I have finally finished honing cylinders and lapping valves on my 75 cb500t, the bike looks great, but the carbs are junk. What I have done(to the engine).
-Honed Cylinders (compressions good)
-New seals on top end
-New cam chain
-Adjusted cam chain
-Adjusted tappets to .004
-Adjusted Timming (dead on currently)
-new seals and orings on carbs
-pod filters, I bought the wrong jets, so I will need to source the correct ones (and yes I am dead set on getting pod filters, I know, I know, haha)
Here are my current issues.
When I kick start it fires right up, well the left side cylinder starts and runs pretty well. no backfire runs smooth, right side wont fire, unless throttle is given then it will sometimes kick in and run. When I start turning the choke off the bike revs up really high. The mixture screw does nothing on either side. I tried to take the mixture screw out the left carb and the screw snapped, so I need to drill it out and find a replacement, will probably just do a full rebuild on both. Additional point, when I swapped the carbs, left carb on right cylinder, I experienced the same issue, right hand cylinder fired up and ran, left cylinder did nothing (other than rotate obviously).
I am thinking a full rebuild on the carbs is in order, looking for other things to look for while I wait for rebuild kit to arrive, hoping I can drill out the bad jet without doing damage. Any god sources for a decently priced set of 450 or 500t carbs? Thanks!
Pic for attention.
