no prob. He knows these carbs inside out.
I hope yours didn't get ruined after someone tried to soak it in the carb cleaner. If so, FCR is as good as a door stop now

Dammit zaq! Quit sayin that, they can always be fixed, $100 rebuild kit is nothing for an $800 carb, keep the faith brother :-)

no, there is no kit in existence out there, including from Keihin themselves which includes one important gasket. That gasket get destroyed two ways:
1.user taking security bolts out trying to over achieve in cleaning
2. When FCR is being soaked in carb cleaner
Once that gasket is done, FCR is done
