  1. Yes I can imagine it will be a different size. I might be a little ignorant but they just look like a rolled sheet with bent edges so hopefully not to complicated
  2. I've passed to a panel beater for a look to see if he can sort it
  3. Hi Does anyone have a bonnet for an exmo? Mines had a fight with a ridge tile

    Bike Carb trouble

    Thank you for you thoughts and suggestions. Had a good run this morning and much smoother. Exhaust backfiring occassionly but I think thats just cos I need a regulator in. Got some different hoses to try so hopefully be getting some trouble free runs soon.

    Ok had a quick look tonight, astonished that the hoses from carbs to manifold were looser than the proverbial at the back of the tavern. Tightened them up car fired first pull and balanced the carbs with a vaccum guage. Getting late so turned off for neighbours but to my annoyance hose clips slipping away again. Prehaps the slippery fancy silicone hoses are useless for this job?

    Thanks folks. I really should have started by stripping them down and giving them a good clean!

    Bike Carb trouble

    Ordered a regulator Yes I have distributer vaccum and brake vaccum T'd into inlet manifold. Borrowed a vaccum guage so I can balance properly I've read that the mixture on these carbs are factory set and the screws are covered with welch plugs. Does this mean I should just leave them be after balancing carbs properly? I havent done anything with the timing as far as I'm aware. How would I check this? I'll report back when I've fitted regulator and balanced carbs

    Thanks folks can you advise of supplier for regulator? Got fired up again and my father in law a good mechanic advised two were running lean and two rich so imbalanced. I think I know how to balance properly with a vaccum guage but how do you adjust mixture?
  9. Hi Help needed I bought a set of CBR600 bike carbs with manifold off ebay off a running pinto Fitted them to mine with electric fuel pump and fired up idleing smooth. Runs around town ok but putting foot down spluttery accelleration. Assumed fuel pump no good refitted mechanical pump in line. Fired engine up still spluterring on accelleration. Twisted middle screw clockwise which inctrased revs and got rid of splutter. Reduced idle with idle adjustment screw. Left running a little engine stopped and now wont restart. Q1. Have I unbalanc
  10. Thanks Blue I can't run flat out with steady throttle or quick stamp.
  11. I seem to be having fuel starvation issues with the electric pump I fitted. Idles lovely but sputtery pickup when you floor it road running. Am gonna refit the mechanical pump in series and see if this cures it.
  12. Thank you, checked out my fogs and they stay on regardless of main beam activation. I think I renewed the whole loom for the rear lights as most of the lights weren't connected and were hanging loose in the rear arches Not sure why I have wiper issues but am interested to know if you sort. There were some good diagrams on the forums hear which got me started
  13. Hi there Thanks for your interest I did wire the fogs into the dipped beams which formed the live connection for all my lights. My main beams are on a separate live and both dipped and main are oprated through a rotary switch on my dashboard. Good question about fogs not sure if mine go off with main beam will check although you would normally drive in fog with dipped beam anyway to prevent fog blinding? I had problem with the horn too which is because my new horn had its own relay built in. In the end I just wired up the horn through one of the ancilliary spares to avoid the fu
  14. Hi I am adding bike carbs and am too upgrading my pump to electric. Do you need to do any thing to the existing mechanical pump to decomission it or just disconnect pipes?
  15. Thanks Alan yes I looked at those too
