TM40 cable choke

Right about here, it takes a little tweak to the bracket but ends up under frame line so its safe from boots, branches etc. Also can turn it off with the side of your boot.

Looking for MJ #, PJ # and needle positions.

Thank you.
Same question but maybe from 0-1000' elevation?

This works well for mine -
Pilot = 25
Pilot Air Jet = 1.1
Jet Needle = 9DJ1 third groove down from the top (plastic washer underneath)
Needle Jet = Y4
Main = 140

Mainly ride around 2-4000 ft altitude
Side cover stock
Exhaust stock - uncorked (think the US versions you need to take out the centre of the cap with a hole saw)
Stock ignition

The settings above will get you in the ball park and from there its little steps at a time.

Good luck.

MIKUNI TM 40 idling problems.

Here is my situation:

I am at 2000'. I am running a 22.5 PJ and a 1.2 AJ. The pilot screw is set at three turns open per the manual as a starting place for tuning.

The bike starts fine on the first kick and idles with the choke on. It dies shortly after the choke is turned off.
With the choke off the bike will start momentarily and then die. If I catch it running with the throttle it will rev and is rideable. Coming back down to idle it dies.

I am wondering if it could be the float level, the manual does mention a too high of a float level making idle tuning impossible.


Second question, what is a good initial place to set the idle adjuster. Once it is idling of course.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Can xrr carry weight?

i reckon they can now




the added plate near the bolt mount will stop a lot of the side flex causing the ally to fatigue

nice work poppy

3.2 kgs v 1.1 kgs .. but the 1.1 was just the ally sub no chainroller and bracket

so 2 kilo's more there abouts .. marginal to say the least ..if your loading up a bike ....i would rather have a heavy sub and make the trip or 2kgs less and maybe not make it home

there's aprox 40 hrs in making the first frame .. lets hope the hard work has been done .. test fit it tomorrow then off to the pwdr coaters ...then the real world testing starts

Saved more than that by getting rid of the OEM and fitting an Acro.

One think to consider, should your luggage be heavy, and cause failure, what will the point of failure be?

With the ally subframe, it is the subframe... Shearing the mounting points on the mainframe will be a huge issue (or not?)

Yes that has been discussed .....indeed we thought .. but i would be inclined to think the bolt would shear b4 the mainframe ..by adding the plate it will take most of the sideways flex out we hope and thus a more ridged fixing

it will make it alot user friendly when adding panniers or a rear rack os\f some sort ..trail side repairs possible if they do fail

i think to bust the backbone of the frame out it would be an almighty crash and tail slap ..of wich the ally frame would also be in the poo but if you bust the bolt out of the backbone . wouldnt be riding home anyways .. think me be in a chopper or ambo

Got a point, maybe not make the bolt to too high a grade.
