Getting at the screw is the problem really. I'll have to see what long drill bits I have. I'll try my dremel(copy) - I may be able to grind off the head if I can get at it. Hell of a design

for working on Jap bikes you need a JIS screwdriver as a normal philips will just cam out and chew the head. i got this https://www.onlyqualitytools.com/cat...ewdrivers.html and it has been a life saver especially the impact when loosening (it only loosens on impact) the top carb screws. its not a full JIS screwdriver but its damned close. for most screws you only need the PH2.

Thanks Bibio, just ordered the impact driver.

I got the front carb free by levering the whole assembly up with a length of wood. The screw for the front choke cable entry is wasted. I'll try a small mole wrench on it later. I can see my having to cut the choke cable in order to get the b*gg*r off. .

wait till the screwdriver arrives before taking a pair of molies to the screw. i have been amazed at what that screwdriver will take out, screws that look totally fubar have come out.

As someone mentioned in another thread here, there is a JIS screwdriver in the toolkit under the seat (if you still have one)

Might speed things up for you!

I dug out an old impact driver I obtained years ago. It's got assorted bits. I propped a piece of thick softwood between the Carbs and the frame and used the impact driver. screw released quite quickly! It surprised me because the head was really mashed up.

The No2 impact driver I bought yesterday has been already dispatched so that's another tool I probably won't ever use I'll have a garage sale before I move to a smaller place

Going to London for a long weekend so I'll continue the carbs saga next week

HI, Question:
Is the carb heater strictly necessary, because one of the cables to the front carb heater has come adrift(the one with the small spring)?

The piston needles were a bit gummy. They cleaned up okay.

Just spotted a comment from Sid Squid to the effect that the carb heaters are pointless in summer. Saved me forking out 30+ for a new one.

Where's the best place to get screws?

Quite right. I used to have a EU import SV with none fitted. I never noticed.
