800Kms on the clock ( It still has the original tyres ). It has never been registered and the Kms were largely done with trade plates from a South Australian bike shop in the 70's before being relegated to the back of the store. The person I bought it from had it 9 years and did little with it.
I am not restoring but trying to fix the things needed to get it right and as close to original as possible.I need to remove the carbs to clean them properly. I am not sure which way the come out. It seems like I will ruin the old connection rubbers if I keep going the way that I am. What is the go?
Also did this model have metal spark plug caps and is there anyone out there with the original fuel hose set up for sale? RegardsI have to say getting the carbs out on the 900 is a bit of a pig. The rubbers tend to go hard too.
Not sure if this is exactly the same as on the 750 but what you can do is take out the battery disconnect the bits from the battery try and remove that, take out the air filter and its rubbers and then you have room to get the carbs back.
Alternatively, if you want to get them off without taking the air box out, remove the rubbers between the air box and carbs first - try and wriggle them back into the air box - you can rescue them later from the other side (take the air filter out). This should give you enough room too.
Hope that helps!,,,
