I Hate F&%(ing Carburettors!!!!

Post by Logi on Sat Feb 22, 2014 7:17 pm

Been working on my old GT,


spent a wee bit of time with my ultrasonic cleaner with the carbs, nice & clean Smile




Managed to get them on with 30 year old inlet rubbers(if someone could come up with a rubber softener? scratch  ) with mucho swearing.


The fuckin float's jammed shut on one  Mad Mad Mad 

Hey ho, tomorrow is another day  Crying or Very sad

Do it right do it once  Exclamation a warm air gun works wonders with a little 3 in 1 oil.

warm rubber is much more supple and are the manifold to head adaptors bolted on if so take them off as well.

I love HONDA.
my bike has sat with fuel in the carbs, 1/2 ish tank...
its been giving me starting issues end of last year. battery off tested= OK, starter relay/main fuse tested= OK & the starter motor tested OK....
i am sure everyone hates those two words...... Bad earth!
cleaned up all the wiring refitting starter etc back on, hunted down the 2 other earths & cleaned them..
tank back on... took a 1/2 a min to get fuel back in to the carbs.. 1/2 a min later my bike was on choke running on its own. left it to warm up 10 mins. Very Happy

then proceeded to strip all the panels off it & forks off as need to strip & service/replace bits.
getting there.
