Default Running rich

I have recently bought myself ZX7R.It is my first bike and recently went into a corner to fast and binned it.It has since been running rich and was wondering if there was an easy way of adjusting this without a dyno test. Any help or information would be great.Cheers!

That is a bit odd.

I would say to check your vacuum lines to make sure none came loose. Perhaps the choke is sticking now due to your mishap.


It's hard to say, I hope you're able to figure it out.

Good luck, and welcome to KF!

Welcome newtown to the forum.
Hate to hear about ya biffing it
No dyno tests needed. Just go to the basics and figure it out. Such as something may have gotten jarred in the biff right? A float may have gotten stuck, etc. So check your carbs, especially check your carb sync and floats. But yes as said above, check all lines also.
