Carb clean

Does anyone know of a step by step tutorial on how to clean out the carbs on an '00 SV650? I've looked around and found one, but all the photos where gone so it was pretty useless. A video would work as well...I've never done it before and would love to get it done quickly with minimal hassle. Thanks!

Re: Carb clean

Do you have a service manual? The manual shows you how to remove and disassemble the carbs. Go to YouTube, doesn't matter if the carbs are not from a SV. Just look for CV carb cleaning.

Here's one link. Go from there, many to view.
You do not need to separate the carbs to clean. Same procedure, just leave the carbs attached, otherwise you will have to synch the carbs once installed, which actually is not a bad idea anyway, but leave the carbs as a pair.

Re: Carb clean

Just a tip as it was easier for me. Disconnect the choke cable from the handle and just leave it connected to the carb. It was much easier for me to feed that cable through the frame then to try and remove and reconnect on the carb. I would also replace the bolts on the boot clamps under the carbs to something like a hex cap or allen bolt. Actually while you are at it, you should also replace the screws on the carbs as well. I dont remember the size but replacing them with allen screws makes future work much easier.

Re: Carb clean

Disassemble and take photos. That way, you can reference how parts are installed.

It's best to disassemble the carbs one at a time and at a bench and on top of a white rag, since there are quite a few small parts that can go missing if dropped.

Re: Carb clean

+1 on you tube step by step videos.

It's really not that hard of a process just take your time and do them one by one. That way if you do somehow screw up or get confused you can take apart the other carb and see where you went wrong.

You'll need

Some sort of gloves (carb cleaner dries out hands hella easy)
Carb cleaner
Air compressor (not needed but nice to have for blowing out parts)
Smallest e string from a guitar
Well lit area
Cut in half plastic water bottle to soak the carb parts in
And then all the tools needed to take everything apart

and rags or plastic bags for all the hidden gasoline that will spill out.

I just had a carb night at my house on Wed. A few buddies came over and walked me through the process while eating some delish Sicilian pizza and drinking some adult beverages.

The easy parts were taking the carbs out and cleaning (rejetting) them. The most difficult part was reassembly for me.

Here is a tip:
Take pictures of everything/anything you can.
If you want to get silly (like I did) take some painters tape and number the tubes for easy reassembly.

Also, lube up your throttle cables while you're there.

Godspeed, good sir!

Your best bet would be to post in the regional section for help.

I'd totally come help for a few brews but I kinda live halfway across the country
