Re: Carbs for sale

Re: fuel tank

You have the wrong yokes on, chances are they are 650, one of my earlier thous had the same thing, took a while to work out, changed them for the right ones and no more touching the tank.

Re: z1000 a1 mikuni carb adjuster

This has happened quite a bit, on one set i had i cut the slot deeper and made the screwdriver narrower to enable me to do the job, worked fine not perfect, but you never see them unless making adjustments.
