Carbworx is AWESOME!!!!

Hey guys, I know there's been a couple of people posting about Carbworx in VA, but I wanted to reiterate Steve Reed's AWESOMENESS!!!!! I sent my carbs from my VN750 and carbs from my mother-in-law's 1988 Honda Shadow VT800 up to him a couple of weeks ago. He did an awesome job on both sets of carbs and really quick turn around time too (especially considering his area was getting pelted with blizzard like snow fall the whole time. Not only did he clean our carbs, but he also repaired a couple of issues (including the top of my rear carb where my father-in-law cracked it with a pair of needle nose pliers...) and didn't charge anything extra for the repairs. When I got the carbs back they both looked like new again and he synced the carbs (as best as possible without the bike in possession).

I received the carbs last Thursday and put them back in my VN750 this weekend... Bike seems to be running great again, and best of all, I am idling on both cylinders again!!!! Should I mention how great the bike feels when operating correctly...? Or is that one a no brainer... LOL

So, I repeat myself... Steve Reed at Carbworx is AMAZING http://www.carbworx.com/

Check him out, get in touch with him and ship your carbs out to him... $40 p/carb, you can't go wrong with that. Not to mention... who the heck really wants to go through the hassle of cleaning your own carbs... This guy is great, and he is a certified Kawi tech (which means he really knows our bikes)... So he can do all kinds of stuff for your VN, but his carb work is AMAZING!!!!!

Glad to see someone else using Steve's services, he really does a great job. One of these days I will get the carbs on my bike to see how good of a job he did. I am sure the outside of yours looks alot better from the ultrasonic cleaning, I know he did wonders on mine.

I have always cleaned my own carbs with no problems, but for someone who can't, that sounds like a great alternative. Problem is, it is actually more of a hassle for me to remove and reinstall the Vulcan carbs than it is to disassemble and clean them. Once I have them off the bike, it's a piece of cake. My guess is that there are probably a lot of Vulcan 750 owners who would have problems removing and reinstalling the carbs. That's why I soak mine in Seafoam about every 3 months. 44,000 miles and counting, and never had the carbs off my '02. Sometimes I wish the VN750 only had one carb, like the VN800, that is until I twist the throttle. Jerry.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.

What does he charge? Cleaning and rebuilding the carbs is cake... it's removal/installation that's the difficult part.

In fact, if there's any member on this board that needs their carbs cleaned (and doesn't mind paying for the gaskets/diaphragms/whatever else needs replacing) I'll do the job free, minus the cost of shipping. I owe the board that much. Send me a PM and we'll get to work.
