Re: Hi all newby from tamworth england


hi there and welcome. let me know if you have any problems with the carb stripping as i ve become an expert owning the same gk73 1988 for the past 5 years emoticon
as a matter of fact i did mine today emoticon

p.s: worst part is trying to find needles! watch out for them cause they are priceless. then take care of the "o-rings" at the top of the carbs which connect the lid with the body and seal the small hole in front of the carbs as you look at them on the bike. those are the major probs. from what i remember factory settings are clips at 3rd from top and air screw 1.5 turn open. let me know if u need any help emoticon

Hi thankyou, for replies. emoticon
I am just trying to get hold of a set of o rings for my carbs, in touch with someone on grey bike forum who is trying to help me out.
My bike has been stood for a couple of years, it turns over and i have good spark but until i sort carbs out i dont think she will jump to life without the strip down and carb clean. Do i need to have the airbox attached to carbs to help with it running right once i get it to start as i am missing an air box so just want to know if i should get one before i try to get it going? any more help wolud be welcome emoticon

Re: Hi all newby from tamworth england


yup u are gonna need an airbox as those carbs are a pain to work without the standard airbox. we had a member that made custom ones and you can find his guide on the workshop section. any further queries please post on the workshop section so others can see the posts etc. cheers emoticon
