Rebuilding the Honda CBX1000 Carburetor
My favorite booklet - and others' too (thank you everyone!). Copies have been purchased by a Honda R&D employee and employees at Fast by Gast and Orient Express. Rebuilding the CBX1000 Carburetor is in its fourth edition, now over 50 pages. This is the booklet that trained many of my competitors! You can also benefit! The Honda factory museum also purchased a copy, I am not lying. Includes o-ring replacement, carburetor removal and replacement, and QR codes linked to helpful videos! This book takes the reader step by step through cleaning and rebuiilding a set of Honda CBX six cylinder carburetors. Included is how to remove and replace the carburetors, and how to replace the casting (body) o-rings. Also, how to remove and replace the carbs, how to get those pesky idle jets clean, detail about the various circuits, best practice for adjusting the float level, dealing with common carburetor issues, and even massaging the accelerator pump. With this page count, the best value of all my books! If you have a four cylinder instead of a six cylinder, here's another book for you to look at. The CBX book is 8 1/2" by 11", 50+ pages, and contains almost 200 clear illustrations, most of them close-ups. Also included are full-page diagrams of complex circuits. Contact me for more information and read reviews of this booklet immediately below and here as well. And here, on my carburetor work.
