do the carb boots wear on the carb or motor side?

I'm assuming motor side but just wanted to double check as I forgot how they were and I want to turn them around(after this wintergreen oil soak)

Re: brake kit oil seals are a bit too big. are they supposed to be?

never mind. I had set my ebay profile with an 82 cb650, which apparently isn't an 82 nighthawk(cb650sc) which is whqt I have. what does that mean? special :D somehow?

Re: brake kit oil seals are a bit too big. are they supposed to be?

Is one of them the one that came out of it? It doesn't fit either? no, the dirty one that looks almost in fits perfect, obviously, and the other would have to be forced somehow IF possible. i dont think so. im thinking with my model being a bit rare there may have been another slightly different se...

Re: question about bench syncing.

doesn't the throttle need to be open a bit to idle tho?? It will be "open," but just a tiny bit. The black knob can be screwed out so far that the bike would not idle. If that is the case, screw it in until the idle is where it needs to be (screwing it in opens the butterflies). wow, okay...

Re: question about bench syncing.

alright fine Ill get one. and my carbs better be off. and a couple times a year at that. don't like tools wasting space lol. Get the bike running first, then decide if you need to buy one. Maybe bench syncing will be good enough with VB carbs, I don't know until I mess about with my own. I have use...

Re: question about bench syncing.

I bench synced the first few bikes I rebuilt and they seemed to run fine. With your VB carbs, the sync only effects the idle. Once you get on the throttle, the sync no longer matters. I was, however, pleasantly surprised by how much more smoothly the engine idled once I got a vacuum tuner. I've nev...

Re: is this hid kit good?

thanks guys. yeah, I'll just start with the head light since I want a nice view at night and then go from there. I read you should just replace the other bulbs that are always on with hid/led(still learning). And maybe I'll just leave the blinkers as they are and avoid all that extra thinking. Hopef...

Re: question about bench syncing.

Hi juntjoo, I can't comment on VB carbs yet as mine are on my "to do" list, but on my PD slide carbs I did a bench sync by raising the idle screw and inserting a small drill bit under the number 2 slide (base slide with no adjuster), then lowering the idle screw until the drill bit was a ...
