Default Rebuilding it.

8 spark plugs, twin cradle overhead frame, masses of vacuum lines, fuel lines, lectrics, throttle abd choke cables, Ahh the joy of a Kawasaki top end.

I will be sat on the bike with a large piece of wood cable tied to the back of
the carbs to get some leverage. I may even apply some heat with a heat gun to the rubbers just to get a little bit of pliability into them before I start pushing.
Carbs are fully sorted and with a hybrid stage-1 Dynojet kit fitted.
Then I've got some custom made to my spec PiperX individual air filters.
Taking my time, no point in rushing.

Here they are all shiney shiney and rebuilt.
I bought a set of bike specific stainless allen bolts for the carbs.
8 off an eBay seller in France.
Seeing as the carb screws are made of chocolate



I will use the standard setting for the mixture screws but I may buy a Colortune to get it spot on. Failing that there's dyno unit about 15 miles away.
