"California Carb,s".....

Postby n5926g » Thu Sep 10, 2015 11:52 am



Afternoon guys,Have been wresteling with a vacuum line issue over the past week or so,seems I have a #1 line that comes out of the #4 intake port (VERTICAL inlet) that has no home....I have installed a new(rebuilt) set of carbs that came from evidently a "California bike"...There is a hose(Green i think) that comes up from the carbs that I THOUGHT went to the airbox....Thing is,the original carb set didnt have this hose....Im thinking I may have found the home for that #1 line,and perhaps just "plug off" that other one???????? has anyone seen this?...Bike runs great,and Im assuming this was for some of that pollution "stuff".....

Want to be sure I have this correct...I can leave the airbox alone,and just plug off that #1 hose? :?
