ZXR flatslide needle codes

Post by greggo » Tue Nov 17, 2009 12:14 am

HOwdy,

I've strayed from CBR land to ask a question...

Does anyone have a table that shows what the needle codes for the ZXR flatties equate to in length, taper, etc?

Greggo, all the details are in the keihin catalogue. I have plenty of photocopied spares, PM me if you want me to post you a freebie.

The last 3 digits refer to the taper, length of untapered section, and needle diameter by the looks of it:

Been there, checked that, not relevant.

The needles are marked 98D76

When I google these needles all I get are japanese pages referring ZXR400SP race bikes.

Hmmm.

I think maybe keihin needles from oem manufacturers were only stamped with the bike factories internal codes and didn't use keihins ID system.

There's a copy of the 91sp (flatslides) kit manual here:
