carbs

  1. XR
    I have just bought a 05 xr125l it does however need a new carb. I have found carbs that will fit and work but none seem to have the heater like the stock one fitted. If I got a standard carb with no heater will it run ok or so I need one with the carb heater. thank you :)

    My carbs are worn past the point of repair and the only option seems to be some secondhand carbs; have seen them on eBay Germany in the past but not for a while. Haven't posted here for years but thought it might be worth a try. Anyone got some RD03 carbs lurking in the back of the shed? Cheers

    Hi All, I've tried searching but haven't managed to find a definitive answer. Is there a direct replacement carb that would fit a 1999 nx650? I was going to strip and rebuild mine as it's got the usual tickover issue but if there is a better replacement that could be used I may well just go...

Over the xmas period ive removed the tank and popped the choke plunger out and sprayed lots of carb cleaner in the choke plunger location ive checked the carbs for being balanced wand there about...

    Help needed please guys. Decided to try and get my AT running over the festive period. Not a hope. I'd forgotten to drain the fuel when i put it away a couple of years ago. I know, it's a crime to put it away for so long, but i did. Well, it would not start, so i stripped and cleaned the carbs...

    Hi, My 2001 AT has 18,000 miles on it. It runs poorly and stumbles and vibrates a lot. Over the winter I think a carb strip and rebuild is in order. Any thought as to have far should I go? Remove carb?. Strip? Fit new jets, gaskets, etc? Ultrasconic cleaning? Replace diaphragms (if fitted)...

    Hi all, and thank you for your welcome. Can you carb synchronizing gauges, ones that have whatever is needed to connect to the carbs. Also, where is the take off for gauges on the carbs? Many thanks, Pat.

    Hi all, After 10years, I am proud to say that I have bought another Twin. I sold my last one, a RD04, many years ago and deeply regretted the decision. My new one is a 2001, 18,000 mile model. It is in almost perfect condition, and has been parked up since 2003! I have changed to oil etc, but...

    Returning from SW today and about a 100km from house in Belgium I get fuel and when I go to start bike nothing. Hit starter again and it fires but dies, goes on a few more times so I pulled in to a stall. Pulled hose off of filter and lots of fuel flow. I go to pump side towards carb and nothing...

    Hello there! I was rebuilding my carbs while looking at the Honda fiches, and saw that a gasket on my carb is positioned differently. On the fiches, the order is: 28-1-15, so the metal collar (15) sits on the carb, the gasket (1) sits on the metal collar, and the plastic plate (28) sits on the...

    I have a bottom end for a XL600R, it the red magnesium casing complete with crank and con-rod. Also have two pairs of cylinders and a complete set of dellorto carbs (two together) and wish to sell them off. WOuld rather offer them to the community instead of eBay. Will accept a reasonable offer...

    As the title states, is there a chance to adapt the different bits in/around the carburetors from a later model Africa Twin (RD07/a, which are noticeably less thirsty) to an earlier RD03, in order to make it a bit more fuel efficient? I'm not fully aware of their design/layout differences, so...
  17. Transalp
    Good day fellas. Sitting here in Chile waiting for the bike and even with the dramatic increase of beautiful women around me I can't help but also think about the carbs. Turns out they are to blame for the horrendous fuel consumption and poor first gear performance. I've found rebuild kits...
  18. Transalp
    Made a carb sync the other day from a cheapo water level I'd forgotten I owned (:rolleyes:) Anyway, after about twenty minutes of faffing and a some advanced 'zip tie' engineering, my gauge was good to go. Worked a treat, once I was familiar with the sensitivity of the throttle plate screw...

    Hi I had my first test ride following the rebuild last night and another today. I haven't done anything to the insides of the engine. The only thing I changed was the spark plugs. Admittedly I still haven't managed to get the airbox connectors seated properly on the carbs. However it is...
