    gp1200r Carb Crossover plate

    What are you guys thoughts in filling in the grooves on the carburator plate- crossover plate- Is it a good idea? What would you guys use to fill in the grooves, so it dosent come out and get sucked into the engine? JB-weld or some epoxy?

    What jetting do you use, and do you have the restrictors bored?
    Keep in mind you will get a strong pulse on the carbs, which only causes issues if it doesnt need to pump like a maniac

    110pilot 125 main 1.5n&s 95g spring choke plates removed- Stock exhaust, d plate, riva sound supressor, carbon tec reeds and stuffers- 140psi ADA heads- I havent bored the restrictors with the 95 jet on the return line- But i plan on doing that for next season. So do you recommend i close off these crossover grooves? if so what do you use?

    I would only do the mod if you have the restrictors bored, this will both make sure all pumps work together for a steady fuel pressure, since you will get a strong pumppulse, this also creates a bigger expansion area for the fuel,
    Like Jim said, dont do stock, if you try to hammer fuel in an engine that doesnt take it, it will either run bad or break checkvalves in the carbs.

    I used a cnc machine to fit some metal bars in, but i beleive most guys over here get good results with JB weld, may be a thread about that somewhere.
