Hi-resolution Carb picture required

Post by Maz »



Hi all,
I am writing an article for the Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club (VJMC) magazine in the UK and I need a high resolution image of a set of GL1000 carbs, propped up on end to check float heights. I rebuilt my own carbs but some of my pictures were lost due to a corrupted memory card in my camera. If any of you have such a photo, or have a set of carbs stripped down and would be prepared to take a picture for me, I would be eternally grateful. I have included a low resolution image below to show what I am after (this image borrowed from Randakk's blog), but I need it in much higher resolution to print in the magazine.


Thanks in advance,
Maz

I do not have the required pictures.
I do have enclosed pictures of (re)checking the actual fuel level height (see fluid level in plastic tubes) of the 4 chambers after that the float heights were set conform the procedure / your picture as well as some general carb. arrangement pictures and the final result (cpl. GL1000 K1 1975).

Rudolph, you are a STAR!
Those will do very nicely, plus it's always nice to see more images of your amazing restoration. My '75 is clean, but yours is clinically clean. I know how much time and effort (and money) you put into it and it's an absolute credit to you.
Many thanks,
Maz
