Here's how I did a pair o carbs off a mk2.
Obviously the bowls are different for the mk1 and the fuel level should be 7.4mm to 8.4mm above the float chamber line.
The float chamber line is the lowest line on the bowls shown in the piccy below.
When you connect the tube, make sure the float bowl drain off screw is unscrewed a good few turns and also make sure the fuel pump is connected and the ignition switched on.
The bike also needs to be upright and on level ground.
Regarding the high revs, it might be worth disconnecting the idle speed adjuster from the frame and seeing if it'll turn, they sometimes get twisted up and won't turn freely.
Why have you fitted the leccy pump when the vac pump was fixed and working ?
Hi Studley Ramrod!
Once again I am counting on your help
The photo below shows the first level settings float (7.4 to 8.4 mm) for a MK2 carburetors
(You and I have a 2000 a 2001 - are identical?)
Below is a post # 17 "Hammerman" that are orientaš§s for a MK1, where he wrote: Turn the screws fully clockwise Until lightly seated, then back Them Out two and a half turns (three is the standard setting for the Mk1). Start from there, the more turns in October Richens mixture.
I understand that with the guidance of the "Hammerman" we have:
For MK1 - mixture screw by turning counter clockwise = more air and less gasoline = Richens
mixture screw by turning clockwise = - less fuel and more air = poor
This information is the opposite of what I ever did in all other motorcycles I had (other models). For the screw thus controls the passage of gas and would control the normal air inlet. That's right, for the MK1?
For MK2 (2.5 turns standard?) Controls the gas or air screw?
rotating counterclockwise =? ................
Turning clockwise =? ................
I am very grateful if you can satisfy my doubts
Thank you vey mutch!
