Lec­tron carbs

Classic Motorcycle Mechanics - - RETRO REBOOT -

The place where dreams are built, tools are kept and where there’s a strange smell from the cor­ner where the cats used to be.

It’s fit­ting that in an is­sue which cel­e­brates the glory of the Kawasaki triple H1 that we should fea­ture th­ese Lec­tron carbs in work­shop news. Ru­mour is that th­ese are THE pup­pies when it comes to power and ef­fi­ciency on Kawasaki triples – and a wider-range of clas­sics. Nick Pep­per and the boys at Suzuki Per­for­mance Spares swear by ’em. Nick says: “The Lec­tron is a jet­less carb, all the fu­elling is con­trolled by the ta­pered me­ter­ing rod sys­tem and the per­for­mance is amaz­ing. They have a long his­tory of be­ing the carb of choice on Kawasaki triples and in car­bu­rated drag rac­ing, also for Kawasaki and Suzuki fours. They are in­creas­ingly be­ing used on Yamaha two-stroke twins such as RD-LCS and also clas­sic mo­tocross and en­duro bikes. Prices start from £285 in­clud­ing VAT per carb de­pen­dant on spec.” For more go to: www.suzukiper­for­mances­pares.co.uk or call 07900 362809.
