Re: Reviving my í01 Curvy (Yes, I know thatís redundant)

We have brakes! The new double banjo MC bolt came in today and just got the new MZS brake lever/MC installed. Bled both the front and rear brake lines with fresh fluid. So one step closer. The MZS unit does look pretty sleek, but I do wish it had a bigger reservoir.

Next step is to install the new clutch this weekend, then hopefully should be ready for a test ride around the block. I did just change the oil though, so the question is if it's worth it to save the oil when I drain it and reuse it, or just consider it sacrificial, and put new oil in? I have about 1.5 quarts left in the new gallon that I can use also. Good thing I didn't flush the coolant yet, so that will be done in the process. Amazingly the ten year old coolant that is in it still looks fresh and green, like it's new!

If there's no contamination in the oil e.g keep bits out of it then it's fine to re-use but you might be like me and once oil is out of the engine I like to put fresh in.

As for the Coolant I would change it even if it looks alright it's too old IMHO and I use cheap concentrated Car Glycol Coolant 50/50 mix with Distilled water or if you want less Maintenance Advanced OAT ready-mix coolant.

Follow the instructions in the WSM to make sure you,"Burp" the system with the Rad cap off and the engine running to get all the Air out otherwise you can get an Air-lock in the Cooling system leading to overheating and possible Head gaskets blowing if the Bike is run above it's nominal temps.

I think I'm going to use the 1.5 quarts of fresh oil I have left and top it off with the "used" oil if it looks OK for now.

I already have the new coolant and distilled water, so will definitely be changing it, and will follow the service manual instructions for sure.

The oil was just put in less than 2 weeks ago and all I've done is start the bike for a couple of minutes and rev it a few times. There should be no harm in re-using it I think.

Re: Reviving my í01 Curvy (Yes, I know thatís redundant)

If it's not one #$^& thing it's another! Got my diaphragm in today and it looks like it's not the right part. My diaphragms have this little tab with an O-ring on it and the one I received does not have this. The Ebay listing cleanly indicates it will work for my bike. Will it still work?



And then to add to my problems, my clutch does not look like it's coming in today - seems they shipped it to the wrong place and I can't even contact them! I f#%$^* hate Ebay!

Re: Reviving my í01 Curvy (Yes, I know thatís redundant)

Sorry to hear about your probs.

I hope someone with more experience of these carbs can chime in.


As I've not done any internal work on the SV's CV carbs I can't be sure but that small o-ring might be able to be substituted with a small o-ring not attached to the Diaphragm and stuck into place with a thin smear of RTV.

On my old Honda CV carbs there was a similar small o-ring as part of the ACV(Air-Cut-Off) system so I suspect this is similar.The ACV system on CV carbs enriches the fuel when the throttle is closed to allow for the thinning of the mixture and avoids the lean-popping effect of this.



If you look at this old blow-up of my old CV carbs around the middle right you will see a small diaphragm/spring system and then a small o-ring.This is the ACV system on those carbs.

I did think of just cutting off that O-ring from the old part and gluing it in. I was just wondering what this ring is for, as I don't think there is a passage in the vacuum cover that it connects to - I think it just dead ends there. Might give it a go.

I suspect that the O-ring will be held in place/compressed once the carbs are buttoned up but just needs holding in place whilst that's done.When it's the attached type that's done automatically.
