Sprayed some carb cleaner in the carbs this weekend

I went to Autozone and bought some spray in carb cleaner for the SV. I removed the airbox and sprayed it in there. I noticed a difference almost immediately. Then, this morning, I noticed it again.

It was so difficult to start before and now it's much easier. I still need to choke it, but not nearly as long to keep it running.

Quicker and cheaper than an all-out carb clean.

I wish I'd tried that first. I screwed my carbs up by disassembling them... :(
They can be tricky. Damn, I love my FI!

I agree NW... carbs are tried and true... and yeah they have their quirks...but that FI that everybody loves is great till it starts going wrong and throwing codes!!
At least you get a code with FI. That almost always tells you what the problem is instead of tinkering for days on end to figure it out.
Not really. You can get codes from the internet and manuals for most bikes. Tripping them isn't that hard either.

Don't get me wrong... FI is great..but its just a different evil not the answer to heavin on earth!
The kids can help! That's how I learned. :dthumb:

just take the carbs off the bike and send them to me, ill clean them and put the floats up to spec etc....ive done it for several people through the mail....just a thought :cheers:
There you go Shan. Shouldn't cost more than $30 or $40 to ship round trip insured.
