Hey folks, I just bought a new 01 ZX9r and I have discovered that it has carburetion problems. WHen I shift into hirer gears (starting with 3rd) there is a dead spot at first and then huge surge of power. Acceleration isn't very smooth when steadily applied. Evidently this is common on this bike for 00's and 01's. However, that doesn't make me feel a lot better. What should I do. I am leaning towards a exhaust can and either tuning carb to match or jetting. Actually thinking about a micron slipon with their jet kit. Any comments - thanks for replies.

I have done a lot of research on this and have found that the problem is very wide in it's severity. Kawasaki's recommendations for settings are vague from the factory, and altitude plays a part as well. (Japan makes no concession for air density) Most problems can be fixed with just a little tweaking in the jets. (not requiring a jet kit) Some problems have been fixed with just a slip-on. (Ak being the most consistent, as a side note the standard pipe set is quite remarkable, and other than weight savings not much is gained above a slip-on.) Advancing the timing (much like on the Y2K mods for the 12) has also been known to fix the problem. I would suggest before you spend loads of cash find a good tuner, and they should be able to fix it easily with out too many spare parts.

Sounds like timing or bike needs carb adj. to me.again it's well worth the extra cash for a pipe and j.kit.D&d seems to work wonders on my 9,but as for the 12 akro,muzzy and hindle have done that bike wonders on the dyno.

I made a kit for the 2000 + 2001 ZX9R........

There is a ton of R+D that I spent on that bike....after the installation of the kit....carburation is flawless.



I own 2 of them, a 1999 with the 1000cc piston kit, and a stock 2002 with an Akra pipe and the kit that I made for it.....
