For sure a good idea but I didn’t have one and it was 90 degrees here in the AZ desert when I did mine.

Make buddies with you’ll local heating and cooling company. Get a squirrel cage blower out of an old furnace. They move a ton of air. I have a couple. Great for keeping the shop cool also.

Anxiously waiting for the choke plungers from Zed1015. Today I pulled the bowls because I had a little fuel seepage from what I’m hoping were old dried out gaskets, even though they were new. While in there, I thought I had cleaned out all the little passages but discovered that I missed the choke rod/tube that goes down to the bottom of the bowl. On the end of that tube is a very small hole that I think anyone that is going thru their carbs should check. Mine were clogged. Very easy to clean them out.

Good to hear that. I’m like a kid at Christmas waiting for them.

Got the plungers back today. A big thanks to zed1015 for doing this and also for allowing me to have the 4 top clips I also needed from a seller also in the UK sent to him and he put them in the same envelope. Way cool of zed.Ok, before and after pics. Pretty big difference. When I get the bike back together I’ll post the results.

The choke plungers are in and I must say, the bike runs better. Smoother now off the throttle, the backfires seem to be gone and plugs are not so black. It starts very quickly now as well

A big thanks to all who helped. I learned a ton about these carbs. Merry Christmas!
