    First Timer !!

    Hello guys, my first post. I have an 02 rex 12R and when I got it, it had been sitting for several months. I rebuilt the carbs with a all balls kit, but I don't remember what size the jets were. I know the float levels are off and plan to redo them as well as the mixture screws. I want to remove the air box and use pod filters, but I hear I need block of plates for valve cover. I am doing research and will except any advice. My name is Bubba, from central California. Well post some pictures. Cheers.

    Welcome aboard and congrats on the bike!

    Forget the All Balls stuff. Save yourself a lot of headache and just send your carbs here:

    Welcome. If you are going to remove the airbox and run pod filters you are going to need a proper jet kit to re-jet the carbs. Big difference in air flow between the airbox and pods.

    WELCOME ABOARD Bubba... CONGRATS on your new to you ZRX

    There are threads about what jetting to use with pods so you should get it right the first time or very close!
    As TG said, you'll need to purchase a jet kit!

    You running a header? If not, you'll need to take that into play when jetting but I'm sure that info is out there for sure.
    ZRX24 is a MASTER at finding threads on special topics plus he help love to help Well it's showing off how smart he is but we don't let him know that

    I highly suggest you purchase a +4 ignition timing advancer plate from KWICK it is the cheapest cost items for improved performance you can buy and one of the simplest to install.

    Lots of GREAT people here so don't be shy and their are no stupid questions so ask... were family here

    ENJOY and Good Luck with your new toy!
