Here is a pic of my 2fiddy that I will be pulling the carbs out of for Mr. Gordon to work his magic!

You won't regret it, man the bike feels like they came out of the factory after the carb clean.

Hard to believe at one time that black stuff was fuel. The brass jets underneath, once revealed, will no doubt show some nasty damage. It'll be interesting to see, I'll leave them intact for a pic I'll eventually post. Thankfully, I've got spare jets involved.

Challenging, a lotta work ahead on these nasties, actually Mikuni BDST34 from a 750 Ducati Monster twin. Similar Mikunis were used on old 90's Yamaha FZ, some Suzuki fours too.

For informational purposes...I'll try and get history from owner to see how long they sat.

turns out was a "barn find", sat untouched by current owner for 2 years, unfortunately no previous owner timeline available.

As the pictured carb is far worse than the other, i'll venture to say it was left on its side stand many years filled with unstabilized fuel.

separate vacuum leak diagnosed/fixed, carbs' internal circuits cleared, float levels, mixture adjustments corrected, starts on the click of the button, stable idle, responding to throttle.
New battery, intake manifolds, oil & fuel filters, oil & coolant, final drive oil, spark plugs...(basically a full service minus valves)

This big-ass 650 pound touring ST1100 Honda (V4 carbed powerplant) is ready to rock after tire and valve replacement....next on the list. I await shipment.

My Saturday here....missing various parts, clogged in numerous areas, vent hose misrouted and kinked shut between the poorly setup carbs, bowl hardware obscenely tightened to compensate for crushed oring seals, pilot screws (missing washers) closed shut, every single oring crystallized solid, decel valve sticking, air correction jets clogged........on and on.

I'll submit the owner will not recognize them as his own AND the 250 involved will now run like a champ (provided no other issues on bike).

Not quite done yet....these required some chutzpah, determination, and experience in knowing where to seek and how to eliminate problem areas. Splitting mandatory in this repair.

Yeah, "carbs are easy"....right.

This 650 lb Honda behemoth is certainly the opposite side of motorcycling from the perspective of ninjette and such lightweight sporties. Their (mature) owners rave on its comfort, reliability and pile many miles on....200K+ not unusual at all.

Gulp...I will test ride after new tire install before handing it back to the 70 year old local owner (friend of a friend). Want to assure no running issues whatsoever. I gotta admit, its size and weight are rather intimidating. Being a lightweight I had to employ additional help to get it up on the centerstand!

Current "corona" project...in process of restoring an original Holley 1 barrel carb off a 1958 Ford F100 pickup. Goal to make both functional and return it to its former glory by owner request. I'll post before/after when done.

Interesting old brass float setup and ball bearing type check valves and drillings (rather than jets) controlling flow and spray...this one an oldie alright.

Honda Shadow carbs essentially done, I await new float bowl gaskets. In the meantime, doing valve clearances.

Interesting older Honda/Keihin carbs...some parts/orings common to 250!

The formerly spitting, sputtering, loudly popping Honda 750 Shadow is now done and complete, a successful victim of carb voodoo. Fully serviced and fully rideable, though the open, loud fishtail exhaust is utterly obnoxious, IMHO.....back to owner it goes. And today has officially left the building. Direct quote via text from owner "unbelievable, great throttle response, no hesitations, just perfect".
