Just a few bits and bobs on this page the rest are sub menued below

Draining the carb bowls (Mikuni)

Good idea to drain out the carb bowls as part of your routine maintenance, these bikes aren't getting any younger and the tanks rust and 15 years worth of crap has been sucked down those pipes !!! The Mikuni design is a bit pants as the drain hole will just throw fuel over the engine, I found I needed to funnel it away with a bit of plaster beading...





Fuel stabilizer or fuel additive carbs cleaner

If I lay up one of the bikes over winter I like to add some Motul fuel stabilizer just for piece of mind, I also like to a few times a year run a bit of Redex in the tank to try and keep those tiny passages clear in the carbs..seems to have worked soo far.
