Putting S carb back on...

Recommended Posts

OK...I've done it before when I did my re-jet....BUT...it damn near takes an act of God to put the carb back in after making changes. I know that there has to be a trick/tip from all of you who make re-jetting a habit. What's the trick??? :thumbsup:

Some suggest disconnecting the subframe - I have and wouldn't again.

If you use some careful brute force (yeah, probably an oxymoron) you can push the airbox boot back a fair way and hold it in place with a rod of some sort. It deforms, but goes back into shape.

Yeah it seems that brute force works but scratches the $hit out of my subframe with the intake side of the carb. Damn engineers!

Suzuki designed everything on the engine to NEVER be removed!!!

I remove the upper subframe bolts and rotate it out of the way, it wasn't that bad, and no bleeding digits!

My trick was to twist the carb on its side then insert into the front boot, then get the rear boot lined up and use a screwdriver as a shoe horn.

That worked for me. The subframe is easy to unbolt but a major beeotch to get bolted back up alone.

Why, lift with the right hand and insert the bolt with the left, while standing on the left side of bike.

I do it every time I have ever removed my carb, and I have had a lot of practise :applause::applause:

And tomorrow I shall do it just for fun, no not really, I need to fit my FCR.

On the other hand I may just say, sod it, and go fishing instead.

I think is the actual frame you are scratching, not the subframe - and I have done it too. Still, pushing the boot back gives you more room to twist and turn the carb around the other obstructions.

How's that old saying go !!!!!!!

A bad days fishing, is better than a good days working.

I shouldn't have said I was going fishing though, it's now pissing with rain and the wind (easterly) is getting up, so much for summer :ride:

Still as I have to work on the bike outside, I may as well get wet fishing.

I took mine out the first time and never again. I've rejetted 6-8 times w/o removing it from the bike. Works for me YMMV. :thumbsup:

leave the little rubber boot on the carb, align hole on cylinder head approximately, push...carb pops right into place and you dig the boot out with your finger. Am I missing something here?

Yep....That's what I meant. "Removing subframe" was still in my head from reading your post. :thumbsup:

Just know you're not alone! I slapped some duct tape on the frame, and used a box end wrench (round end so as not to tear the boot) to lever the rubber air box boot back. Thought about the sub-frame, but with my luck I would tear some wires or such...

It's not for food, it's for sport, and fun.

Is that a carp? Yeah, I can't blame you for not eating that if it is.
