putting on the Yosh, but they got taken care of during scheduled maintenance, just with the adjustments minytrker mentioned. Mine was off from the factory, too.

Ivan's jet kits are designed to work with just a slip-on, though, I might still try that out.
