Carb Tune

Post by goodoni » Thu May 09, 2013 5:30 am



Hello all,
I'm going to tune my carbs soon and I need to buy the tube extensions that screw into the base of the carb stacks.
I found the tubes on line for a couple of bucks, but the list two sizes.
I have and 84 GL1200, I need to confirm if the screws sizes are 5mm or 6mm.

Thanks all, Ride Safe.

I wouldn't guess...I'd take one down to the Home Depot...They and many other places have a display with sample nuts and bolts to match with.
