ZX6E Awful gas milage and smoke
Hello everyone i recently got ahold of a 1994 zx6e and love the bike so far, but im having a few issues with the bike that i thought maybe someone could help me with before i spent money trying to fix the issue on things that might not be causing it. As the title says im getting bad gas milage and by that i mean maybe 10 mpg tops and when im accelerating or cruising above around 5k rpm i can see smoke behind me that i assume is unburnt gas. I know it isnt coolant that was my first worry but ive kept an eye on coolant levels has yet to drop. as for things that have been checked the sparks plugs have been replaced so has the air filter ,oil changed and the bike has a new chain and sprockets on it and the last owner claims the carbs where rebuilt. the only mod on the bike is the last owner drilled out the mufflers. The only thing i can think of is that the carbs need rejetted due to this but with how bad the gas milage is i would imagine it would run bad but it runs really smooth overall except it dies out at idle sometimes but i think its just set to low. Anyone have any suggestions on what this could be causing the bad milage i assume the smoke comes with the milage and isnt a separate issue. Thanks in Advance
