Carb

Postby Silverfox » April 6th, 2014, 5:55 pm

Is there an overflow hose on the carb. I looked and the pics from the manual and didn't see one. Also ie there a drain plug one can get to. I want to spray some crb cleaner to try to clean carb without tearing the bike apart. Thanks for your help..

Is the bike running at all? If it is you could put some Carb cleaner in the tank and see if that helps.
We just did this with my brothers bike and it didnt work, too gummed up.
It isn't that hard to get the carb off so you can spray it with cleaner really good and then blow it out.
I did this with mine without taking any of the jets out and it worked, then I added some Seafoam to the tank and it keeps running better and better.

Good luck!!

I'll try that. I put Berrymens B12 in the tank before winter hit. It was running then. I'll try what you said. It's beginning to get warm here in Mich..

With this ethanol gas fuel stabilizers don't help much, I was cranking my bike every couple of weeks and it still gummed up. Luckily there is a place that sells pure guess right by my house,that is all I will be putting in it now.

Thanks for the help. I used carb cleaner and warmer temps and a prayer. It finally started and is running. Now that its running maybe its time to move on and sell the old girl. Or if I ride it maybe it will change my mind. Thanks again.......
