I Ride: 97k '07 ZZR600, 2014 Ninja 300, 37k 89 FZR400 racebike, 56k 06 ZX6R track only, 21k 97 ZX6R F model
2002 ZX6R and 2005-2008 ZZR600 carbs are the same.........
2001 and older are 1mm smaller ID
but as mentioned those are commifornia spec carbs with fuel cut offs if tipped over
Even those Ebay cards for $135 are going to need at minimum to be cleaned and I would highly suggest replacing the o-rings (so if you did it yourself you would still be 200ish or if you pay someone- you could be 350-400ish)
I bet for the same monies or less you can actually get your carbs cleaned and working well (and by the time you pay someone and buy some parts and even with shipping -if you shipped) I doubt you end up over 350)
Take off one of the float bowls and take a pick close up enough to view easily to see how bad they look inside
I mean if you wanted them professionally cleaned and rebuilt I would do it, parts is parts though and I can only speculate what parts it would need
--do the slides slide up and down now?
--are the needles all green when you do lift the slide and look inside?
-- what does the inside look like
just for some example pricing.......
needle/seat and new o-ring is about $25 x 4 of them.......... but if all you need is the 4 o-rings you are about $8 for the 4
float bowl o-rings are about $7 each x 4
the fuel line junction o-rings between the carbs are maybe another $10
loose carbs that aren't horrific I generally charge $150 for a inline 4 to clean
just a guess but if you had $25 shipping each way............. that gets you right at $350 with new needle/seats & the other requisiste o-rings or $280ish with just all new o-rings
Do you have a jet kit or anything in yours?
woohoo we are having fun now
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!
