Carb

I am trying to produce more power with the equipment I have. I have an 88,with 33 inch tires, welded rear, as you can imagine pulling power, or hill climbing is not at its best. I have a stock carb, is it possible to remove or connect vacum lines or even re-jet the carb for a little more power. I have another post asking about gear reduction also. Any suggestions on how to increase your power without buying something new would be very helpful. thanks

Re: Carb

the pony carb is the cheapest alternative. you wont get all that much out of the stock hitachi and reliability is somewhat questionable.

Re: Carb

Welcome to the board, stranger. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
The cheapest route for better performance if you're gonna stay with the stock carb, is the carberator vent tube. According to RockyRoad Outfitters:
"The world's cheapest engine performance mod. This Suzuki factory part was released as a part of a Suzuki Technical Service Bulletin. And we quote, "...Samurais may exhibit a hesitation/flat spot, in any gear, when in acceleration from partial to open throttle." Basically, eliminates the flat spot in carburated Samurais which results in a loss of power. Super easy to install, takes about 5 minutes. The absolute best bang for your buck when it comes to improving your engine's performance.... $11.97" http://www.rocky-road.com/suzuki.html
Keep an eye on ebay, too, Weber carbs come up from time to time, and the Pony carb is also a good swap. Either one will add lots of power. An aftermarket header will give you a boost too.
BTW, I'm running 33's also, but I've added 5.38 diff gears - can crawl over lots of stuff! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Good luck!
