I am rebuilding my carbs from an '82 Honda Nighthawk and I can't seem to figure out where to get a carb rebuild kit... From the image I think they are Keihin VB-22G carbs. Anyone got a idea of where to find the kit?
You didn't say you had a 450, so how was I to know. You can still get you kit there. I know a lot of people bitch about buying on Ebay. I have been dealing there for years and all the large companies products can be found there for good deals. The places you go to to buy parts are probably dealing them on Ebay also and for less money than if you walked in their store.
2. Rebuild kits (on ebay and elsewhere non honda) are often questionable. many have wrong jets or just otherwise only half the parts fit. Good news is most things inside carbs don't really wear. So teh typical things you want to change are the o-rings that seal float bowl (so they don't leak) , needle / needle valve depending. Potentially other seals or o-rings. Most other things you can just clean.
-others can and maybe will add to my list of recommended replaceables. But often you can clean a carb without replacing anything.
I have recently built a cafe brat scrambler type bike using a Yamaha 125 YBR as the donor.
Because i have changed the tank i lost the original fuel pump that lives in the tank and had to opt for an external one from ebay.
now the bike will start but cut out as soon as ANY demand is wanted.
Bought this lovely hitter, 1000s ie. The picture shows the damaged side, a tank dent is the worst of of the cosmetics. The Ohlins and exhaust are upgrades. The po has fucked up the signals/taillight with cheap led's. Overall it is a cheap fix cosmetically.
Put a battery in it, the dash cycles...
New to the forum. About a year ago I picked up a 2000 Triumph Adventurer with 3,000 miles. I'm trying to "level/flatten" the bikes lines but there's not a ton of builds or aftermarket parts for an Adventurer. I do not think there's much I can do as I'm not a welder or bike builder so...
First let me preface my question with a little background. I have been working on and riding the Honda 350 twins since they first came out new (with a lot of other bikes thrown ). I have always had trouble with the stock carbs on these bikes as most people seem to have. I have a 1973 Honda CL350...
Is anyone running an older DR650 as a stripped down trail bike or desert sled?
I am currently working on one, and trying to find a good exhaust, tire and seat setup. Open to input and suggestions.
