Keihin carb problem
Someone sems to have glued carb float bowls on with somethng yellow-guessing weatherstrip adhesive. Anyone know what removes it?
Know if there is a local (Spok) supplier of Keihin carb parts?

Since I'm on here, how do you get the dirt out of the sparkplug wells before pulling plugs?

Honda dealers have some parts. Wash the bike before opening it up. Then compressed air. High pressure air. NOT a can of air.

You may try a 'heat gun' to loosen the glue.

If it's a old bike join a forum for your bike. People on there will know who and where to get parts from.

I'd try a little acetone on that glue.

Or maybe some carburetor dip. I've got some if you want to try it.

HIGH pressure air-that's what I was afraid answer would be.
I've got tire inflater air pressure

maybe I'll take you up, after all worst it can do is clean outside of bowls.

You might try some brake cleaner to loosen the stuff? And you can get parts here:
