Bored and waiting for Randakk kits...w/pic!

Postby SteveB123 » Sun Feb 17, 2013 5:55 pm



Minor carb disassembly, having a look in float bowls, etc. Nothing seems particulary clogged, the expected grunge in float bowls and vacuum chambers. I suspect the vac chambers have the worst of it.
Still, I don't want to start carb linkage disassembly before I have Howard's book in hand....what to do, what to do.
Well, threw a couple of float bowls into the ultrasonic for a bit.....and cast an eye on those intake maifolds.
Hmm.
Something always happens when I get into a "hmm" mood.

Red is the fastest colour.

nice looking intake manifolds SteveB123. Will defiantly make the bike faster!

Did you just mask off or remove the rubbers before the paint?

Masked only. Pretty sure any attempt at separation will mean destruction.



Damn camera doesn't do these justice.
