FCR-tuning luggage minimum

In my last blog post, I did something a little different, or rather I minimized the amount of luggage I brought with me.
Since I was squeezing it, I will show you how much less it is.

FCR-tuning-AS Uotani SP2 ignition timing [1] 22/06/12

You don't need many tools if you just need to change the jet needle or touch the AS.
I would be happy if beginners or those who are not good at handling motorcycles would be aware of this.

Explanation with photos

This is the item I brought out this time.
Main jet and accelerator pump diaphragms, bolts, jet needle clips, etc.
Don't pack excessive tools to deal with unforeseen situations.
It fits in a small tool box. It's for storage, so it's not very strong, but I bought it at a 100 yen shop.

The straight diameter of the acceleration pump diaphragm and the jet needle you are looking for are different.
I have decided to do something and am bringing it out this time. Put it in a bag or case
I separate them so they don't get mixed up.

Main jet set.
I have purchased 6 sets of 6 stages from 115 to 128 for single cylinder. This is not a genuine Keihin product.
I'm very happy because it's cheaper than buying one each and it comes with a case. I brought it out this time just to be sure, but since I was looking for a large size around 135, I didn't use it this time.

This is a jet needle clip.
If you lose one when replacing it, you will not be able to drive it, and there is no substitute for it, so I always make sure to have at least one on hand. The reason why it is wrapped in tape is to prevent it from getting lost inside the case. I don't lose it as long as I can concentrate, but when I was repeatedly attaching and detaching the FCR, I lost concentration and it flew off somewhere while I was working.

I don't really like it, but I keep tools and other things in my side bag. tunings are mostly done on the road, so there is a limit to what you can do without bringing tools. I wear this equipment because I hate wearing it.

I carry additional items depending on the work I do.

Store in backpack

I usually bring out my backpack and set it up. Contains a screwdriver for PS adjustment, vacuum gauge, sub tank, etc.
Contains tools that generally involve synchronization.
This time, the theme is minimal, so I didn't bring anything.

I try to fit it in fairly neatly.
I have a large box.
Others are pliers and a long Phillips screwdriver.
I carry around things like that.
It might be a good idea to bring something like a box wrench, but since I'm not leading a touring trip sponsored by a motorcycle shop, I try to bring only what I need.

Work scene

It is equipped with two triple carburetors. In most cases, work is done with the tank taken down.
There are six cylinders, so I am very conscious of not forgetting to tighten any screws when I lose concentration.
FCR is an old model. The only good thing about it is that it is easy to put on and take off.
There are many advantages such as adjusting the throttle wire is difficult.

FCR-For Beginners-Hex Wrench

A 3mm and 4mm hex wrench will suffice. Please choose the object that is shaped like a ball.
Also, there is no problem if you have three in total: short and long for 4mm and long for 3mm.
The reason you need a short length of 4mm is because a long length would be too long to remove the funnel.
Rather than having a set of hexagonal wrenches, I prefer to carry only three dedicated hex wrenches.
The reason for this is that having an unnecessarily large hexagonal wrench nearby will reduce work efficiency when you are trying to find something loose or looking for it. When tuning up, I try to make it as comfortable as possible.
There's a lot of repetition of the same tasks, so if you get mentally exhausted, it's no fun at all.
The trick to improving work efficiency is to separate the FCR tunings from the loaded tools as much as possible.
I'm not saying you should definitely separate them, but I'd like to keep them separate at first.
Work efficiency will be higher if you consider workability in your own way and then use it as a loading tool.

FCR-tuning minimum luggage【summary】

This is how I summarize the jets and tools.
There must be a better way. What I am posting is just an example.
It might be a good idea to write down what goes where.
Currently, I am not providing accurate information as I am adding more jets and reconsidering the storage method.
Separated with cases and containers.
I have a strong feeling that this article is written for beginners.
I would be happy if you could use it as a reference.
I hope everyone has a good FCR life!
See you again!
