If I may quote myself. I did this epoxy job between the brass swivel piece and the slide cap (cleaned with soap and steel wool first), and it worked a treat. I also silconed the rubber cable boot to the brass piece. I recommend it to anyone with an OKO flat slide carb. I specifically pressure washed the top of the carb, and then drained the carb bowl and zero water in there.Yeah good idea. I don't need the swivel action, and the cable sits happy if the thing is aimed forward toward the headstem. I'll remove the slide cap and throttle cable, clean it then epoxy the swivel piece in position.
you are too lean.Hey guys ,
I started my bike his morning for the first time since the new carby was put on and the motor seems to run real hot !! I only had it on for a few minutes and the exhaust changed Colour and the motor and whole exhaust got real hot very quick.. even the the muffler got hotter then normal ..
I've only ever started it twice and both times (first time was with 25mm mikuni) it seemed to get much hotter then I would expect especially with in the sort amount of running time...
It also seem to sortta koff or backfire through the carby sometimes when trying to start it..
Anyone got any ideas ???
