    dual carb tuning

    Just put my 96sxi back in the water after 15ish years. Tore it down with a fine tooth comb. Starts like new. Runs like new. I almost have the carbs set correctly. It's dual carb and I'm having trouble accessing the screws in between the carbs. Anyone have any secrets?

    I was able to get to the screws with a very thin 10" flat blade screw driver. It was on a slight angle but it worked for me

    Ditto.
    Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

    Re: dual carb tuning

    I would take the carbs apart over the winter and put the brass t fitting adjusters in each carb, that's what I'm doing on my 800sxr carbs this winter.

    Re: dual carb tuning

    I just rebuilt them in July. I'm not taking them apart anytime soon I went to Harbor Freight and got an assortment of smallish screwdrivers. I found the recommendation for the 10" screwdriver very helpful. You can get it underneath the back carb and it goes in relatively straight. That was the part I had trouble with.. visualizing that I could get the screwdriver underneath.
