I would recommend tossing those wire hose clamps on the bike and getting some of the kind that are adjusted with a screw driver. I find that there are much easier to tighten/loosen and probably provide a bit more "clamp" (though newbies should make sure not to tighten them too much and brake the plastic filter). They are also more readily available.
After frustrating myself trying to put those wire clamps back on the carb hoses after a carb sync, I decided to put the screwdriver kind on the carbs as well.
Vacuum hoses don't even need clamps. I'm not sure why they're there...maybe a vibration issue or something.
But I only drink out of glass bottles, What should I do? — Sean, Wed Aug 08, 2007 9:29 pm
Gorgeous pictures, H. I'll add them to FAQ soon (n/t) — Bokonon, Wed Aug 08, 2007 1:53 am
Another option for side of the road repair — Payne, Wed Aug 08, 2007 1:16 am
Thanks, Payne. Brian's big on that, too, so it's already in FAQ. (n/t) — Bokonon, Wed Aug 08, 2007 1:52 am
About those filters...... — dizeldawg, Tue Aug 07, 2007 7:00 pm
I'll add a recommendation to change them once a year. Thanks (n/t) — Bokonon, Wed Aug 08, 2007 1:55 am
hopefully none of the plastic was dissolved and deposited in the carbs (n/t) — kiwi_outdoors, Tue Aug 07, 2007 10:21 pm
Didn't look like it disolved it, just got soft. (n/t) — dizeldawg, Wed Aug 08, 2007 7:15 pm
Nice pictures. Seems like a good idea for a weekend project. (n/t) — EricE, Tue Aug 07, 2007 6:43 pm
