    If I could just swap in the FI stuff I would, but FI models have an extra sensor in the head, which seems like a large pain in the ass to swap.

    Yeah I've got a 96 and the pump fuel was GUMMING the carbs and thus rough running.... so in my infinite wisdom I took the carbs apart to clean them and there they sit on my work bench14 months later all Fucking 170 indavidual pieces!:timeforabeer:
    Friggin 170 PC's on four carbs, go figure! and no shop will do carburetors anymore.
    I could try it but I know I'll just frustrate myself I've never taken apart a set of those carbs before I've only worked on simple 2-stroke carbs.
    It's my fault I should have put them back together right away but I was waiting for different parts and the diaphragms and all the other shit I ordered online.

    Does anybody know of a top-notch carburetor guy anywhere near southern California to can work on SRAD carbs...
    This bike was just sublime it's a shame for it to be sitting throttle response was so crisp just twisting my wrist and 1st or 2nd lifted the front wheel... It was jetted almost flawlessly.


    I guess I'm getting old because the thought of spending $500 to have for carburetors cleaned and partially rebuilt to me is absurd I remember buying my rz350 brand new for $2,300...lol

    So, you need a head gasket and a new head.

    And a new cam, and the FI parts, and the wire harness, and the ECU.

    This is why I take dozens of pics when I tear my carbs apart to rebuild them... I can always refer back to my photos!
