Lightning carbs.
« on: 08 July, 2021, 21:08:10 »
After many issues, I now have a bike which seems to have given up its desire to self combust after spitting back and igniting "tickled" fuel and has been a reliable starter and transport for a few weeks now BUT this is only with the air valve a quarter closed. The fuel supply to the carbs is good so I reckon I need to lift the needles a notch or two, would that be right and any tips for getting those fine threaded caps back on with no drama as I am always shitting myself about cross threading them onto the carbs. Cheers

Hi,
     This might help:

The fine threaded caps can be tricky, I turn anticlockwise until I feel the start of the thread (little click) then turn clockwise to secure.


Best wishes...
