Ooer, could the ZRX be sorted?

Fired her up this evening to give it a test before a ride tomorrow just to see how it was running. Fired up great, even without balancing the carbs she ran better than before.

Was running a bit rich on idle and realised id not set the mixture screw to what dynojet recommends with the kit. Quickly tweaked them to 1.5 turns out and restarted. Running really nice, idling with AFR around 13, which I'm happy with, although may tweak out a touch nearer to 14 but will see how it runs on the road first as if it's good will probably leave alone as the dynojet kit is already sounding great, so I'll trust them to know what they're doing. :thumb

Test ride tomorrow :)

If this is all sorted that's the best cash I've spent in a while to sort it so easily.

The ZRX is pretty bad in summer, blasts hot air straight over your legs and gets a bit toasty.

Nice in the colder weather though I guess.

Yeah, if I ride spiritedly on the Faz you really feel the heat of the engine when the sensibility kicks back in.

pretty much yes.  I need to put the bike in neutral for the last half a lap and coast round to cool the engine.

sorry for the thread hijack.

No worries, that's what CMC is about  ;)

I always thought the temp shoots up as you come to a stop since the air movement has suddenly stopped but you still have a large mass of heat soak in the engine that needs to be dumped.  When you're at speed it's all in balance with the fast air flow removing the heat being built up.  Suddenly stop (like coming off the motorway to a roundabout or into the pits in your case), and all that heat has no where to go as the air flow has suddenly stopped.  Temperature goes up and the fan comes on to drop compensate.

if its leaking get it brass brazed. I have done that a couple of times now.

let us know how the fueling is.

Not that anyone asked but I run at about 80/85  but it ramps up to 100 within about 3 minutes if I stop at lights and the radiator is huge on the fz8

I have a theory about this. When I am riding on track the engine temperature rises to around 94 to 96 degrees. As soon as I pull into the pits (still moving but with no load) you would expect the temperatures to start dropping, however it shoots up and the fans kick in. I think its because of the water to oil cooler on the engine. The oil temp generally sits a lot higher than the water temp, riding hard raises the oil temp significantly. I think the heat in the oil is pushing the water temp up as it is transferring its heat energy to the water system.

sorry for the thread hijack.

Dynojet stage 3 needles and jets fitted, can't be arsed road testing it this late and weather's grim, so will save it for the weekend and see if it's sorted (fingers crossed).

While pulling the fuel pipe off the tank the bloody brass fitting came out the tank valve  :wall.

Looks like an interference fit so knocked it back in with a nylon mallet and seems to be sealing ok, so will just keep an eye on it.  It's got the vacuum valve anyway so at least shouldn't weep while off, will check when running when I test it.

Great service from Dynojet, kit came through this morning.

Will hopefully get a chance to get the carbs off and re-jet etc with the new jets, springs and needles :)

Fingers crossed will sort the fueling and save a trip to the tuners.

Have bit the bullet and ordered a Dynojet stage 1/3 kit for the ZRX.

From what I've read the kit should work "out of the box" with pod filters and full exhaust system - here's hoping anyway.  Will be great if it works as it's a pain seeing it sat there all the time and not getting any use.

Nog - what engine temperature does the Tracer run at?

My track bike is regularly sat at 96 to 98 degrees when I come in after a session. I have the fans set to come on at 96 degrees, so its generally on when I get in.

Volume wise there i think the trx readiator is about the same as the MT09 / Tracer, but the tracer on is much thinner and has a bigger surface area.
It went up to 105 coming across London last year in 30 deg heatwave. I fu  :censored ing hate cyclists. I couldn't filter due to the construction of the fu  :censored ing cycle superhighway, making the road so narrow, fu  :censored ing cyclists. I just sat there with the thing belching hot air up me (whilst dressed in full riding gear, albeit with every conceivable zipper undone). Did I mention I fu  :censored ing hate cyclists?

But yeah on hot days and riding with some gusto, it does get up around the 100 mark, but normally in this weather 80, and 70 in cooler weather.

Just came back from a trip around the IOM and must admit had it up to 102 at one point when riding hard. Soon comes back down and average was probably around 85ish.
