Carb Wars: Episode Two, The Impact Hammer Strikes Back!

Posted in Modifications, My Bike by Me on October 29, 2009

DSC00925So one of the two sets of extra carbs I had torn apart is back together, with major help from my pops. He used the best parts from each set and went to the Suzuki dealer for new jets and floats. In the end he compiled one set with 100% good parts. The other set is either going to be tricked out or tossed in the trash. We’ll figure that out after a parts inventory and examination.

The jets are 150s and the air bleeds are 17.5s. The original needles were reinstalled and shimmed with 0.023-inch thick washers between the e-clip and the plastic bushing. No washers were installed above the e-clips. An additional washer may be needed but we’ll wait until after installation for that. The  idle air bleed adjustment is set to two and one-half turns from bottom. All of the new parts are made by Mikuni American Corporation, the manufacturer of the carburetors.

So now I just need to swap them out with what’s on the bike. That will have to wait for a later date.
