Hi guys, I have had some troubles with my bike in the past and found out that there was rust and paint flakes in my fuel tank, so I grabbed a new one from a wreckers (clean inside) and put it on, the bike went great for 10 minutes or so, then all of a sudden it dies because the carbs are all gummed up (ive had the problem a few times before so recognize it) there must have been just enough crud in the filter or something to clog the carbs. So I got a new filter and have pulled my carbs out and have a few questions for you guys :grin: This is gonna be hard to describe cause I dont know what the bits are called lol, but on the right hand side carb hole dealy, the plastic thing with the diaphragm on the end doesnt go right up... i can still see a lip of plastic when i push it up, but the other side goes right up and is flush with the metal body. is this normal? or should i pull the cap off and check it out? Also I couldnt get the float bowl covers off (where i suspect the crud is) because the screws just wont budge and I am just stripping the heads off them. so i got as much cleaner in there as i could and left them on, will this still work? i have also left the carbs in a bucket of petrol with some carb cleaner addative mixed in too will this help? and do you guys reckon i should pull all the hoses off before i leave it over night? it still has the idol adjustment hose thing there and two rubber hoses will these be damaged by the chemicals? Sorry if that was hard to understand Im tired not feeling very eloquent right now, but i appreciate any help you guys can send my way. cheers.
