Carb/throttle balancing

What you using?
Wished I hadn't broken my mercury sticks, my new fangled Morgan carb tune with stainless rods seems to be unreliable. There's intermittent stiction on number 3 which is causing ball archery as yer left chasing ghosts that's don't exist, breathe ahhhhhh.... Anyone using this new version??
Last time I used it was down with Jog and without saying much he disconnected it after trying to balance her and used his own, nuff said.
Sent an email to the lads in Belfast about it. Suppose I could balance in pairs but I'm a stubborn soab and tbh I've lost faith in it.
Gona get *some* miles in on the bb if possible this summer and want her creamy smooth.

Strip the carb-tune and give it a clean, give the rods a spray of PTFE.

Thanks lads for the suggestions, I'd assumed they were all calibrated individually and were not user serviceable
Actually they all must be individually calibrated if sprung individually, the loctite bolts on the threaded rods end will be that then. Will give the rods and tubes a clean and see how bouncy they are, no4 was pretty unresponsive. Before pulling the carbs again I was chasing my tail.


Hast moved in bloody ages, months of dust on her.


Bits


Culprit.


Cleaned em all and given a very light polish. Carbs are immaculate really, slight varnish in the bowls but clean as a whistle especially after a desk top cleaning and blow through. No float heights to set on these babies. If float height is wrong you replace valve and float! Gotta love Honda lol. Still and all it's a reassuring unmovable base line as standard, I've had to bend more float tangs on the mikunis than I care to remember.


23 years, 7k miles and carbs don't mix so all new Honda valves in, expensive bastards at 127 quid delivered for 4 of these (cmsnl dearer but quicker than megazip) but I ain't fookin about with spurious, lessons were learnt over the years on the Suzukis.


Ready to rock, will reinstall tomo with new irridiums, drain the tank and fit the new honda tap and diaphragm for further peace of mind.
Will pull the shyte old n hard Dunlops off her shortly, maybe fit some bt's, always like em on my old bb. Don't like the roadsmarts profile, too pointy and I've raised the rear already with the shock.
Can't wait for a sunny day to give the big ol pokey bitch the kickin she deserves.

Don't think you will get any closer than that :-)

Installed the new Petcock diaphragm kit, surprised it didn't come with the o ring for the Petcock until I realised there was no need to remove it. Either way I wanted to check the screen so she was coming off.


Faint wang of juice above and beyond what is normal so dusted the underside and sure enough that'll be the o ring I reused.


1.9 x 20.6mm is oem, which needless to say is oddball but abbeyseals had 21 x 2 nitrile which is doing the job fine.

Took her for a blast and by christ its going like a scalded cat. Fuelling is as it should be and the pull from it is deliciously excessive, well for me at least. New hoops next.
