07 Apr 2016 - Fuel hose routing ??

 Working on a 1992 GSF 400(the fast Red one). Prior to me arriving on the scene , there was a real knucklehead at work on this bike!

 I understand the Vacuum line from intake to pump side of petcock.

So I've been working on a GSX600F katana which has the same carbs as the GSF400 (BST33SS).
Like my bandit, it has the 4 rubber plugs on the idle jet, and it will draw fuel via the passage from the main jet.
The plugs on this set have shrunken and don't fit properly anymor...

Will it fit a 1991-1993 400?

22 Mar 2016 - B4 Search Results

I've spent the last month working on my B4 just to get it to start without killing the battery every time. I figured it was something to do with the carbs because it would want to tick over but just take ages to actually fire, which is one of the reasons I ended up on this forum.

07 Mar 2016 - Carburetor Installation

I'll be reinstalling the carbs on my 2001 1200 today after cleaning the jets.  I always have a terrible time reattaching the rear/open throttle cable end to the "throttle wheel"--you can't really see it or feel it with the carbs loosely in place.  The last time I did this, it involved ...

Hi Guys

Are there any upgrade parts on a RF400 for a GSF400? I was offered a rf400 rolling chassis this morning for R800, must still get pictures. Looking at the pictures they look very similar, nothing looks better than on the GSF400 bits.

I'm so sorry I disappeared on you all after giving the forum over to Senan.  I didn't mean to.

2014 sort of turned into a shit show for us - http://www.archaicarcane.com/message-to-myself/.  The 919 was written off when a minivan hit Ryan from behind.  We're still cleaning that mess up. ...

21 Jan 2016 - Litetek choke rubbers

Hi Guys

One thing I noticed when initially installing the new lite-tek choke rubbers was that there were burs left during the molding process.

Once installed these burs caused the plungers to stick due to the rubbers not sitting 100% in the carb. I initially thought it would...
