Cool Carburetors disassembly process

Howdy all,

Pulled the carburetors off my friend's 2006 for a first-time scrubbing since they've never been off and decided to document the disassembly process to the best of my ability. Since a common question is "how do I take the carbs apart?" comes across, I thought I'd contribute to the cause.

The process can be found here Keihin Carburetors - Album on Imgur

If anything is wrong, needs a revision, have a suggestion etc., kindly message me the information so I can correct it.

Nice! That's pretty dang complete.

I vote sticky post! Definitely a keeper.

Just in time to do mine, it's on one cyl at low speed. Errr, I may chicken out and try seafoam again first. It's too hot for this.

One thing I can think of .... Didn't see the emulsion tubes.

Is that synonymous with the needle jet holder (part # 13091-1384) or something else? It appears to be the large flute-looking part that threads into the carburetor body and holds the main jet on top.

If that's the case, I did mention this part in my documentation. If I'm wrong, I'll hush up and let someone else take lead.

No, actually you're right and the tube is in the pics. These weird carbs... The emulsion tube is the jet holder. Was it covered with tiny holes up and down the sides? And did you clean those holes?

Emulsion tubes help atomize the gas just before it goes into the carb throat.

edit: Yep, that jet holder in your pics has the holes for emulsion. I can zoom the pic and count the holes that are showing.

Sure did clean the holes...tossed it in my ultra sonic parts cleaner.

Glad I didn't miss that major part, whew!

It's never too hot to do carburetor work - in 100 (plus) vile Arizona heat. I think I lost a few pounds from sweating alone.

super fantastic job! be sure to do 1 carb at a time as you don't want to mix up the parts especially the needles and jets.
