Is this becoming a lost art? I am of the FI generation, but became really good at rebuilding and tuning carbs with the ol' 750. There really isnt much to them.

I will be rebuilding the carbs on my xs750 in the coming months. I've rebuilt carbs before and found the only really hard part was removing them from the bike. My 1100 saber you had to remove everything from them and then do this twisting spin to get them out of the top of the frame. The xs750 is going to be much easier!

Man, Ive got scars from those V4 motors - all of them from the 500 to the 1100 were a total pain ! The old Honda shop where I used to work did a lot of total frame up restoration o nthem, so, I got to mess with them alot -- More than I care to rember actually

Good thing I didnt hear form that guy, gots no money to mess with the old Re right now - The RE used more of a car type carb, something ive never made myself familar with and dont care to learn about --

What's the story with the RE5 carb? Why do you feel the need to farm it out?

Inquiring minds want to know.

1 - Ive got no skills yo !

2 - Seeing as how parts arent readly avaible for these carbs or the whole bike anymore . I fell that its going to take someone with a broad range of skills and knowledge to get it running correctly. Im sure , given enough time and parts, I could get it going , but, with the super condition of this bike ,Im not willing to risk breaking something in order to learn how to make it work .


3 - Im super lazy rignt now !
