Hey guys. So this afternoon a friend and I are gonna work on cleaning out the carbs on my 500. Iíve never worked on a carburetor before, so I donít really know what to expect. My friend says he has cleaned the ones on his bike (CBR F4) but I think he just pulled the tank, drained the carbs, filled them with a carb cleaner, let it sit for a few minutes, drained the cleaner, then ran the engine while spraying in carb cleaner.
I have read the ninja250 site about working on the carbs ( http://faq.ninja250.org/wiki/How_do_I_work_on_the_carbs%3F
) is this pretty accurate? Also, what is your preferred carb cleaner? I have some Gumout carb+choke cleaner in an aerosol can.
Iím sure itís probably pretty easy to figure out, but Iíve never removed the gas tank on the bike, does anyone have instructions how to do this? Is there anything else I should check while Iím working on it, idle screws, air filter? I'm kinda embarrassed about being an engineer and needing to ask these questions, but i want to make sure I do it right, measure twice cut once kinda thing, and not lose anymore fingers. Thanks for all the help guys.
