Can someone recommend a baseline setting for my single vm 32 on a tr6r, I'm running straight pipes with baffles here in central Montana. Jetting and clip position please.
Thanks

I have the Victory tuning manual at home, I'll dig it out tonight if no one else answer by then


When given the choice between two evils I picked the one I haven't tried before

I ordered the mikuni kit from MAP, It says it's pre-jetted to triumph tr6. It came with a 220 main, a 40 pilot jet, a 6DA3 needle, and a P0 needle jet, with a 3.0 slide. I have the clip on 2nd groove. Is this sounding right to anyone

Pilot jet is quite a bit different, only thing you can do is try it! If the jetting is too rich/lean ask MAP to swap jets for you.


Now let’s all have a beer beerchug

68’ A65 Lightning “clubman”
71’ A65 823 Thunderbolt (undergoing restoration)
67’ D10 sportsman (undergoing restoration)
68’ D14 trials (undergoing transformation)

Mikuni's work great when jetted correct. The victory book will get them so they are safe, you know, not to lean or fat. However, this is just a baseline. You'll need to find yourself a shop that deals in mikuni parts. Thus you'll have to take an afternoon to plan your jetting. Remember all parts you buy are yours for the keeping, do plan to spend a few bucks. Just because its in the victory book doesn't mean it will be perfect, you will have to jet it. I have a BSA that I built to mimic one I did a few years back and set the carbs up exactly the same, what do you know, had to jet them differently. Seems like there is always a variance. P.S. if you do not know how, learn how to read spark plugs.

Thanks guys, looks like there's no easy way out. I'm just gonna have to buy a few extra plugs and plug check each circuit. Just thought someone who rides a tr6r had my magic numbers. I bought this project for 900 bucks, It's a Frankenbike for sure, but half the enjoyment is tinkering.
Thanks
