Default new topic...carbs!

OK, so i finally got around to disassembling the carbs this morning, and first off, the slides were completely seized, i spray some wd40 into there to let them sit, and decide to go ahead and remove the float bowl, and lo, there are stalactites forming in there.

it's really terrible looking in there.



i'm a cost-effective guy, the bike is far from original, i've already bought "rebuild" kits for each one, but i'm pretty sure, i'm going to need a little more than what's in the kit, and i don't mind returning the new kits i bought.

so what say you, rebuild or get another set?

anyone tried other carbs, like a stock banshee pair?


also still looking for input on the front rotor spacer...

Careful with those carbs from Asia. I had one I bought for my CB100 that literally broke apart in my hands because the casting was so bad. It was also a "Keihin". I put that in quotes because it was obviously a fake. I ended up buying a vintage carb and rebuilt it.

new progress update posted over on the build thread...i really need to work harder at taking more pics, or have a friend do it.

soooo, the next big thing is going to be the rotor spacer, need to get that sorted. after talking to an engineer buddy, having long bolts pass all the way thru the spacer will be about the same as bolting the spacer to the hub and bolting the rotor to the spacer, except cheaper and less complicated! i like simple solutions.

speaking of spacers, i need to make one for the upper triple still, as well as space the rear wheel and caliper hanger back there, and have the rotor narrowed, diameter shrunk, and cross drilled.

need to make the stingers and silencers, and plan out and build silencer supports.

need to order the CDI as well as work out either narrowing the sprockets to 520 width or ordering all-new...

still so much to do!!
