:O not sure what you mean by sliders? The only 'sliders' on the carbs are the slides that the main jet is attached to...and you shouldn't ever have to drill into those suckers lol.

Only "drilling" needed to be done to install a jet kit would be to drill into the caps for the pilot screw, if yours is a U.S. model that is. All other models shouldn't have the caps for those jets installed.
I've even heard of people just taking a small punch and hammering it in the middle of the cap with a good hit or two, taking a hook scribe and pulling the cap out.

That's the only thing I can think of you would have to drill out for just a jet kit...

Do you know what you are talking about, rhetorical question..........the answer is no!

The main jets are not attached to the slides, and the rest of your "advise" is not useful or accurate either........
Please walk away from the mechanical section and never return unless asking questions that those who actually have knowledge will answer.

Are you asking if you have to drill the slide lift holes on the 2000 or the 94?
Is the 94 a Ninja 600 (c model) or a ZX6 (e model)

The factory jet kit is much better than the dyno jet...fyi

To be honest, I grew up working on cars and trucks but when it came time to mess with the carbs I just took them out to get done. There is a performance shop by me that for $500 they did the jetting, synced the carbs (cleaned them as well obviously), new plugs, and threw in on the dyno to get all the adjustments right.

My point is that for me personally the fact that I had any questions about doing it turned me to seek professional help. Having the bike run top notch is of huge importance to me lol.

Quite often paying a professional who you trust is worth whatever the cost.

No doubt everyone has something they are good at, but that something is rarely working on their motorcycle!

if one considers they may well spend 10+ hours doing whatever they are going to try for the first or second time, and a professional only charges say $400
well if you have a $20/hr job, you could do what you are good at (assuming you actually are good at your job) and stay at work those 10 hours, and you are only out $200 to know it was done correctly and not be like the guy who fucked up his cam chain tensioner, or the guy who blows up his engine trying to adjust his valves, or have a bike that runs like shit and you spend another 20 hors missing days of riding trying to get your jetting sorted out.

And while I consider jetting pretty easy, and the kits come with instructions, it does not mean that any/every tomdickstupid can actually accomplish the task of installing a jet kit properly let alone actually making the proper adjustments.
FWIW

I agree 100% I did hear jetting is not hard but if nothing else the piece of mind (let alone the other tweeks) was well worth the money.

My buddy bought his 94 ninja brand new back in 94 and has had it torn apart and jetted over the years. Mine being a 2000 zx6r is a tiny bit newer he can jet it he asked me to get tips on my model . not getting to many so far. My dyno kit will be here in a few days I guess we will figure it out.
