Thanks Recliner, I'll get on that this afternoon. I appreciate the help guys. My daily rider is a fuel injected inline 4 that I only do basic stuff, oil changes, air filter, wheel removal, etc. I haven't had carbs on a bike to play with in 9 years. I didn't need to play with the ones on my last bike except cleaning once in a while.

HA LOL...he called you "RECLINER" !  LOL

Shut this thread down.
I'm pretty sure I'd know if I were being manipulated by some overwhelming, mesmerizing, quasi-divine entity anointed by its own cult of personality. Nobody could be that stupid. So who's ready for the Super Bowl?

I bolted mine on yesterday.  5 minutes to tweak and rode several miles around town.  thats all I got to say about that.

For $52 bucks and free shipping...you really cant beat that.

AND it came out of the box w float preset to perfect 24mm  ;D

Giving up on starting her today. Had it run for about 15 seconds, but it wouldn't hold. I'll try again tomorrow.

Not pretty, but this will get the job done until I find a tail light/plate holder that I like and will work with the 6volt system.

Been thinking about that eBay carb trek bought. My only concern is this bike came with a pod filter, no stock airbox. So if I bought the replacement carb, I would probably still need to get the next size up main jet from what I have read. And probably still have a bit of trouble to tune it just right.

These two bikes were on a job I worked today. 1975 cb200, and a 1966 160. Cool dudes. I told them to check out the forum.

I will try to take a minute and measure the main jet (unmarked) in the new carb and compare it to the old stock carb.  The jet looks like the same from the 360 carbs.  Ill check that also.
