Re: 79 carb choke linkage broke!

Found it straight away, unfortunately the pictures have gone due to that lousy Photobucket crapping out last year, but the description and a crude sketch are still there.

It seems like a viable alternative if you couldn't find a replacement.

Re: 79 carb choke linkage broke!

I have seen somewhere on the interwebby where the choke shaft was fixed by welding an extra piece on to the shaft and a lever was then bolted on to the extended part to create a manual choke lever. I'll see if I can find it again and post a link. Please bear in mind that it is nearly bedtime in the ...

Re: Where to chop exhaust?

CP, have you actually had this bike running properly? I would delay chopping your pipes until the bike is running fine so that if there is a problem, you can't blame it on your lack of back pressure from your exhausts.

Re: Carb valve things

Ok, so if I "T'd" them all together into one line in the middle (open ended) to keep dust/dirt out, would it hurt? Why would you bother? If one of your carbs had an overflow problem then you wouldn't know which one it was until you pulled the T off. I think that is probably one of the rea...

Re: Carb valve things

Yes there would have been pipes attached when new, this is where you would attach your clear tube when checking your fuel level with the clear tube method.

Re: Carb valve things

Those little nipples are your float bowl overflows. If your carbs get too much fuel going in then this is where the excess fuel will come out, this is to prevent your engine filling up with fuel which can be very bad for your engine. Too much fuel in the carbs can be caused by a sticking float needl...
