Carb Jetting question(s)
« on: January 30, 2018, 08:10:41 pm »
When Kawasaki built the C10, did they jet the carburetors different for various altitudes ?     

For example I live 2000 feet above sea level. I figure my 2006 C10 runs rich at my location.
If rode the C10 to the beach at sea level, wouldn't it run leaner or possible better ?

The c-10 came from the factory with fat jetting.

  What SteveJ said!!

    Sisf did my carbs and now they are spot on!! :)  I tried cleaning and adjusting the carbs but never got them any better. Steve's carb service also includes overflow tubes that helps prevent "HYDROLOCK". Which can ruin your engine!! :'(

  It was the best investment I ever made to my C10!!

Bearcat, Unless the local dealer made changes, Kawasaki did not jet for different altitudes.

Your correct; It will run better at lower altitudes.

I'm a flatlander, live in Houston.
Trailered it to Colorado and went for a ride after I arrived.

The loss of power was immediately noticed!!
The reverse would be true if you trailered down out of the mountains.

If you ride down, the power changes gradually as you travel, so, it is less likely you will notice it...

Ride safe, Ted
