    Finally got some time to mess with the carbs.
    Gaskets were perfect. Nice price and killer quality. Super happy.

    Saw a deal on some JIS screw drivers a while ago, and this is the first time I get to use them!
    Funny that it was on a Bimota, and not my normal garage of Hondas

    Pro tip while rebuilding carbs.
    Always use a spill proof glass for your drink....

    Ran into one small issue.
    When putting the float bowls on, I assumed that I had mixed up the order, as the drain was not pointing in the correct direction.
    I "corrected" this, but found out I was wrong when I went to install the carbs.....
    The drain hits the shock mount.
    Gotalove this stuff.

    Yup.
    but the simple swapping of bowls around gets everything tightly packed in here.
    better then having some one off carb that you can't service

    You'd have lots of clearance if those were fuel injection throttle bodies instead of CV carbs

    Bike moved under its own power yesterday!

    Got everything buttoned up and it fired right up.
    Took it to get fuel and was great.

    Tried to take it on a quicker blast to open her up a bit and failed.
    Seems to be starving for fuel.

    Suspect the silly vacuum fuel pump thing, and a bad filter.
    Changed those last night, but was too late to take a road test.
    Put a couple of miles on it hoping in vain that it was just a slug of bad fuel or something.
