    More importantly, make sure the throttle valves are in sync with each other. The last two carb setups I’ve rebuilt they were out of adjustment

    I’m very meticulous when it comes to carb rebuilding. Keeping surfaces and parts clean and flushed before reassembly is something I work hard on. Yes, making sure you have no leaks is why I test....

    Did you pressure test the carbs once on the rack and ready to install? It’s the same way you test for pop off. About 35psi and see if it holds. Everyone always recommends only genuine Mikuni kits....

    Agreed. Would a bad check valve or the gas tank not holding pressure cause this?

    interesting that everyone is saying thatís the most restrictive part of the intake but it worked for you. I didnít want to remove it for the reason of what itís there for. That makes me feel better....

    Rejetting....can’t afford $$$ for flame arrestors at the moment. Also removing accelerator pump cam.

    No need to drill holes in the cover. I've already drilled holes around the bottom of the piece that mounts to the carbs. (as seen in photos) Everyone suggests removing the arrestor screen completely....
  14. Using stock intake on a 66v. Carb upgrade and accelerator pump disconnect.

    Someone tell me why this wouldnít work. Doing Oside Billís carb upgrade recipe. Not comfortable with removing the arrestor so something is better than nothing. Just canít spend the money on...
  15. What to expect-initial start up with rebuilt carburetors

    I have a 2000 XL 1200 limited (95hrs) with the 66v PV motor. New rebuilt SBT motor. Did a break-in last fall. Motor has only a few hours on it. The carbs were rebuilt by same guy who installed the...

    I tried the holes in the brass inserts. Ended up using a heat gun. Then I just replaced everything with a later model bracket. http://greenhulk.net/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=459849&stc=1

    I’ve started rebuilding the carbs with the I series Mikuni kits. The spring that comes with the kit is listed as the 115gm. Looks to be the same size as what was previously in the carbs. I have...

    So if the D-Plate requires the additional 1/4Ē screw out adjustment does that mean the center carb should only be 1 turn out? The factory position is 3/4 out. Must be because of the accelerator pumps?
  19. Got it out and yes the o ring is in bad shape....

    Got it out and yes the o ring is in bad shape. Explains why it was frozen in place. This confirms my mechanic didn’t replace it and I’m certain this is why I’m experiencing a bog from 0-25 throttle....

    It won’t come out and now that it’s marked up from the needle nose it looks like I’ll be replacing. Any ideas to get it out?

    I’m assuming the bottom of the seat? Does it come out with a needle nose? With a little twist pull?
  24. How do I know what needle size I have?

    Thank You. I’ve been searching for days. Just want to keep everything stock. The motor is new. It actually runs really well except for a bog down when accelerating. Checking the mixture screws while...
