Basic Bench carb setup
« on: March 24, 2020, 08:16:47 am »

There have been a lot of questions on basic carb slide setting in order to get the bike running. Attached is a word document I wrote some time ago for the UK site which quite a few members have told me helped so I have edited it slightly and attach it here.
Semi Geriatric ex-Honda mechanic and MOT tester (UK version of annual inspection). Garage full of "projects" mostly 500/4 from pre 73 (no road tax in UK).

Remember "Its always in the last place you look" COURSE IT IS YOU STOP LOOKIN THEN!

Yup, having done it incorrectly recently, that is a great description of how to get started.  Thanks.
