BA80 is correct in saying the rail does NOT have to be removed to remove the caps off the top of the vacuum diaphrams. He is also correct with the spring location for the needle retainers. I would advise not seperating the carbs, unless they are known for sure to be totally wacked internally. Doing this will require a whole array of new pieces(o-rings,etc.) and a new language learned.

i'm always careful around petrochemicals. i've got 3K gallons of diesel behind me atm. nonetheless i thank you for the concern. the windshield you have looks to fit well and seems clean w the lines of the bike. i'm going to check JC Whitney and price it. this is becoming a more expensive project than i anticipated, but the only NEEED as of now is the air filter.

I really like the king/queen seat you have there. I had one on my '80cb750k and it was nice for the long hauls. Maybe I'll look into one for the XS later in the year. For now, I'll settle with my backrest.

Whitney has those too. I've got the reusable foam Unifilter in both my scoots.

Thank you CW. Everybody else gives me crap about that seat.:( Yes, it is great to tie stuff on for long trips. I have a pillow I always take along for a backrest. :cool:

It's not the seat Greg, it's the skid mark down the center. :D:p








Well, maybe it is the seat, a little. :rolleyes:

Hey all. I am having this same problem. Soaking them in a off the shelf bucket carb cleaner because they are really bad. I was wonder how you did with those carbs soaking in Gas. My #1 carb is so stuck at this point it doesn't move at all. I would rather not have to buy a second set of carbs and piece them together, but it looks like that is something I will have to do.

You might as well buy new shaft seals now and just replace them, that will solve all the problems.

Often times those gallon cams of carb dip will ruin (more rhan they already are) old shaft seals and cause air leaked.

Yeah I was thinking I may have to get new seals. :eek: There is other issues with this set of carbs I got that I need to soak them for. This is going to be a completely new carb set by the time I get done. Grrr. Alas, I love doing it.

This was the thread that made me fund the one last Issue that was the cause of my problems. Those springs being on the wrong side of the needl made the bike run like crap! And now she runs great!
