Pictures of how I cleaned and adjusted the carburetors on my 1985 1986 1987 Suzuki GSX-R750 motorcycle.
Getting the carbs out was relatively easy. Just did that. Now I will figure out what carbs I have and see what's inside.
But first, lets pay some bills:
Here are some carburetors, out of the bike and up on the bench. Yep. Carburetors.
They are full of gas.
I am tired of spilling fuel onto myself a little bit at a time
every time I work with these. So I will drain all the bowls into this bottle.
That way I can dump all the gas in my lap at once. That's thinking ahead.
Gixxer.com and GSXR.com have a lot of knowledgeable people.
From those forums I learned what size carbs should be on my bike, the BST31SS,
and how to check if that is the carb I have. The 31 stands for 31mm.
The inner diameter of the front of the carb is 31mm on the BST31SS.
There we are. These are thirty one mm exactly.
The BST34SS - 34 mm. The BST36SS - 36 mm. The BST38SS - 38 mm.
I am beginning to see a pattern.
Here is a look at the front of the carburetors.
Front meaning toward the front of the bike. Butterfly valves in each circle.
Fuel hose wrapped in wire middle top. Idle set screw middle bottom.
The two sets of two black hoses descending from between the carbs are connected to vacuum, and are used to balance the carbs.
Joined together like this they are a Gang of carburetors.
Like a murder of crows. Flock of camels. Mess of iguanas. Crash of rhinocerouses.
This is the mystery nipple, also hooked to vacuum. I do not know what it is for.
So I capped it. I can not tell any difference in how it runs.
Here is a look at the back of the carburetors. Slides in each circle.
Venturi at the bottom of each slide. Jet needle in the middle of each venturi.
Little brass colored circle below the jet needle is the main air jet.
The carbs are numbered 1-2-3-4, left to right, in this picture.
Black hose from carb 2 to 3 is just a breather, and does not need to be hooked up to anything.
Bottom of the carbs. Float bowls with a float bowl drain in the middle of each one.
The circle just above each float bowl is the pilot screw.
Here are the K&N air filters, cleaned, oiled, and installed.
- Next I sold out to make 02¢
so I can fulfill my lifelong dream of owning a 1986 944 with blown head gaskets.
But no minivans!
- Then I finished my beer.
