SV650 Suzuki/Mikuni carbs on bench for refresh today. Weird linkages. Couple of minor issues (dead floats, worn float valve tips) but will work out ok.
Contrary to EX500...these DO have removable/replaceable seats.

Suzuki SV650 otherwise done, sent wrong bowl gaskets, I await correct and these babies go back home. This discolored, varnished float valve stuck, causing fuel into crankcase scenario.

Yet another 250 Ninja emulsion tube had more curves than Sophia Loren as result of gross overtightening. Thank you You Tube videos for emboldening those (who shouldn't) to go places that no man has gone before. The associated needle jet was gone missing, likely distorted, unable to properly fit into position in the body. Coincidence? i don't think so. I'm encountering these with frequency these days. Missing certain critical orings, those that were present were hardened, flattened, crystallized....the usual. Compensating for flattened oring/gaskets to prevent leaking, the float bowl screws were seemingly torqued to 96 lb/ft each, TY again YouTube.
Using salvage spares, replaced bent/missing parts, all consumables with new, split & full service, wet testing and adjusting...these came out presentable and will be 100% functional. A major improvement from what was given me...the owner will actually get to ride it again!
