  • Toys for the n00b

    Hey guess I came home today from work and I swear it was like Christmas early this year for me...it's just too bad I had to buy myself these gifts:

    I also wanted to ask, if there is a way I could actually clean the carb itself. I bought it used and everything else is shiny/new looking but the carb.

        You could probably try some brake cleaner on it to clean it up. Just make sure it has all dried before you install it.

            I definately did, you saved me like $20! I was going to talk to you more when you got a chance about the full soft doors I was going to see if one of my bright idears works. (I meant to say idears) Also no catalog yet

              glad to see that you got your toys.
              which top did you end up going with?
              sometimes, I think that I would like to have a soft top,
              so I can get topless faster, and without the help of the neighbor's

                I don't know if I would use brake cleaner, might be to harsh for the seals and any plastic parts. I would get the carb cleaner for the outside of the carb, Autozone sells it. Then when you are done hit the linkage with some WD-40 so it doesn't lock up on you.

                  Remember I am very very new at this is the linkage that piece in the 2nd pic that's above the carb?

                      Carb cleaner and a rag and alot of time and it will clean it off or you can buy the high concentrated stuff that is more potent then carb cleaner...we use it up at work on old jetski carbs. we let them soak in it (comes with a basket to hold parts in the bucket with) for a few hrs pull it out and wipe the stuff off and it comes right off.

                            Brake cleaner would play hell on anything but metal in the carb. Use the stuff with a basket in a gallon jug that you soak for several hours, or some carb cleaner in a spray can. Don't use brake cleaner!!!
