    General CBR XX Discussion
    Yo peeps, Here's a wierd one - I had my 97 carb Blackbird on an angle (used a 2inch bit of wood under the center stand to lean it over). The idea being to check any leaks from a recent J-B weld repair of the collector box. So I started the bike with choke and no leaks :-) exhaust fumes normal...

  3. No Injector Ground Pulse on 2000 BB

    Engine / Airbox / Exhaust / Fuel Delivery
    Hey guys! I've already done the Loom Fix, just FYI. I'm absolutely perplexed right now. I was having problems with my 2000 Blackbird cutting out, which ended up being the kill switch. After I fixed it, it ran perfectly... For one day. The next day I tried to start it, it just kept spinning. It...
  4. Vacuum Hose Help Please D:

    General CBR XX Discussion
    So i understand how the vacuum system works on the petcock and where it connects to on the back of it. However I am unsure of where the hoses themselves go after that, especially with having a 3 way connector on there. One hose is hanging out the side of the bike. Is there any sort of diagram or...
  5. Switching a 1997 to Fuel Injected?

    Engine / Airbox / Exhaust / Fuel Delivery
    Hey all, so I am the proud new owner of a 97 Blackbird that is clean and mean, but I'm looking to make it even meaner. I looked into switching it over to fuel injection, I found a manufacturer who makes kits, but at the price of about 4 grand for everything included. Is there another way? Maybe...

  9. Vortex V3 Keyless Fuel Cap

    Body / Paint / Electrical / Lights
    Anybody use one of these or anything similar? My biggest concern when spending money on parts like this is I wanna make sure that the pressure stays good inside the tank. The V3 description shows that it does. Anybody else use any? My lock is starting to get a bit weird so I'm thinking about...
  10. Flash Lube additive...?

    Engine / Airbox / Exhaust / Fuel Delivery
    Hi XXians,My brother put me on to Flash Lube, which I previously thought was just for leaded (super) engines when using unleaded. It's pretty concentrated stuff... 1ml per litre of fuel. He uses it in his 1999 R6 and Mitsubishi Magna & claims better engine performance and increased fuel economy...

    Engine / Airbox / Exhaust / Fuel Delivery
    I left my BB open and in the rain, a couple months later and it wont turn on. I sprayed a lot of carburetor cleaner and poured fuel down the throttle body. Now it turns on but doesn't stay on. Cleaned the top and bottom portion of the carburetor (IN PICTURE - #5 AND #18) but that didnt do...

    Engine / Airbox / Exhaust / Fuel Delivery
    Hi everyone. My bike has great throttle response, mid range and all, but my fuel range is shot to hell. I can barely squeeze out more than 250 Kilometers out of a full tank, with warning light....So I suspect that my bird has been re-jetted, because my exhaust tips are black, and If I run my...
