Probably 1 5/8 for the E, rather than 2 turns out.

As all zx9's are all slightly different, and I get fed up having to ask which model & number, as year may not be accurate.

No need to actually shim the needle fella, the dynojet kits have adjustable needles so you can simply move the clip on the needle up and down to get the same effect as shimming it :)

When I shimmed it the blue cap didn't want to lock.
Why would this be, too much shim

That sounds about right. Its a long time since I did the E and if I remember right it would just fit a 0.5mm washer in there without having to do any filing of the blue stem.

Ok , I'll try one less and see what she do, I'm pretty sure my fuel levels need adjusting too.

Ok, I'm in the process of shimming my E1 carbs right now. I found there was already a washer beneath the needle - about .4mm in thickness. Does anyone know, is this standard???

I think it's unlikely that the mod has been done already cus the bike was completely standard when I bought it. Another washer and the blue clip doesn't lock, looks like I'm going to have to get the needle files out...

Well I've got mine done on both the E & F carbs and they're fine, I reckon the needles aren't seating properly or as you're trying to put them in the washer is sliding and jamming the needles, try jiggling about a bit (gently) as I did get one not right one time and as I fired it up afterwards fuel was pi55ing into the carb throat, I removed it and re-seated and jobs a goodun.

Cheers Steve for the diagram.

Ok I had to file down all four spring seats before they would clip into position and stay there. No amount of jiggering and pokering would get them to fit standard, maybe as the washers are 0.6mm thick rather than 0.5mm. Extra material was removed to maintain the standard clearance above the needle, allowing the small spring to do its work.

I also reset mixture screws to 1, 5/8s, I had them at 2 turns out to try and cure off/on snatchiness.
This has done the trick, bike feels great after quick spin, will have to wait for a proper test though as it's snowing out.
Also people on a budget beware, price of 100 washers from screwfix is up to 44p :lol:

ARe these the right washers?

http://www.screwfix.com/p/flat-washers- ... -100/17025

Tried to use the code Yorkie originally used and it didn't work? THey're the only washers I can seem to find that are M3 Light and in a pack of 100?
