What Carb Kits did you order? I have Carb #2 Leaking.  I was able to find a good deal on the Dynojet kit.

I see there are a number of Dynojet kits on ebay for under $100, not including shipping.  For the record, the kit number should be: #4107 for the Mikuni BS32 carbs.
As for the rebuild kit, K&L "economy" kit number 18-5105 is what their site says to use.  I'm a bit leary about anyone who mates up my FJ with a kit that does not disclose the kit number, or the designated carbs that the kit is designed for.  K&L does NOT have a kit in their 2011 catalog that also has any jets, so by default, the Dynojet kit will be ordered as well, even though, back in the day, I know for certain that a Dynojet kit is/was installed in my carbs from day 1, but it'd probably be in my best interest to replace them by this point, since I bought the bike in 1992.

Did you end up getting the brake lever/assembly issue figured out?

Luvin' this thread. The rust in the tank and cruddy carbs are very familiar. This FJ seems somewhat similar to my '93 XJ600 Seca II cafe project. Got it from my son-in-law. Sat for six or seven years - allegedly, the engine had seized. Not so. I got it to spin over when I try to start it, but so far no spark. It's been sitting again while I've been playing with my V-Star.


Keep up the good work. This may be the motivation I need to get back to it.

Project not dead, far from it.  Bit the bullet on listing the "Scrapple" project on CL, and it may go this weekend. If so, well, any and all procees will go into finishing The Mighty Jig.  I bought a used Flasher relay on ebay recently, and that seems to have cured the intermittent electrical issues.  Still I have a ways to go, including, yes, the carbs, stiffening up the replacement fairing I bought, sorting out brakes, replacing all of the bushings in the rear swingarm, a new shock, fork seals (have), new tires (stalking on ebay and Amazon, of all places), and getting a new seat cover.  The stripped bar-end weights are still firmly in place and will need to be gone if i'm ever going to be able to put new grips on it.   

In other news, I had finally gotten its long lost Pennsyltuckey title in a the mail and on 12/28/22, lest I have to pay any 2011 Virginia Property taxes, it now has a clear, clean and legal Virginia title.

Have a little faith, my brothers and sisters.

The '01 Guzzi V11 Sport, but it's gone.
