Zx9 carb question

I have a 99 zx9 and a 01 zx9. I was wondering if the 99 carbs could go on the 01 so I can keep riding while I jet out the 01 carbs. Also wondering what size carbs are on both of them? Thanks fello zx9 ers

Not easily at all, stick with the original ones or you will waste a bunch of time on the other carbs.

No need to do this anyways, jetting your carbs should take an hour on a bad day. Its very simple, what jet kit did you buy? Please tell me you bought Factory pro and you didnt buy dynojet? Just curious but why are you needing the size of the carbs? I will have another 98 zx9r in for a dyno tune here shortly, in which I have to rejet, I could always measure those carbs for ya, but curious why?

I was thinking about putting pod filters and taking off the air box and putting stage 3 jet kit in the carbs. I haven't bought any jets yet. Thanks for telling me not together dyno jet cause those were the ones I was looking at. I would need to know the carb size if I put pod filters on there.

An hour is quite a bit optimistic for installing a jet kit on these bikes. You might be able to do it in under an hour after some practice and only if you're changing jets. If you're messing with needles you'll probably need closer to 3 hours the first time and after practice you might get it close to 1 hour, and you'll get practice carb kits are rarely a one time deal. The only jet kits I'd consider for your bike are Ivan's (only if you have a 4-1 exhaust) and Factory Pro.

As others have said, although the C and E model carbs are the same size (40mm) and spacing they are quite different, but the F's and C's are similar. E's and F's have similar cams, timing, and port design. If you set up a C set like an F set they'd probably work, but that seems like a lot of trouble when you can just jet the E model carbs correctly.

Do not remove the airbox and put on pod filters! The ram air on these bikes is extremely effective and you'll lose a lot of free HP on the road for a possible increase on the dyno.

Where should I get them from? Should I just get stage 1? What is the best kind for the 01 with a full muzzy exhaust?

Factory pro and yes the 1.0 ... "CRB-K67-1.0" is the sctual part number you would want. Comes complete with instructions too, if you are mechanically inclined this is no big deal and very easy.

About 8 HP to be exact.

This magnification of the dyno chart shows the difference between dynoing a ZX-9 with ambient pressure (lower line) and then stuffing 30 millibars of wind into the intake system-a gain of eight horsepower (from 123 to 131 at the peak). The manometer shows that the ZX-9 reaches 30 millibars of airbox pressure at 150 mph. - SportRider.com

I think Jackel must have thought you wanted a jet kit for the 99 carbs, the p/n for the 01 is CRB-K88-1.7-RK and here is a link http://www.factorypro.com/

I ended up finding one cheaper on ebay.

When I bought my bike the previous owner had put a dynojet kit in it. When he did he did not install the plug that plugs off the main air jet restrictor. Of course they figure the main jetting with that restrictor installed, so without it the thing would have had to be running lean. I have read elsewhere that it is a common mistake to leave the plug out because it would be hard to undo and people don't realize how important it would be to the way they have the fuel curve figured. Anyway it took a fair amount of reaserch to figure all that out and when I did I also found out a lot of people liked the Factory Pro and Ivan's kits better. I went with the Factory Pro and the thing has a ton more power especially above 8 grand. Of course that has to be partially because of the plug being left out of the Dynojet kit.

Also I liked that the Factory Pro kit comes with new redesigned emulsion tubes and new size 40 pilot jets. I really liked what they had to say about the redesign on the emulsion tubes (plus it is something that wears out) and I think the size 40 pilot jets are key to eliminating the surge. Even though it may have hurt the fuel milage just a touch.

I don't think it should be tha hard to take off using a screw kinda like with the mix plug, just thread in and pull, but I won't know until it's tried, lol

I agree, but you know how some people are and the silly shortcuts they take

i found out when i was syncing my carbs my number one carb is spitting fuel out of the front( the part you would see when you take off the air filter) so i think my float wont close off. im going to pull the carbs off tomorrow and see if the float has the ring on the rubber part. any other suggestions?

Yeah you should definitely inspect all the float needle and seat parts very carefully, but also I would go with a new fuel filter and flush out all the lines. Tiny particles of dirt can also cause the floats to stick.

Check some other threads in here on cleaning carbs if you get a chance. A lot of good info and something you will see repeated over and over is that a lot of people ended up pulling the carbs apart more than once because what they thought was clean really wasn't quite clean enough.
