there seems to be very little info about these carbs on the interweeb ... even the keihin site seems to neglect to even mention the CVK line?? .. is it just my sad search techniques or is info/specs on these carbs just not available ..... I can find sites about street bikes that use some of the CVK line but nothing specific about the CVK 34/36

might want to find there tech number and contact them directly, might be able to help you out that way. then you can explain what you machine is doing and get help on which way or what to adjust, from reading your other post. one other thing to consider is one step hotter plug also.

Perhaps you're right ...in this age of tech and the weeb and answers "right now" I forget about old ma bell ;) .... the carb does seem to be running better now that I found out the float height was off :) ... would still be nice to have some specs/settings online to call on when needed.

By any chance would there be a weeb site/address to find available plug heat ranges for the 2006 AC 400 :wacko:

Thx Smoke, appreciate the offer, I may call on you yet, but I think now that I have found out the float height was off, a few of the other problems seem to be coming around and it is running pretty good, even at cold startup the choke seems to be working properly now :super_happy: . I have a DJ kit coming in tomorrow from JJs and wanted to make sure I was starting from a good idle slow jet base, only to run into more then I expected before I even get the kit :) This is worse then modding my Trans Am ;)

yeah i would recomend getting it good before you put the jet kit in so if something feels/is wrong i would then be the jet kit.
as far as heat range i would run what cat calls for but i DO think that it would be possible to run one colder/hotter than stock. cr7ecm lets say is your plug number, i think (not absoutely sure) but 8 would be hotter and 6 would be a cooler plug.

Could also call a Harley dealership if you're in a pinch. They use the 36 on some of their bikes. Garyb told me about that, and I was subsequently able to get a pilot jet from them (no Cat dealers had the part on hand).

Rockerdude just ordered a thumb screw pilot adjust
