Gp1200R Carbs needed!
Hi Guys! I live in Australia and am after a set of carbs for an 01 gp1200r (66V). Wreckers here in Aussie want $550 per carb (used). I have only just bought the ski and found it was running a bit rich on the bottom end. Pulled the carbs off and found one low speed adjuster totally destroyed (previous owner) . Have had carb to a mechanic who also said it could not be saved. Hence the need for new carbs or carb (center).
Aussie jets are also way different than what you guys sugest. Have read many posts on gp jetting, especially from you osidebill.
My current jets and setting are as follows
Main - 135
Pilot - 92.5
N & S - 1.2
Accelerator pump to all 3 carbs
Standard Air box
Called my local yamaha dealer and got the High and low settings, all different as well.
I think it would be wise to use osidebill's jetting formula, Any Ideas???

Osidebill is the man to talk to. I'm sure he has a set of carbs too

I agree with using the formula, However I will not take credit for it. Fernando was the one who taught us this. I just sold the last set of carbs I built, but I have another in process. It will be a week or so before I have time to finish them how quick do you need some?
Here is a pic of the last ones the new owner got them this week. http://greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=71173

don't waste your time getting carbs done (rebuilt or machined) here in Australia, they dont know what they are doing well enough to do the job 100% correct, trust me i know cos i have been down that path, buy a set already done and modded by bill and you will be buying with confidence.
when anyone mentions carbs on here bills name always comes up, nuff said.

i hear ya billy, i got reamed $2200 for a 100 hour service and carb rebuild including machining the frozen screws out on my first ski ( before i knew any better)...the ski was never the same however they did try and do it right but just didnt get it right.
i think its fair to say that greenhulk has saved not just me but every member a fortune.
BTW billy, I now know that all/most of the shops seem to send frozen cabrs to greg ball engineering for drilling down here in Sydney, he does them for 250-350 a set and has all the jigs ready to go, not sure how they get away with tacking on an extra 1200 . He does bulk bike work and is a decent guy just dont let them port your jugs

Hey Osidebill, I am looking for a set of carbs asap. My ski is apart in my garage at the moment. On hols too, and keen to ride. When do you think you will have them done? Also what price would they be shipped to Australia. I would rather buy from someone who knows their stuff rather than some clown here in Australia trying to rip me off.

I can get them done in a week or less, I have to get some parts in I need, that takes a couple days. The shipping is the killer it is $80 and 4-10 days delivery. The last time I sent something to Izzo it got there in three days, I do not know how it went that fast. The price for OsideBill specials is $550 shipped since that is in the US I will knock $25 off for you so $525+$80 shipping to Aus Let me know.

Hey Osidebill. Yeah I know shipping is a killer, especially with the exchange rate the way it is. But it beats paying $550 AUD for just 1 carb in need of a rebuild here. Sound great to me. What jetting will be in the carbs & what mods do you do to them?

I completely go through them, install all new rebuild kits, remove accelerator and chokes, remove tamper evident caps and add t-handles. Jet to spec and balance pop-off. Mount to the intake and synchronize throttles. I add primer fittings. I also install all new SST hardware. Ask anyone who has ever received a set from me of the quality and detail that goes into them, I guarantee you I have never had a dissatisfied customer.
