So, the carbs are on and functional (we will test later!). The next big task is to modify the fairing so that the carbs can breathe. Carbs 1 & 2 are about 2 cms away from the fairing sides, so probably OK, but the top ones i.e. 3 & 4 are touching the fairing, so will have to be liberated!
I used my best judgement to centre the holes and then drilled with a circular (plaster board) drill to make the big holes the same size as the bell mouths. Because the carb 3 is angled up, it is in a slightly different place than the carb Nr. 4. so not symetrical....
So now I have all carbs that can breathe, the question now is how do I protect the bell mouths from low pressure zones created as the bike moves along, I would like to get some still/protected air around the bell mouth area if possible.
All suggestions of putting a yogurt pot over the end will be deleted immediately!
Next job - see if she starts and program the ignition to enable easy starting and good running.
Just for the record the carbs are setup with 280/290s front/back. They originally came with 240's in them.
