Cleaning and adjusting a carberaters best videos for dummies: This ought to be pinned at the top

Ghost-Flame
I am one who likes to look at videos when I,m learning something. Then look at the manual then go back to the video. Then take it to my local shop.... Just kidding. Time I have money, not so much. I thought these were pretty good for us guys and girls that may not have done this before. If you want to rebuild the carb, Get your re-build kits then, look at the carb cleaning video. Th carb cleaning video should be all you need for re-jetting the carb as well.

Moving this one to the Repairs and Write-Ups section, and pinning it for a couple of weeks.  Hope that's OK.

Since this is pinned, should we link all of the carb cleaning resources here?

Edit: here is the link that applies to cleaning the DOHC carbs: http://honda-cb750-s.456789.n3.nabble.com/DOHC-carb-cleaning-procedure-td867809.html

The new plastic floats are so light they will NOT depress
the float spring even with the float resting on it.
You would have to push the float down with your finger.

With the older brass floats that was an issue but not anymore.

BTW on that first video the guy measures 13.393 that is not 14.5mm
But with a digital caliper you saw it jumping all around. Aggrevating!

Just get a good dial 6 inch caliper that reads in thousandths.
Get the one that is 0-.100 thousandths in one revolution.
It is the most common.

I wanted to correct this after almost 3 years. How timely I am!
The plastic floats WILL compress the float spring. About the only time that might not happens is with crappy float needs.
The original honda needles compressed and the aftermarket ones did to. So, turn the rack at an 45 degree angle and then measure.

And the measurement, is 14.5mm +-.5, so, in effect, 14-15mm. A mm is not that small, just use an accurate ruler.
The ride IS the adventure. The destination is just to get gas!
