hey guys
firstly im going for my Ps in about 3 weeks
but before that i need to clean and balance my carbs
i've got a socket set and a couple of screwdrivers
i'll get a can or 2 of carby cleaner as well
all i need is someone to show me how its done and hopefully have a manometer
i know theres a couple of topics but id rather someone show me how to do it as the topics dont cover everything and lack pictures

i got a quote for about 500-600 bucks from a mechanic and i definitely cant afford that right now, besides id rather do it myself than pay a mechanic to do it

i live in hornsby, so hopefully if someone nearby could help that would be great
dont mind going a fair distance as long as its not as far as wollongong

also is there gonna be a service day anytime soon? coz that would be easier

thanks

There's a good thread on cleaning the carbs in the archives here:
http://motorbikecity.com/cbr250/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=8268

As for the rest, you'll have to wait for more experienced user responses. Sorry. :)

It's a pity Wollongong is too far as I would do the carbies for at least half that quote depending on what it needed.

What you have to ask yourself is

a) Do I value my time am I prepared to do it a few times to get it right?
b) Could I spend the time that I would be working on my bike making money? For example it might take you 5 hours from start to finish and only 2 for me.

Hopefully you can find someone that is close to where you live and they can help you fix your bike.

yeah wollongong is way too far
but thanks for the offer, if im ever going down there i'll let you know

also im still at school so i wouldnt be losing any money if i was working on my bike
and i dont mind doing it a few times, i just dont wanna fuck up anything which might end up costing me more than the quote

crazylegs thanks for the offer
if the weather clears up, hopefully i could get it done soon
im not riding in the rain again till i get new tyres
i'll let you know

also yes, SERVICE DAY?
