My Process

All Carburetors have been totally disassembled, assessed for what is required for replacement and repairs, then bead blasted, and ultrasonically cleaned.

  1. After disassembly linkage parts/unusual fasteners where possible are cleaned and replated in bright Zinc. All parts that cannot be replated are cleaned and coated with a high heat ceramic paint and clear to minimise corrosion.
  2. All carburetor tops and bowls screws are replaced with new stainless fasteners, any common type linkage nuts/bolts, screws are replaced with new zinc plated steel fasteners.
  3. I spend between 2-4 hours on each carburetor depending on its condition and what repairs are needed as well as checking all passages are clean and not blocked. All float heights are set to factory specs, jets fitted are close to standard as possible, all needle clips are set to the centre position.

I only use quality repair kits as I found out early on the cheap kits for sale give nothing but problems. I source miscellaneous items either from genuine or quality aftermarket. I check all internal parts that are not in carburetor kits and if I deem them okay they are cleaned and refitted to carburetor, this is to try and keep costs down and also some items can no longer be purchased.

After carburetors are fully reassembled I bench sync them and carry out a leak test. I do my best to make these right so they can be fitted to bike and started with only minor adjustment needed.
