Mike, you repaired and rebuilt my 79 CBX carbs over the winter and just want to let you know I couldn’t be any happier. From day one they performed perfectly with barely an idle adjustment. Thanks again. You’re a class act!
Rick in NJ
Nice job on the [1981 CBX] carbs! Stated immediately. Didn't even have to touch the idle. Perfect!
Albert in Calif
Very satisfied! Bike [GL1100] started right up and idled good, didn't have to touch anything. Best of all my dead cylinder came to life. All seem to be working equally and I put 10 miles on it this morning and it was much more enjoyable than ever before. Good job dude!
You really done good again this time. Finally had some nice enough weather to put the carbs you rebuilt for me on the CB550K, and some other things it needed. Just the lightest tap on the starter button, and the bike fires right up, and runs great through the entire rpm range. Thanks!!!
David in NY
Mike, my bike [1981 CB750] hasn't run this good in 35 years! I just wanted you to know. Thank you for the great work. I'll be sure to tell others.
Good Morning Mike. Just wanted to give you some feedback regarding the CBX Carb rebuild service you recently provided. All in all a great experience. You kept me apprised of the progress along the way, when the carbs arrived the packing was excellent, and the carbs looked great. Installation went fairly smoothly and your video about hooking up the throttle cables was very helpful. Although the bike had not been started and was neglected for 8-9 years it started right up and idled perfect. The test drive went great with no issues. The bike runs flawlessly , with smooth power and a great sound. Looking forward to logging some miles on her. Thanks very much for great customer service experience.
From a bike shop in Minnesota: Customer picked up his GL1100 Goldwing today. He was really impressed with how good it ran and how nice the carburetors look. Called me after he drove it home 30 miles, and he said it never ran so good. Said he cracked the throttle, up to 80 just like that! Thanks again.
My CX500 you did the carbs for has been sitting for a few years without running. I didn't drain the carbs. Yesterday, I rolled it out. Though I treated the gas like you told me to, I figured I was going to have trouble. Pushed the start button and it fired right up! It runs great! Thanks!
Mike, you "massaged" the carbs for my 1986 Honda VFR750F Interceptor over this past summer. Once I installed them I knew they were fixed, because the bike idled beautifully. I have never ridden a bike that carbureted so well, super smooth, awesome! So sweet, after nine months of owning this bike, I found out how it is supposed to run. Thank you!
Hi mike, the CB400F is back! Whatever was wrong is no longer there. Smooth, powerful, just perfect. Thanks again, and watch out for another Starbucks card coming your way!
Nick in Calif
I finally got enough time to finish the Sabre V65, and with many thanks to you, it is running better now than it has in all of the years I've owned it. Nice job on the carbs. The choke now works as it should and the only adjustment I needed to make was a very slight one with the idle speed. Thanks also for the tips on valve adjustment.
Put the carbs on my 1978 CB750K. It fired right up, checked with sync gauges, perfect balance. Runs like a charm. Can't say enough about Nixon's professionalism. Save yourself a lot of trouble and grief and get it done right the first time.
Hey mike. Got my [GL1500] carbs on and it purrs like a kitten.
Followed your video on cable installs and overall tips sheet. Runs out really nice. Instant starts. Plugs nice light tan. Can't say enough good about it. A1+
Hello Mike. I finally finished the engine rebuild and got it running. Just wanted to let you know that you did a great job on the CB1100F carb rebuild. The bike starts and runs better than new. Can't wait to get it on the road.
Tom in Mass
Hi, Mike! I received my CB1100R carbs today, and could not wait to get them on. They have been mounted and engine started up. And I'm very pleased to tell you that its spinning like new. Thanks a lot for the outstanding efford you put into my carbs.
Hi Mike!! I got the carbs on and went for a nice 60 mile ride. They perform and look wonderful!! Thank you so much.
David in TN
I just received my 1979 Honda CBX carburetors back from Mike Nixon at the Motorcycle Project and the quality of the rebuild far exceeded my very high expectations. Mike had his work cut out taking my badly abused carbs and fully restoring them to their original glory. I had planned on doing the restoration myself, having some experience of restoring motorcycles, but quickly realized I didn't have the tools or the knowledge to be successful. I called Mike and he explained the entire process. He kept me updated on his progress and offered various solutions to the issues he discovered. The finished item is unbelievably beautiful and has made the complete restoration of my 79 Honda CBX an infinitely simpler proposition. I highly recommend his services for fellow CBXers.
Andrew Walsh, FL
Great job Mike, the [CBX] carbs are beautiful and they work great! [You] turned out to be honest and the real deal, which was a welcome change from the motorcycle "mechanics" that I crossed paths with here in CA
Mike, you rebuilt the carbs for my CBX earlier in the year and I have been meaning to write to you. I wanted to let you know it runs great. The bike never really idled down and now when you release the throttle, it just drops right back to idle. Thanks again, great job!
Mike, you are quite the mechanic. Put it all back together today. This CBX sounds like brand new. Adjusted the idle and it is so smooth it is great. It was well worth the expense. Look forward to many days of riding. THANK YOU!
Tommy in Arkansas
I have spent the last few days installing the carbs, putting the bike back together and checking all the settings. The CBX fired up right away, I set the idle and went for a ride. The bike ran better than it has ever run before, no hesitation when starting off, smooth and predictable acceleration; I couldn't be happier. Thank-you for getting my carbs running correctly!
Rick in Canada
Bike [Venture 1200] is running amazingly smooth. Well done on the carbs!!
Tim in Oklahoma
It [CB1] is running better than it ever has. Smooth power delivery. Steady idle. You sir are a master. I could not be more pleased. I can't wait to put some miles on her and ride it like it has always deserved. Thanks again Mike.
Sam in Texas
Oh my! My bike [CB350 twin] runs like a dream! No lugging in any gear; no leaks anywhere. Simply put, the bike runs and rides better than we could have anticipated. Love the throttle responsiveness. An absolute pleasure. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the little Honda. Unbelievable.
Marty in IL
She [VF700] fired up and runs perfect! Thanks again! I'll be sure to run Sta-Bil in it.
Noah in Minnesota
I got the [CBX] carbs in and everything is running great, all I had to do is adjust the idle. I could not be happier with the results. It was a real pleasure doing business with you. Many thanks.
Nice!! Bike [BMW R80] runs great! You did your usual beautiful work again. Thank you so very much!
David in NY
Mike, I have about 300 miles on it now - I don't think it could run any better than it is. This is a happy Honda Four. It immediately fires up the instant I hit the starter button and responds without hesitation at any rpm, no misfires or flat spots. All four cylinders pulling very hard at all speeds and at idle settles right down to a steady even purr at 1200. I checked the mileage after going 182 miles before reserve and am getting 47 mpg - I didn't think I would get more than 40. Couldn't be happier with the way this thing is running!
Thanks very much for your fine work, Mike!
Well, I don't even know what to say other than you do amazing work. I finally fueled them up [CL350 twin] and the bike started immediately. After a bit of adjusting it idled perfectly. I cannot thank you or praise your work enough. You will hear from me again with more work. I am so truly happy and impressed...am on cloud 9. This has been such a long journey but the pay-off is so sweet. I think you can guess who will be doing the carb for it if I choose to take on another project. Very sincerely.
I'm ecstatic! I've never heard a CBX run before. It runs perfectly. Snappy throttle! Idle smooth as silk. All exhaust temps equal. No difficulty during reassembly after reading your articles. Thank you so much for getting me through this. Perfect job!
Hi, Mike! It [CBX1000] idles perfect, 850-900rpm. It is first time with this bike when I have really good idle, thanks to you for the good job!! Bike runs good and it is easy drive and easy to start too!!
Osmo in Finland
Hi Mike. My wife and I took the first ride (a little over 200 miles) on my GL1100 after reinstalling the carbs you rebuilt. All I can say is THANK YOU!!!!!! When I first contacted you I told you that my bike had been running fine, but had developed a fuel leak. I was obviously wrong, my bike was definitely not running well back then. The only change made to the bike is the carb rebuild, and it is running more smoothly than ever, with a noticeable increase in power and a 19.2% increase in fuel mileage as compared to the best mileage I have ever gotten on the Wing. I averaged just a little over 37 MPG, with about 40 miles in Washington DC Metro traffic congestion, and the balance around 70MPH. I will definitely be recommending The Motorcycle Project to anybody requiring your services. Thank you again Mike for the quality of service, the help, advice, and just for making this project most enjoyable and successful. God bless.
Got the carbs on the bike [1999 CB750] and put the gas tank and the airbox on. It is running fantastic. Pulls very strong in all gears and idles very smooth with no hesitation when I crack the throttle. It also seems to be getting better fuel economy. Thanks for the great work.
Dominick in FL
Mike, Happy New Year! I wanted to drop you a line letting you know the rebuilt [1981 CB650] carbs are working out great. I was able to install them before the icy cold weather descended and was able take the bike out for a few long rides. It's dead perfect! Thank you for helping me finally getting this bike running correctly. Another very satisfied customer.
Mike -- Got the KTM450 carb back on. Fired right up, runs great! Much cleaner than before. 12 years takes its toll. Excellent. Thanks again.
Nick in Calif
Mike: I just wanted to share with you how great your rebuild services were for me. This was a special situation in that this 1980 CB750 has high sentimental value -- I am the original owner, buying it my first week after college graduation! It sat for about five years with fuel in the carb system and the carbs were quite clogged. I brought it to two shops which were both unsuccessful in making it run properly. I knew from your website guidance that since the electrical system and compression values were within normal ranges that I was pretty safe assuming my woes came from serious carburetion problems. So, I sent them to you. I had a great experience during the rebuild; you sent several update emails, and your last email was perfect as it included specific instructions and fuel additive options. Wonderful! During reinstallation, you were there sending me emails as to what to do to get everything perfect! A great side benefit was simply the fantastic exterior cleaning you did on the carbs -- they look brand new! Riding this bike now feels like 1980 all over again! 9,500 RPM NEVER sounded so smooth and sweet! Thank You Mike!
Leonard in Calif
Good day Mike. A couple years ago you rebuilt our four carbs for our father/son 1975 CB550 cafe racer project. It is finally finished and I wanted to say thank you for your part in the project. The bike ran nearly perfectly on first start, I tweaked only one carb by only a needle width. Hope you have a blessed Chirstmas.
Mike Bunn, NC
Finally got all the [VF500F] body parts on and went for a ride to get some gas. Bike throttle response is really good and it idles fine. Did some quick stops to see if I could make it stall but it runs fine no stalling. Starts right up also. So thanks for all your help, I think the carb work really helped.
Joe in NY
Hello Mike, yup as expected. Installed the [VF1000F] carbs on the big v4 and fired right up. Idles perfect and runs strong at any rpm. Thanks again Mike!
Mario in L.A.
Installed the [CB550] carbs, installed the tank, put in the battery and she fired right up first try. Set the idle and took it out for a spin, the bike ran great and pulled hard all the way up. Thanks for the work on the carbs, I'm very happy with them.
Hello Mike...installed carbs on the [CB1] 400 and it started right up and revs clean to red line. THANKS!!!!
Mario in L.A.
Mike, I got my K1 [CB750] back on the road this weekend and I wanted to follow up with you on the carb rebuild you did for me last August. It is amazing how good the bike runs again. It starts and idles like a charm. The throttle response is excellent and it pulls hard all the way to the redline. All I did is mount them and set the idle rpm at 1000. Just as you said, no sychronization was needed. Used your ignition book to set up the points and time, dwell the thing. I learned a lot about the old girl. Thank you for you quality service and know how!
I could not find a shop local to me that would rebuild my ST1100 carburetors. I contacted Mike by text and also called and discussed the symptoms of my bike's poor performance. I sent in my carburetors and received a text from Mike the moment he received them, another text after he began working on them, and another text letting me know they had been shipped and provided a tracking number with insurance. I can't tell you how much peace it gave me to have this kind of communication. Once I received my carburetors back, I was amazed at how clean they looked. They looked nearly brand new. Mike even included a "Tip Sheet" on best practices when reinstalling carburetors to insure peak performance. After I reinstalled my freshly renewed carburetors my bike woke up and idled and ran as smooth as silk. In the 8 years I've owned this bike this is the best it's ever performed. I highly recommend Mike Nixon at "The Motorcycle Project" for any of your motorcycle carburetor repair needs. Thanks Mike!!
Mike I just wanted to take a minute and let you know how good of a job you did to these [ST1100] carbs! I got them on and running. Beautiful! Thanks again!
It has been a while since I received the carbs but as this is a project bike, it wasn't ready for a test run. But the last few days I have been riding and have about 50 miles or so on the carbs. I am very pleased. Instant start, instant throttle response, roll off to slow idle is quick and dependable. And the bike makes a lot of go! Thanks again!
Gary in TX
Just started the CBX for the first time since the carbs came back. It starts right up and idles smoother than I can ever remember. You know, it's amazing how much nicer it is riding a CBX when it runs right. I think it ran as well or better than it ever has. Can hardly hear that 39 year old clutch rattle. I didn't even think about checking sync. With all the trouble I have had this summer, I was feeling like it is time to try to find it a good new home. After that short ride, I am thinking I should keep it a while. It was really nice today.
S. Holter, MN
Mike, I realized I never got back to you on the carb job. Bike started right up, adjusted the idle..PERFECT! I want to thank you and I will spread the word.
Mike, I was about to bail on the [CB750SC) but I decided to put my trust in The Motorcycle Project and see it through. The majority of my career was as an automotive engine machinist and auto service center owner and to be honest, I've never paid anyone to do any kind of mechanical repair for me, I did it myself. I'm glad I found you, this bike runs like a sewing machine!!! Thanks for your expertise and hard work.
Joe in NJ
Mike, hi, just a quick note to let you know the [CB750K4] carbs are installed, the motor runs smooth and strong, like a brand new 750!! The carbs are fantastic! No longer need to adjust the clutch, the carbs seemed to fix everything. Thanks again. I'll refer you to anyone I can.
Brad in Idaho
[The DOHC 750 carbs]...were outstanding! Fired right up, adjusted the idle, warmed the bike up with a fan running, synced the carbs, which was minor. Runs great, no more flat spot, etc. Another set of carbs headed your way before too long. Thanks for the great work and fast service.
Nils, friend and shop owner
The [CB550] carbs are incredible! They could be in a museum!
Ok. Installed carbs, fresh fuel, Sta-Bil, checked everything I'm finally running on all four cylinders. Acceleration is great. No popping, chuffing, or complaining. I don't have to sneak up on 7000 RPMs. Yay. Thanks a ton!
I installed the carbs you did recently for my 900F on the weekend. I thought it ran ok before, now it ticks over like a Swiss watch and revs cleanly all the way to over 7000rpms.
Not that I expected any less, that's why I sent them to you.
It [CB750C] runs like a Swiss Watch! I hooked up my sync. tool and they were so close I didn't even crack a jam nut! Thanks!
Great [GL1000] carbs, and even greater service! And an education to boot! Thanks Mike!
Just got the bike [GL1000] running in the last couple days. After new points & condenser and making the right adjustments, it fired right up and runs great! Need to rebuild the brakes and wait for a warm day to take it for a ride. I'll keep you posted. Thanks so much for a great job rebuilding my carbs.
Good Morning Mike,
I installed the [VF500] carbs, cables, air box and new filter & put the tank on. Gassed it up and it started and ran steady at 1,500 RPM. I let it warm up. The throttle response is instant. This was the first time I have heard the bike run since I have owned it. Such sweet music to hear all 4 cylinders working in unison.
Barry Avery, GA
Mike, hey! Fresh gas, started [GL1000]. Drove around for about 1 hour. Smooth. No leak. No glitch at takeoff. I'm happy. Especially after all the trouble I had with ignition and all, you helped more than I would be able to pay you. My money was well spent with you.
Peter Alamo, CA
Good morning Mike. I got the carbs back on the [GL1100] Gold Wing last night. The bike awoke from its 3 year hibernation without a glitch. It's idling at about 900 rpm and I didn't have to touch a thing. Thanks again for your excellent work.
Mike, Just a quick note to thank you for the terrific job you did on my CBX carburetors and the advice and support you offered when I had experienced problems. Thanks!
Dan Bresett, CA
Hi Mike! Carbs installed in the VFR and it runs like a brand new bike!!! You are an absolute wizard!!! Thank so much!!! I will definitely send you the ZR1100 carbs when I get to that project! Which is soon!!!
Hi, Mike just to let you know I got the cb650 running today, runs great, thank you for your help and quick service. I also went through the Ignition per your page. It's raining real bad. Can't wait. Thanks.
...it fired up instantly. Your carb work is absolutely phenomenal and the bike sounds like a caged demon ready to be cut loose. Your services were worth every penny and I will not hesitate to recommend you to everyone I can. I cannot thank you enough for your willingness to go above and beyond not just fixing my carbs, but to make sure my bike runs the way it should.
Mike, I checked the vacuum hoses as you suggested, ended up replacing some hoses and hose clamps. Then I checked everything according to the factory service manual - checked good. Mike, the [GL1500] carburetors are perfect! Thanks! I wish I knew about you before those other idiots worked on it. Refreshing to find someone that knows what he's doing. Thanks so very much.
I have about 200 miles on it [1981 CBX] now and it is running flawlessly. I am sure a good part of the reason is the carb work you did for me. Thanks for doing a great job on my carbs. It is very much appreciated!
All back together and the bike [BMW R25/3] runs great! Thanks again!
Hello Mike. I hope this email finds you and yours well. Just wanted to let you know that my latest CBX project runs. You did the carbs a little while ago. She started up with one short push on the starter button!! So, thanks again for your terrific work!
Mike, I just did my first 86 miles, and it [CB750 DOHC] runs AMAZING!!! It fired right up, and just purrs at all speeds. Thank you soooo much again for your hard work.
It [CB750 SOHC] sounds beautiful and still mean. I love it. Thank you for doing such a good job mike. I need to get an exhaust now then I'll record a video in case you'd like to hear it.
Mike, the [CB500 Four] carbs are fantastic! Great experience from start to finish. Not only did you do a fantastic job on the carbs but your guidance and knowledge on a host of other issues that I encountered on this old bike has been invaluable. Thanks!
Joe Alfano, FL
I want to thank you again for the great job you did on my [CB750C] carburetors! I just had to set the idle, the engine ran good and also quit vibrating at 55 mph. For the first time the exhaust manifolds all came up to heat even. It was fantastic! If you need any recommendations, please use this information. Your work was extremely appreciated.
Awesome job Mike - THANK YOU. She [CB750F2] runs like the day I bought her - maybe better. Starts good and runs like a spotted ass ape once she is warmed up.
Gary Herring, TX
Mike, here's a video of my 75 CB750. The first time I pushed the starter button, vroom! I still can't believe how it started!
Mike, got the carb a couple of days ago, just had the time to install it. Carb was super clean and when the bike was all back together it fired right up. Idle adjusted and bike runs fine. Thank you very much for your time and skills.
Absolutely stunning, Mike! I put them [CBX carbs] on, finished up the exhaust and wiring and cables and everything, and wham, the bike started right up and with the choke off settled into a perfect idle! I was amazed! I didn't have to touch a thing. What a relief after all the frustration of trying to do it myself! I sure appreciate your effort and expertise, not to mention all the advice concerning carb removal and install. Mike, thanks!
William Adler, NV
Mike, just got them [CBX] back on and it started right up. I'm impressed!
Hi mike, I finally got the bike back together. Excellent job on the [GL1100] carbs, it runs amazing, so smooth and instant throttle response!
I put the carbs on the CBX today and she purrs like a kitten. No more clutch rattle. Great job!
Mike the bike [85 Honda CB700SC] is up and running and sounds great thanks again.
Mike, you did a fantastic job on the [ST1100] carbs. It runs great and is very smooth. Thanks again Mike and a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you.
Wow!! ...it was like Christmas. What a thing of beauty to see the carbs all so perfect. It was a hard decision to entrust someone to do this rebuild of my carbs right and you certainly did not disappoint. Very nice job and I will be using your services for future carb needs. Thanks again Mike. GOOD JOB!
Hi mike, I'm impressed! I got it all together and it started in 10 cranks of the starter with about one third choke. I bumped the idle up a hair and it's perfect. It runs really well, no leaks, just great. Thanks for the great work, and I'll be sending you the carbs from my next one.
You rebuilt two sets of 750 carbs for me mid last year. I finally finished one of my project bikes a few weeks ago and thought I'd send you a couple of pics as you requested. Once I sorted out a couple of electrical issues the bike fired up straight away and ran perfectly. I'm very happy with the service I received and the end result of your work.
Mike, I just wanted to let you know that I've gotten the bike out on the road and your carburetor overhaul worked miracles. The ST [ST1100] is performing flawlessly! What a joy to ride now. Thanks again.
I've ridden the bike [VF500] for about 20 miles so far. I'm in the process of getting it registered and the DMV is really a hassle, so I ride it around the block occasionally. The bike runs great! The motor always starts with just one push of the starter button, purrs like a kitten and sounds great when revved. I think the best thing I did was to have you rebuild the carbs. Thanks!
Well I couldn't stand the thought of my rebuilt carbs sitting on the workbench for up to two weeks before I got time to put them on the bike. So I took this afternoon off and did the job. Just returned from the test ride. The bike runs perfect! Starts easy, idles well and has good power through all gears and rpms. In my book I got what I paid for. The bike now runs as good as it looks. I got the impression on the Internet that you were a pro. Now I can personally confirm it. Your communication was excellent and your work speaks for itself. Thanks for a job well done!
Bob Behan, MN
Well Mike, I installed the carbs last night and, only took a few seconds to get the bike started. Great throttle response and ticks over lovely. It used to be a case of cranking the bike for a few minutes to get it started but thankfully not any more. Got the bike out for a spin today and sounded sweet. Ticked over so smooth. Well worth paying for your expert hand and Looking forward to years of trouble free riding. Thanks again.
After a few cranks, she [CB550K7] fired right up and seems to idle nicely...took it up and down the street a couple times and it sounded great. Nice job!
I'm impressed!! I don't think that I've ever encountered anyone in this business with your level of customer service!
Hi Mike. Thanks for another great job on the last set of CBX carbs you rebuilt for me. The bike fired right up and purred like a kitten.
Well known performance shop
I was finally ready to start and ride the bike, with the [VF500C] carbs you rebuilt. It runs great. I had to increase the idle a hair, but that was all. You did a great job.
Mike, the GL1000 you helped resurrect [with carburetor rebuilding] is running great and my son thinks it's the coolest bike on the planet!
Installed everything and followed your suggestions and it [GL1200] started right up and definately runs much much better. Thanks for the great work and so far have given your name to 3 others.
Finished installing carbs last night and cranked her up and she purrs like a kitten! Adjusted the idle and she sounds real good. You did a fantastic job and I thank you. I still need to put some new tires on her to be road ready but I expect I'll have her on the road real soon.
The Wing [1975 GL1000] runs great. You do very nice work.
Bart Iden, AZ
Just wanted to let you know after the fantastic ['75 GL1000] carb rebuild you completed, I had the radiator serviced, new coolant, new plugs, new timing belts, new throttle cables, change of gas & oil. A bike that sat in storage for just over 12 years fired up and ran like a new watch. Many thanks for your help. Pictures are attached. I do have just a little wiring to complete and it will be ready for the road.
Fred Waller, CA
I got the carbs [1975 CB750] back from you today and everything went back together well. The bike runs excellent and only took a small idle adjustment. Thank you Mike!
The bike ran beautiful when i started it, no rattle at all. It is amazing that it runs so great without any adjustments to carbs, honor to You. Thanks again for the great restoration of [DOHC 750] carbs.
I don't think I told you that the new gas cap solved the problems I was experiencing during my last ride. The 1100F runs like a champ now, and it have the confidence to ride it anywhere, now. A buddy and I were out last Friday during a beautiful afternoon, having about a 100 mile ride across our surrounding counties. The Honda purred/roared throughout.
Mike Kroeker, KS
Mike, the bike [GL1200] fired right up. Runs great. Adjusted idle. Perfect. Very exciting!!
Wow! Got the carbs [GL1000] installed today and this thing runs awesome! Popped right off and goes like a raped ape. Fantastic job! Thanks Mike!
Tyler Oester, WA
Hi , Mike. Well I finally got the Honda [CB750K8] fired up today after much anticipation. I have to tell you the carbs are purring like kittens!!! I really did not even have to do much adjusting to them except turn the idle down a hair! I have to say thank you so much for your expertise and help!
Rick Silberman, CA
How's it going? Just wanted to update you on the GL1000 project. You did a fantastic job on the carbies. It idles like a kitten and acceleration is like silk!
Rick Carrano, NY
Well, after getting the coils attached, fired up immediately. Everything is doing what it should... It's a very good ride - pulls strongly, smooth, mirrors rock steady at any rpm, brakes are perfect (your book helped me through that project too)... Thanks for the help.
Bill Mills, MI
Finally got to the CBX up to first start - once the carbs were charged it went first time and just adjusted the idle so thanks for a great result. Here's the wonderful noise...
Allen Lusk, VA
Bike [CB750K8] runs awesome!! Thanks so much!!!
Kevin Jones, CA
I installed the carbs on the CB1000 Monday. This is my third '94 CB1000 and I have to tell ya, this one runs better than the others. Way! Man - no more than five seconds on the starter and the CB fired up and runs smooth. A quick idle speed adjustment and I haven't had to mess with them again. Truly a plug and play bank of carburetors. Your communication throughout the process and on time delivery were very much appreciated. You made things easy on me and the bike runs great. Thank you!
Lou Bottini, CA
I finally got a chance to put the carbs on today.... Waited for the bowls to fill and.....poof.... It idles like a watch... Thank you Mike Nixon....
Jeffrey (Jebby) Gadiant, TX
Wow! It [CBX] spools up like it never did before! Throttle is seamless, no matter the gear, no hitches, unbelievable! Thank you!
[And two years alter...]
It is has been about 2 years that you rebuilt my CBX carbs ( live in VA in Chesapeake). Put about 10,000 miles on the bike and she still runs GREAT! With respect to the carbs, have not had to touch a thing. The bike does not make a mistake. So, once again, thanks for doing a great job.
Ted Kooij, VA
Thank you for the great service.
"Thank you so much! It [CBX] finally runs like it's supposed to! Great work!"
Jimmy in L.A.
The idle is absolutely spooky, it is so smooth set at 900rpm that when you pull the clutch in and allow it to drop back to idle you swear it is going to die as the revs drop off so quickly but then settle at 900. By the way I have done nothing but plug and play and adjust the idle. Bike runs SUPER!!!!!!!!!!!
Just wanted to let you know that 8 months after the carb rebuild the bike is still running fantastic. I did finally get around to checking the balance last month, number 3 was just a tad odd so I adjusted it to where all 6 are within about 1/4" of each other on the gauge. The bike is so smooth and powerful, starts INSTANTLY whether it sits for an hour or a week, and idles silky smooth at 1000rpm.
Hi Mike! As they say, [GL1000] purrs like a kitten! Thanks very much for doing such a great job! Best Regards to a quality craftsman.
Rick Schramek, CA
Just a quick email to update you on the [CB350F] carbs...they did arrive on Thursday of last week and they were installed on the Friday afternoon. Absolutely no dramas whatsoever...fired away... runs beautifully. It's nice to see how this bike is supposed to run against the way it was running. Thank you again for your help and patience with the issues that I had, and for all your wealth of information that you passed on in trying to help me get to the result that I needed. It's now an absolute joy to ride and hard to get off....
Mike Hello, I just wanted to let you know I installed my carbs and a new Dyna Ignition on my CBX. They work awesome together. Thanks for your time, you did a fantastic job on my carbs....thanks again.
Just a quick note....[the] bike is running as it should. It just purrs now and [I am] is VERY happy. It just now needs some serious riding.
Mike -- Fresh fuel and filter started right up sounds great, set idle, real nice work!

Mike, just put 'em on [CBX] and the bike purrs like a kitten! Fantastic! Had some help over to assist with throttle sync and we just said, "what for?". It sounds beautiful! Thanks!

...after an oil change & new radiator fluid and fresh fuel the bike started without any problems. First time in over thirty years and she purrs like a champ. New tires and some lightning and it'll be street legal!
