BUYING BIKE CARBS
A set of motorbike carbs should cost between £100 and £150 from motorbike breakers.Try to buy the backing plate for the air filter box, because it can be used as a template to make your own air filter. When buying second-hand, look for accident damage. Check the throttle and choke linkage operates freely and the butterflies close together (the spindle may be bent if they don’t close together). Ensure the plastic diaphragm covers are not cracked because a cracked cover will affect the operation of the diaphragm and needle inside, causing uneven fuelling.
