Cleaning carbs
    Bought the Randakk's to do my carbs with. Had time to take them apart and was surprised. Didn't think they were that bad. The bike ran nice. Don't know when they were done last. I've only owned it for few years. Right now there is 110,000 miles on it. Getting it ready for next year. The kits are well worth the money. Everything you need. Thanks

I don't know if you have an update yet, or if you kept track of mpg before the carburetor kits.
You may feel a difference in performance and you may see an increase of mpg (or at least, more miles between fill-ups).
He is a good guy with a passion for Honda's pancake, H2O cooled opposed 4-cylinder.

Come back and let the members know of your experience with the rebuild.
I am sure there are some on the fence as to what direction they should head.......

I have 149,998 miles on my '84I.
I don't know if this is a 'resting your foot on the shift pedal' while riding or the 149,998 miles I have on my bike, but the 2nd/3rd gear shift fork on the main shaft of my bike decided to lose its hardened face and got chewed up as additional miles were logged.
With the bike in neutral and on the center stand, rocking the bike forward until the front wheel touched, caused a 'clicking' sound. Rocking the bike to touch the rear wheel, and the sound went away.
The sound is caused by the gap left when the shift fork got eaten away.
The engine performance is still very good and yielding 44 mpg.
The motor is not tired, just the transmission.

I am in the process of replacing parts (on another thread).

I just wanted to give you a heads up, given the miles you have.

Again, come back to give the forum an update.

Well I do agree the kits are nice. I got all four carbs rebuild and back on the intake. ready to put new fuel line on and see if they leak an if the floats work. But because of unseen problems. The bike has to be put away for a little bit. I believe I was getting like 37 - 39 mpg. Ill let every one know when I get her back toghter ..

When I serviced my carburetors I needed to replace all of the vacuum hoses. In doing so, I removed all those dried up hoses and the little hose clamps. I opted not to reuse or buy replacement clamps. I used the safety wire I had in my supplies. It took longer and while I was at it, I took the time to make it look awesome. I received many compliments.
Of course, if the stars are not in alignment and you do end up having to remove the carburetors again, it just gets easier and faster with each time they get removed........

There is nothing better than getting to know your bike intimately.

Enjoy your time together.
