Keihin carb problem

Discussion in 'Mechanical & Technical' started by strangerin, Aug 3, 2012.


  1. 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?
     
  2. First question, I don't know. Second, air compressor to blow it out.

    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.

  6. 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.
